A new report places Apple in discussions with large cable operators to possibly pipe their content through Apple TV or a similar set-top device. If accurate, such an arrangement would not only raise Apple’s profile in the television market, but could also greatly affect the nature of content coming to your TV screen – and how it gets there.It’s no secret that Apple wants to be a big presence in your living room. The $99 Apple TV set top box – and its associated technologies like AirPlay – are evidence of that. But now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple is working to negotiate a deal with cable providers that might enable live cable TV content to be viewed on Apple TV.Apple Pivots to a New PlanThese negotitaions may indicate that Apple has not been terribly successful in its original goal to license content directly from television and movie producers. That plan followed the cable-cutter model: give consumers enough content and they’ll replace their existing cable service with Apple’s Internet-based offerings. Google and Amazon have similar ambitions, with Google TV and Amazon Digital Services showing up on devices like the Vizio Co-Star and the Roku, set-top boxes, respectively.If Apple can cut a deal with the cable providers, it would avoid this disruptive model altogether. Instead, Apple could insinuate an Apple TV-like device into the current supply chain from content producer to cable provider to consumer.What Can Apple Offer?It won’t be easy. Other than hooking on to the Apple “cool” factor, there seems little incentive for cable companies to make such a deal. After all, most cable set-top boxes already use a Linux-based operating system layer (which is pretty much free) so why pay more for an operating system licensed from Apple? And, more importantly, cable companies already have the video content. What can Apple offer that they don’t?Well, these three things for starters:1. Music, for one. Apple has well and truly locked up deals with the recording industry, and on-demand music coupled with the capability to play a user’s songs over a home theater system would be a nice plus. For now, most cable and satellite services offer only streaming music channels, often from Sirius/XM.2. Internet content for another. Apple TV doesn’t currently have a Web browser, but a new for-cable Apple device could. For all their investment in TV browsing and DVR interfaces, that’s something that the cable companies don’t really have. Browsers are already showing up within set-top devices: the aforementioned Co-Star features Google’s Chrome browser.3. Apps could be the key to Apple’s appeal to the cable companies. Roku and other set-tops already feature some gaming apps, and cable companies may want to get in on the act. The few efforts made by the cable providers in this area have been, frankly, sad. Apple could bring an instant gateway to millions of high-quality iOS apps.There’s no telling how far along Apple’s talks with the cable companies have gotten, or if any such deal will come to fruition. But of all the players in this space, Apple is in perhaps the best position to deliver the most music and apps right now.That pre-eminent position may erode as Google Play and Android application development grows, so Apple may be trying to strike while the iron is hot to get a first-to-cable-market jump on its online competitors.For more on the ongoing evolution of television, see What’s At Stake In the Epic Battle Between TV Networks and Cable/Satellite Providers.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Many of the villagers living on the fringes of Odisha’s Satkosia Tiger Reserve (STR) were against having a tiger in their neighbourhood. But they had no say in the matter when two big cats were transferred from Madhya Pradesh to STR. And when a woman was found dead inside the STR on September 13, they were quick to conclude that it was the newly transferred tiger that had killed her.Large-scale protests and violence erupted, with locals torching Forest Department offices in the Hatibari and Tikarpara areas bordering the STR. Forest Department boats on the Mahanadi river were also set ablaze.But the post-mortem report of the deceased, which was released earlier this week, has failed to establish that the death was caused by a tiger attack. It only said that the death had been caused by “asphyxia” and that one injury was “consistent with destruction by carnivorous animal”.“The post mortem report is not conclusive. The woman could have been killed by a tiger or a bear,” Bijayshree Routray, Odisha’s Minister of Environment and Forest told The Hindu. Wildlife experts said that a tiger attack would have led to the human’s neck being broken, whereas in this instance, it was not. Also, much more muscle tear than what was noted in the post mortem report would have been observed.The Minister, however, said that despite the inconclusive post mortem report, there were few options available with the State. “We can tranquillise the animal and move it into STR’s core area, or keep it in some enclosure. We could also take it to Nandankanan Zoological Park near Bhubaneshwar,” Mr. Routray said, ruling out the possibility of relocating the animal back to Madhya Pradesh. He also claimed that the protests were “politically motivated” as a section of the locals were opposed to bringing tigers into the Reserve right from the beginning.Raghu Chundawat, a tiger expert and conservation biologist, said that the fact the person was killed by the tiger needs to come out clearly. “If the tiger has not killed her, then translocating it makes no make sense,” he said, adding that reintroduction into a habitat is a very important issue for conservation and knee jerk reactions should not come in the way of it.The tigress alleged to have killed the woman had been brought from Bandhavgarh National Park on June 28, and released in the STR on July 6. The Odisha Forest Department has said that the final call on shifting the tigress will be taken by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) and the Wildlife Institute of India (WII), which had helped in their initial translocation.
Reggie Jackson of the Detroit Pistons reacts reacts to a call late in the game next to Luke Babbitt #8 of the Atlanta Hawks at Little Caesars Arena on November 10, 2017 in Detroit, Michigan. Detroit won the game 111-104. Gregory Shamus/Getty Images/AFPThe Detroit Pistons are heading on the road for a few days, so maybe someone will see them play.They’ve certainly been worth watching.Detroit’s 10-3 start, good for No. 2 in the Eastern Conference standings, is one of the biggest good surprises in the NBA through the season’s first month. The Pistons already have a road win at Golden State, swept a five-game homestand — possibly to the delight of all those unoccupied red seats at Little Caesars Arena, more on that in a moment — and are off to their best start in 12 years.ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:48NBA: Kawhi, George seek more for Clippers than beating Lakers01:08Huge Toronto crowd celebrates Raptors’ historic win01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “I know that we’re playing as a team right now,” Detroit’s Luke Kennard said. “We’re really locked in. We’re really playing together and we play hard. When you have a team that does that together, you win.”Now comes the test.Starting Wednesday, the Pistons play five of their next six games on the road — visiting Milwaukee, Indiana and Minnesota before returning home to face Cleveland, then heading right back out for a trip to Oklahoma City and Boston.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAfter topping Miami to finish off a 5-0 homestand Sunday, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy made no effort to hide how pleased he is right now.“We did a great job here, and now you just move on to the next challenge,” Van Gundy said. “Now nine of 11 on the road, the next three games on the road against teams you beat at home so you know they want back at you. The challenges just keep mounting, but you put wins in the bank.” Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Maybe at some point, there will be fans in the seats.The brand-new Detroit arena has a listed capacity for basketball at 20,491, which was the announced crowd for opening night. In seven games since, the Pistons have announced crowds between 13,709 and 17,683 — and those numbers may be generous, given how empty the building looks on television. Officially, Detroit sold 76 percent of its tickets in those seven games.GIANNIS WATCHTechnically, no foreign player has ever won an NBA scoring title. Dominique Wilkins has one and he was born in Paris, but only because his father was in the U.S. Air Force.Giannis Antetokounmpo may change that in a few months. And if not this season, then probably soon enough.The Milwaukee star who hails from Greece went into this week averaging just over 31 points per game and leading the league in that department. He was the Most Improved Player last season and don’t be surprised if he gets more votes for that trophy this season — along with MVP ballots as well.ADVERTISEMENT CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

The aftermath included nine players being suspended, and security in NBA arenas has been different ever since.And Tuesday is the 16th anniversary of the first call-up from what is now called the NBA G League — the Denver Nuggets brought eventual NBA champion Chris Andersen up from the Fayetteville Patriots, a move that paved the way for hundreds of players to truly view the development league as a springboard to the NBA.THE WEEK AHEADSome games to keep an eye on over the coming days:— Philadelphia at L.A.

We have to see how the bone healing is, that’s always how it is when something [has] broke, but from his movements it looks nearly normal.”But there are still a few days to go until we can have them in team training, until [Joel] is ready for contact, which for a centre-half is pretty important. Until then we will make all the fitness work.”The good thing is Joel can do all the fitness work already since a week or so ago, so that means when he will be back he will be 100 percent fit.

The league has chosen to suspend the entire officiating crew two conference games after it was determined that four mistakes (two of which were crucial to the outcome) were made during the final play of the game. For those unaware, Miami returned a kickoff for the game-winning touchdown as time expired.Well, Miami, which benefited from the errors, has responded to the news on Twitter.
