TiVo Partners With YouTube

TiVo owners (we’re now in that circle, since our ReplayTV died) listen up: you will soon be able to watch YouTube content on your TV, via your TiVo. Oh, boy – cute cat parade!

AppleTV incorporated YouTube content in January, but Mac and iPod owners are still S.O.L. when it comes to Amazon’s UnBox (although TiVo folks can watch UnBox rentals). This is what happens in a world without standards, folks: corporations fight over a small pie, rather than competing on merit for parts of a much larger pie. C’est la vie, unfortunately. It merely postpones the inevitable, as the typewriter, railroad and telephone firms learned a hundred or so years ago.
