Nothing sets diehard Apple fans’ hearts aflutter quite like an alleged email from Apple CEO Steve Jobs — and if you’re a diehard Apple fan, today is your lucky day. Mac Rumors reports that one of its forum members recently received a reply from Jobs in response to an AirPlay inquiry sent last week. In his email, the Apple fan asked Jobs if his company’s “seriously amazing” new AirPlay feature would ever become available for video in Safari and third-party apps. Jobs’ response, according to the report, was an affirmative: “Yep, hope to add these features to Airplay in 2011.” The authenticity of the email is anything but confirmed, but Jobs is known to reply to the odd email here and there so it’s entirely feasible that this is the real deal.
