APPLE TO BUY TIVO?

APPLE TO BUY TIVO?

TiVo Inc. shares jumped more than 17 percent on Wednesday, fueled by speculation that Apple Computer Inc. might make a try to buy the digital video recorder maker, analysts said.

Very interesting... Considering APPLE just launched its new MAC MINI, which many analysts believe is APPLE's "trojan horse" to get into the living room. This would be a nice pick-up. TIVO has great brand recognition here in the Bay Area and I absolutely love it! Great interface, great technology. They just can't seem to get enough subscribers to keep their standalone business going. An APPLE buyout would keep the TIVO technology going and attach a major brand to help promote the pioneer of the PVR. I'm rooting for this buyout...
