Dell admits poor competition with iPod [The Macintosh News Network]
In other news, the Pope sort of admits to being catholic...

Via tech.memeorandum I saw this Study finds TiVo losing ground among DVR users. This is actually a logical consequence of some decisions TiVo made. First it went to the lowest common denominator. So its internet connection is mostly through modem, they have upgraded it to ethernet and even Wi Fi, but you have to get a new box to get those features, there is no clear upgrade path. Second, it has not leveragd the power of a network of connected computers they (TiVo) have control of. If they have done that, they could have been a force to reckon with. As it is it was almost trivial for the cbl/sat operators to push TiVo to the fringes of its own market. The competition from the computers-'come-DVRs has also been intensive. I would rather buy a Media Center PC or what I have a Mac mini with an EyeTV from El Gato. I have some great ideas for the design of such a machine, but I think it can only be done from within a cbl/sat TV provider (better if it is also an ISP).

I don't like it, I want that one...

Linux Tablet to be Released in Two Days. [Slashdot]
I really think Nokia is screwing up with the 770. It is more expensive than a PSP, with only limited functionality. Why get it instead of a PSP? I really don't see it. How did they decide to do this without a phone? Without a calendar? I think they learned the wrong lessons from the N-Gage...

What video iPod revolution?. Mashboxx founder Wayne Rosso says the studios know they need to revamp their business model--but they're not going to rush things. [CNET News.com]
Somehow, I still do not believe people want to watch videos on the go on a small screen. In that sense, the great thing about the Video iPod is that it is a Music iPod that incidentally can play videos. The studios need to revamp their business model? Maybe, but they are more threatened by iMovie and cheap DV video cams than by the Video iPod, which, for them, is just an opportunity to expand brand and try new things... As if they would!
