Apple TV: Steve Jobs' Unfinished Vision

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.

In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric discuss Apple TV and the nascent home entertainment opportunity Apple is staring down. While Apple TV was always a hobby during Steve Jobs' tenure, there's plenty of opportunity ahead for the platform.

Please note, in the video Eric mistakenly says Apple is selling an estimated 500,000 Apple TV units per month. The correct timeframe is actually per quarter. The figure was corrected in an adjoining graphic on Apple TV.

Apple tablets and iPhones are helping fuel an explosion of mobile data that's overwhelming wireless carriers.
