**Video Details of Apple iTiVo Revealed** -- Based on unconfirmed

but reliable reports from within Apple, the company is planning to

release its own digital video recorder (DVR) device, based on

technology licensed from TiVo, Inc. (see "TiVo: Freedom Through

Time-Shifting" in TidBITS-594_). Tentatively dubbed "iTiVo," the

device adds television viewing to Apple's digital hub concept by

enabling owners to record television programs to the iTiVo's

massive 160 GB hard disk, play the programming back at the their

leisure, and transfer shows to a FireWire-connected Mac as

QuickTime movies - ideal for PowerBook and iBook owners wanting to

watch TV on the go. Although early reports suggest that Apple

ported the TiVo's Linux-based software to run under Mac OS X,

leaked video footage of the device in use suggests that Apple has

changed little with the existing TiVo software (much the way

Handspring and Sony use slightly modified versions of the Palm

OS). Technical specifications remain sketchy, but - at least based

on the video linked below - the iTiVo appears to support memory

and hard disk upgrades, AirPort access (for setting recording

options from your Mac instead of relying on the included remote

control), and Apple's innovative industrial design. [JLC]
