So Many Announcements, So Little Time
So I’m not at CES standing on long taxi lines and fighting with cantankerous Wi-Fi connections to get anything done. Nor am I in San Francisco getting ready for the MacWorld Expo and the Steve Jobs keynote tomorrow. But I am watching announcements from both here in New York and there is much for a Mac-head to like.
Tivo-To-Go for the Mac
Roxio, the people behind Toast, have added Tivo support to Toast 8 Titanium. Long an oversight on the part of Tivo, $99 for Toast 8 gets you all you need to transfer your Tivo’ed shows to your Mac, burn them to a DVD, or move them to an iPod or PSP.
Buffalo Technology’s Mac-Friendly NAS
Buffalo unveiled LinkStation Live, a consumer-level network attached storage product, that works with Macs starting with Mac OS 8.6 and later. It comes in capacities of 25 to 750 Gigabytes.
Netgear’s Latest Skype Phone
While not specifically geared toward Mac users – because it doesn’t require any particular type of computer – Mac users who also like Skype may want to have a look at Netgear’s latest phone, the SPD-200D. It’s a fully functional DECT cordless phone with a self-contained Skype client as well. Connect it to your phone line and to your home network. It sounds a lot like the one of the iPhone models which Linksys made so much noise about late last year.
More as I see them.
