Apple content chief Eddy Cue says 'TV experience sucks'

Continuing a long-running Apple messaging campaign that dates back to Steve Jobs, company content chief Eddy Cue told attendees at technology blog Re/code's Code Conference on Wednesday that the "TV experience sucks" and that all consumers have at their disposal today are "glorified DVRs." However, also continuing what is fast becoming an Apple tradition, Cue offered no clues as to how future innovations of Apple products, including Apple TV, will disrupt this ostensibly moribund business for the better.
