Perhaps one of the most anticipated products ever wished for from Cupertino is the smart TV we are all hoping Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) will release soon.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses some of the challenges Apple's device will face the moment it debuts -- assuming that day ever comes.
