Am Tech: Apple TV to Gain DVR Functionality

     Just the other day, an Apple patent filed sometime in 2006 turned up describing how a media hub could implement live TV recording functionality and how a touch sensitive remote control could be used to interact with the device. Today, Shaw Wu of American Technology Research says Apple TV will soon incorporate Digital Video Recording technology and iPhone/iPod Touch may be used as its remote control. He goes on to say that adding this feature into Apple TV could total between $12-$15 of hardware per unit and it “could turn [Apple TV] into a billion dollar, if not multi-billion dollar business”. Wu also mentions sources who claim Sony and Apple are in final discussions to bring Blu-Ray drives to Macs.
