    - TiVoOpsManager has left to join the TiVoCast Group. [Edit: Opps, thanks DaveZatz]

    - Apple has sent out press invitations to their 'Its Showtime' Event next Tuesday the 12th where the prevailing wisdom/rumours are that apple will announce a new TV/movie download service.

    - The S3 is supposed to launch on the 17th.

    - Rumours of an Apple/TiVo deal have been circulating for months.

    Could it be that Apple and TiVo will announce a joint TV/downnload service (ie: download to iTunes and then play it through your home network on your TiVo)?

    I wonder. I hope?

    I suppose that S3 could stand for Service 3 ?

    1. Cable

    2. Over The Air

    3. Internet

    I think an Apple/TiVo deal is a slam dunk. I'm betting money that it will happen on Tuesday.

    I sure hope so. I love the idea of iTunes, and even like the idea of downloading show episodes, and even full-length movies. Music to boot. However, I am not a fan of looking at a 15" LCD on my laptop when I could watch it on the bigscreen.....

    I think TiVo+Apple is just fan boy wishful thinking and won't happen. Being a fan boy, I'd like to be wrong. ;) I assume Apple (solo) will launch iTunes movies next week - if so I'll be picking up a Mac mini for FrontRow TV output.

    Actually that was TiVoOpsMgr, now TiVoStephen.
