In a busy Sunday of tech news, rumours grew of Apple's plans to enter the HD TV market, while an iPhone 4 price cut will interest those in the market for the iPhone 5. There's news from Google and Nintendo too in our Tech Today round-up.

Apple to launch HDTV in March 2012?
Here's another Apple rumour that just won't go away. Reports on Sunday claim that the Cupertino-based giant will launch  HD TV sets in March 2012, which will come in three different sizes. Wall Street analyst Trip Chowdry says the anticipated telly will be similar to the Bose VideoWave, in that it will have a built-in sound system. Using information he has culled from various developer events, Chowdry reckons Spring of 2012 is the most likely timeline for arrival.

Google TV gets massive price cut following sales flop
Although Google TV is yet to reach the UK, the chances are that when it eventually does, it's not going to be the premium-priced set top box we all assumed it would. The Logitech Revue box, one of the only Google TV-compatible devices has been slashed in price from $299 to a mere $99 US dollars. That's about sixty quid in real money.

iPhone 4 price cuts mean iPhone 5 is imminent
Both Radio Shack, a sort-of higher-end US version of Maplin, and Target... well we don't have an equivalent to the awesomeness that is Target, are all set to cut the price of the iPhone 4 handset on Monday, which usually means the arrival of the next generation model is imminent. Leaked documents suggest that, from tomorrow, yanks who sign up for a two year contract on the AT&T network will get a 16GB iPhone 4 for $169 instead of $199.

Orginal NES games to be updated for 3DS
Nintendo announced a while back that it would be offering Nintendo Entertainment System games on the new 3DS console. What they didn't let on until now is that these just won't be haphazard ports of Mario and Zelda, but full upgraded games for the new era. Now, these NES classics will boast new features like multiplayer. The announcement comes as part of the new Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program, which rewards those console owners with a host of free games.

Google Chrome overtakes Firefox in the UK
In a rather surprising turn of events, Google Chrome is now the UK's second most popular web browser, following Microsoft Internet Explorer. Chrome has overtaken Mozilla Firefox by snatching 22 per cent of the UK market, just three years after launch. A heavy advertising campaign has been credited, but it might have something to do with the latest version of Firefox being a massive turn-off for some.
