Mix: Apple TV hacks, YouTube rival, Vodafone, Sea cruises
The Apple TV hacking begins with one user who claims to have upgraded his unit with a 120GB hard drive, while another user has added support for DivX video files. In addition, TechRestore has posted dissection photos of an Apple TV.
To counter YouTube, News Corp. and NBC are teaming up to launch a new online video service with television and movie content from both networks. The site, which doesn’t have a name yet, will launch this summer. AOL, MSN, MySpace and Yahoo! will be “distribution partners.”
The Guardian reports: “Apple wants to secure a deal with a single pan-European network for the launch of its iPhone by the end of the year, with industry insiders suggesting Vodafone has emerged as an early front runner.”
Regent Seven Seas Cruises is now offering audio walking tours for port cities that passengers can download onto an iPod for $15. Each 90-minute tour comes with a map and features “commentary, historical context, a touch of humor and exclusive tips.”
