Foxconn denies Apple iTV production report Last week, Foxconn chairman Terry Gou revealed in a speech that the company was making preparations to start manufacturing a television from Apple. Development or manufacturing of the device had not stared just yet, but was about to get underway.
Today, the company has rebuffed the original report, saying the CEO did not make any such comments.

Foxconn says Terry Gou "made it very clear that he would neither confirm nor speculate about Foxconn's involvement in the product," and that the company does not talk about current product lines.

"At no time did [Gou] confirm that Foxconn was in development or manufacturing stages for any product for any of its customers," continues Foxconn. "He did say that Foxconn is always prepared to meet the manufacturing needs of customers should they determine that they wish to work with Foxconn in the production of any of their products."

The oft-rumored "iTV" is expected to be a high-end television featuring Siri, FaceTime voice calling, and potentially a la carte cable channels.

You do realize that all of this crap is choreographed specifically to keep people talking about this.
Apple has the media world wrapped around their little finger and they are not even trying to be sly about it.

Let me know when this iBrick shows up in Best-buy.

Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
