Apple (AAPL) is talking with TV networks and cable providers about a service that would let users skip ads and compensate networks when they do so, sources tell former WSJ reporter Jessica Lessin. However, she adds it isn't clear how the feature would differ from the ad-skipping abilities of DVRs. Bloomberg recently reported of a pending deal to give Time Warner Cable subs the ability to watch via Apple TV. Also: The Korea Economic Daily reports Samsung (SSNLF.PK) will produce Apple's A9 CPU, via a 14nm process, starting in 2015. The report comes shortly after ones stating Apple will tap TSMC (TSM) to make 20nm chips in 2014, and (if true) suggests Apple is going for a dual-supplier strategy.
