It won't be in the big news of the day or even discussed much in business news within Germany....but Loewe AG....the big name German manufacturer of high-standard televisions in Germany....is about to be bought by Apple.
The business sector says this is somewhere in the 110 million-dollar range.
What may be going down? Apple has a project left over from Steve Jobs....to build this nifty mini-TV that would connect to a vast network. Perhaps in this case....Loewe has a model which they've shown Apple, and suddenly the final piece to the puzzle is complete.
The hints to the story is that Loewe typically builds upscale products and usually has a four-star sound system built into the product.
My guess is that we are within a year or so....of having this pocket-sized device which can connect to a thousand different channels....perhaps even overseas channels. You pay for a subscription via Apple....turn your Loewe mini-TV on, and get updates to the latest soccer scores in Amsterdam, or catch up on the weather in New Zealand.
