Amid the media commotion occurring in the wake of Steve Jobs' resignation as CEO of Apple, Wall Street Journal tech guru Walt Mossberg has a juicy tidbit about why Jobs has offered to chair the company's board rather than leave Apple altogether.

On the AllThingsD blog, Mossberg writes that Jobs intends to still be deeply involved with future product development at Apple, and that one product in particular could be getting Jobs' legendary scrutiny: the long-rumored Apple TV. Or, rather, an Apple HDTV, which has been predicted by some analysts but is still just a rumor.

But, as Business Insider puts it, "Mossberg isn't going to just toss out some random rumor at the end of a big post on Jobs. This is probably the next big thing Apple has cooking up." It would certainly be just the type of game-changing product launch that Jobs has masterminded again and again as Apple CEO, so it will be interesting to see if the presumably well-informed Mossberg has some good reasons for legitimizing these rumors.

Do you think Jobs and Apple are working on a TV? Could this be the last great Apple product Jobs personally steers to market? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments section.
