    Apple buy Tivo?

    That's totally stupid.

    Tivo is a digital application grafted on top of an analog technology.

    Apple is all-digital.

    Apple doesn't need a DVR device;it makes more sense to go the path of Quicktime MPEG-4 downloads via an ITMS-like service to settop devices like the mac mini.

    Tivo offers absolutely nothing to bring this dream to reality.

    They have an HD version. It just costs $$$$

    Also there is nothing about TiVo that is analog anyways. The feeds from Satellite are mpeg 2 from directv.
