Existing TiVo lifetime subscribers can transfer their subscription to a new “Series 3” HD box. This is an incredibly smart move by TiVo — A tasty carrot to encourage their existing customers to upgrade to the new hardware while it’s still full price.
Apple’s forthcoming hardware to stream music/video/photos over WiFi from your PC to your TV and Stereo. My uneducated bet: It’ll also stream music wirelessly (over Bluetooth, probably) from an iPod that’ll be launched in January.
This is the security guard at the offices in Copley Place.
Joy works there, and I was going to visit her. This guard asked for my ID, and when I gave her my driver's license, she started typing all the information from it (license number, home address, date of birth) into her computer. I complained, asked about privacy policies, was refused any explanation for what they might do with my data, demanded my ID back, and I was refused entry, so Joy came down to meet me.
While I was waiting for Joy, I took a photo of the guard just to piss her off more. (I actually turned the flash on my cellphone on, just so it was completely clear what I was doing).
Yes, I am a smartarse.
I’m dicking around with SixApart’s new Vox service. Go subscribe there if you want to see me answer memes.
