Jobs on Wednesday.
   The event, in San Francisco,
California, didn’t produce any
bombshell announcements that
hadn’t been widely anticipated in
tech circles.
   But the moves refresh one of
Apple’s most enduring products
in advance of the holidays and
renew its efforts in the emerging
Internet television market.
   Having failed to make much
impact since it was released in
2007, Apple TV will get a dra-
matic price cut — from $299 to
$99 — an offer new features like
television show rentals for 99
cents.
   “We’ve sold a lot of them, but
it’s never been a huge hit,” Jobs
said, noting that no one else has
dominated the TV-computer inte-
gration space either. “Nothing’s
really hit in the living room yet.”
   The move pushesApple deeper
into competition with current
TV-integration devices like Roku
and TiVo Premiere and looks to
get a jump on Google TV, which
is expected out this fall.
   Only ABC and Fox have signed
on for the 99-cent TV rentals,
which will be commercial-free.
Apple TV currently lets users
buy TV shows for $2.99.

 “Sooner or Later” and set to be released in 2009 but was pushed to a 2010 release
