    Not at all. Nothing to be jealous of :)

    Never claimed they were "facts", which is why I used "maybe". Although I did make a huge mistake- I was looking at sales not existing marketshare. So I did reword the posting. Let me fix further: According to several sources ( http://www.androidcentral.com/all-about-market-share-fragmentation-and-magic-forums is just one), Android sales [rates] have already way surpassed iphone and RIM (and long ago Microsoft and all others except Symbian) and marketshare is climbing at an astounding rate. If it continues (which is extremely likely), it will overtake Symbian and then there will be more Android sales [rate] than any other smartphone OS's in early 2011. And later in 2011, the total number of devices IN USE will surpass any other OS.

    As for tablets: Android has not really been ready for tablets (manufacturers have been waiting on 3.0). But when it is (which is just a few months now), there will be a slew of new Android tablets, from your pick of manufacturer, priced less than the iPad, with more features and speed, and likely with the same type of Android demand behind it as in the phone sector.

    The point being- ignoring Android would be extremely unwise for any phone/pad developer.

    I agree that once Verizon gets the iPhone, sales will increase. However, Android has one thing that Apple doesn't.....low end devices. There are many people who just won't spend a lot of money on a phone. Android will cater to those people......I doubt that Apple ever will.

    It has a lot more than just one thing. It also has HIGHER end devices too. And DIFFERENT devices.... slab, flip, slider landscape keyboard, full time portrait keyboard, large screen, small screen, trackball or not, faster CPU's, slower CPU's, ruggedized or normal case, etc- just about every form factor. And unlike the iPhone, most all have removable/swappable batteries, SD card capability for expansion, standard USB ports for charging, etc. Then there is the collaboration with more than one entity participating in the design of the OS and the hardware. That most of the OS is open source and well known (Linux). That the market is more open, allows refunds, apps can be loaded without the market, and doesn't require the iTunes beast. And, of course, your choice of ALL wireless providers.

    The iPhone is a nice device and has some advantages of its own (good build, tight quality control, decent dev tools, single platform (can be an advantage)), but Android has a whole LOT of advantages and is rapidly building momentum... faster than probably anyone would have expected.

    I only say this because "tivo app for ipad" now autofills in iTunes and TiVo Inc. is listed as a developer on the bottom left once you limit your search to applications. Can't be much longer!

    How can you possible assume this? There's every reason to believe both the iPad app AND HDUI make use of common underlying capability and services.

    Looks like the app will be available today or soon!! You can search in iTunes and there is a listing for "Tivo app for ipad" in the list... although it doesn't show up!

    I have been seeing that for three days.

    I am not sure what drives that autocomplete... It could be an entry in the app library and it could also be popular search results.

    I do think it is resonable to expect to see the IPAD app before christmas

    Yes, but that is not what Austin was referring too.

    Development is generally done in a three tier architecture. The Presentation Tier, the Application Tier and the Data Tier.

    For the IPAD app, the Presentation and the Application Tier are going to be independent of the TIVO architecture. They may share similar logic and design, but they will be independent.

    The Data Tier will generally be Services provided by a combination of your Local TIVO and TIVO itself.

    It has to do with a submitted app that probably isn't available or approved yet!

    If you look on the right column afrer searching, you will find a list of developers and Tivo, Inc. is listed.. so it is legitamate... not popular search results.... Those results are always something in the store, something recently removed or something coming soon!!

    I seriously doubt they will wait until AFTER Christmas.

    I doubt it is their choice. I am sure Tivo would prefer to have it out yesterday. I think it will be released the moment it is approved. My guess is that they had an official launch date that has long since past......

    The HDUI is flash. Apple has only recently started to warm to the idea of flash on Iphone or Ipad.

    I am sure the Android full browser with Flash support had something to do with that :D

    You never know when Apple rolls out the app... They don't just say it'll be approved by a certain date, so there is no way for an actual hard launch date...

    But since placeholders are showing up in the itunes store, I would say it wil be soon....

    Apple has NOT warmed up to Flash on iOS. You'll never see it. In fact, there is not a single implementation of flash on a mobile device i've seen that isn't slow, buggy, and a severe battery drain. Besides, website after website are moving to HTML5 quicker than anyone expected.

    Still waiting on this app.... I am sure there are beta testers out there.... I know you have an NDA if you are one, but can someone give an idea of when it will release?

    I am hoping before Xmas.!

    Allowing the Skyfire browser was a step in the right direction. I think there was a day where they wouldn't have allowed it.

    I still don't have 14.7 on any of my TP boxes. Didn't I read somewhere in this forum that 14.7 is a requirement for the app to work? If that is true I'll start looking for the app once I get 14.7
