Tech Today: Apple TV sets to be made by Samsung?

Apple reportedly planning TV set, iCloud sparks iPhone owners interest, PlayBook slightly upgraded and ITV Player lands on Android. It's the news that broke after you logged off.

Rumour: Apple TV branded sets incoming?
This rumour came and went without much fuss a while ago, but it's back. Daily Tech reckons that plans for a TV that would feature the Apple TV hardware built-in could be on the agenda, with Samsung tipped as the likely manufacturer. Those two companies aren't exactly on great terms at the moment so it'll be interesting to see where this goes.

RIM updates PlayBook, still no native email
The BlackBerry Playbook has received another minor software update, but unfortunately there's still no sign of the native email client and the Android app player. What it does bring is Flash 10.3 and Adobe Air 2.7. It'll improve performance but its not enough to life the jet black cloud hanging over the company.
