Patents Pondered: Apple Poised to Free Your TV?

Patents Pondered: Apple Poised to Free Your TV?

You're out with a friend on Wednesday night and hear that, because of the "big game", the season finale of NBC's The Office will be airing later that same night instead of the next as usual.

Panic? Try to rush home? Call your mom and beg her to record it? Hope you can download it off the torrents without getting sued into oblivion?

Nope. You just whip out your trusty iPhone, touch your way through a simple, elegant interface and -- boom! -- EDGE/Wi-Fi sync a new recording schedule back to the DVR-equipped Apple TV in your living room.

When you get home, The Office is recorded and waiting to watch on the big screen. And if you're too tired to finish watching it, you can just shift the content right back to your iPhone (or MacBook Air, or any other iTunes savvy device) and watch it on your way to work the next day.

Web App Review: iCopy

404: Firefox NOT Coming to iPhone, Sorry Kiddies

The folks at Mozilla are still fuming mad over Safari-gate. The developers behind the popular open source browser Firefox stated flatly that no efforts will be made to port Firefox to iPhone, blaming Apple's Gestapo-like restrictive software license.

So this means I can't look forward to a browser that consumes half my memory and grinds to a halt on AJAX-heavy websites? Tragic.
