Were we listening to the same AllThingsD interview?
FORTUNE — “We felt that after viewing the conversation, it seems fairly certain that Apple will launch a television, a watch, and multiple iterations of the iPhone by the end of 2014 as well as a potential new service offering.”
That’s how Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster — an Apple AAPL analyst who has been predicting the imminent arrival of an Apple television set since early 2009 — began his report to clients about Tim Cook’s appearance at AllThingsD Tuesday night.
I listened to that portion of Cook’s interview several times, trying to pick up the signals that Munster’s antennae received. What I heard instead were two journalists pressing very hard for details about an unannounced product that Cook made quite clear he was not going to talk about.
