Intel Is Planning A Crazy New DVR That Records EVERYTHING
Here's the latest detail on Intel's plan to assault the traditional TV business, via the WSJ:
Intel's plans include a server farm to record every piece of programming aired—local, national and international—and store it for at least three days in the "cloud." With an Intel-designed set-top box, people won't have to own DVRs or even plan to record programs
A permanently running cloud-based DVR is a pretty neat feature. It means you never have to worry about missing the start of a show, or if people start tweeting about a show, you can start it from the beginning, without missing a thing.
That's great and show thinking outside the box if you will.
imo, it will be a huge database of all programs and then they will add a search mechanism that you can search a figure (an object, a person) or a quote for easy direct access. It's like what the search engine did to the web.
CBS vs Time Warner Cable ..... CBS seems to be asking for pricing that seems to imply they have alternatives. 8-)
"The fight is on. Time Warner Cable says that tonight it will drop CBS-owned stations in New York, Los, Angeles, and Dallas as well as Showtime, TMC, Flix and Smithsonian in all of its systems. It calls CBS’ price demands “out of line and unfair.” It adds that “Switching is not the answer; sooner or later CBS will threaten others and go dark, just as they have with DISH in the past and with us today.”
