Windows Mobile

Windows Mobile

Microsoft officially announced their upcoming Internet Explorer 6 browser for Windows Mobile.

TiVo on your PC!



Coming Soon! Nero LiquidTV™ | TiVo® PC will allow you to have all the great features of a TiVo box (live recording, pausing, scheduling, etc. but minus the streaming over the Internet) on your Windows PC.

Some say it’s a little too late and that there are many options available already to consumers but nothing’s like the familiar TiVo interface. In fact, the interface and navigation will be the same as on TiVo boxes so it should be easy for people to learn how to work it out.

You can get a complete package including a Tuner card, software, remote control, and 1-year TiVo services subscription for $199.
