The article discusses how Apple chief Steve Jobs failed in the development of the Apple iTV, which was renamed to Apple TV. Jobs combined all sources such as the cable, satellite, and the Internet to create the Apple TV. The cost of delivering TV shows over the Internet fell, and the Web was full with video of ever greater variety and quality, when the product debuted. The first Apple TV boxes could not tap the millions of new YouTube clips posted each month.
