I hesitated before posting this (and I’m probably going to regret it) but PVRblog has posted a rumor they just received (thanks to Tom for sending it to us)…and are claiming the validity of is, at best, 25%…that Apple will be licensing Tivo for iTV.
I could believe that.Â It might explain why we haven’t seen Tivo2Go on the Mac…perhaps they’ve been developing a different application for OSx?Â Tivo also started hiring Mac programmers last summer, and, again…no Tivo2Go…so what are they working on?
Here’s the part that really raises my DOUBTS about this rumor…
the name iTV has changed to Mac Media Capsule
Ain’t no way.
“Mac Media Capsule” is just about the worst name I’ve ever heard for a device…period.Â Much less an Apple device.Â It’s only slightly worse than the name Wii…but still terrible.
There is NO WAY that Apple is renaming iTV to Mac Media Capsule.
So…there you have it…another wild Apple rumor.
With Macworld just around the corner, I doubt this will be the last one that we see…
