Media Consumer Continues to Win

I’d written about timeshifting and placeshifting in media before. TiVo had blasted the time restrictions in media consumption, although, I don’t think it has won the game, yet.  DVR technology has probably benefited cable co’s more.  And, the Slingbox is rocking the place restriction.  We’ll see how IP protection requirements will affect Sling’s development.


For the connected world (i.e. 3G coverage areas) there is now a new frontier.  Russell Beattie shares his experience with Orb’s DVREverywhere, the mobile TiVo integration system that streams one’s TiVo content to their 3G phones. (Thanks, Burc)
