Apple, Google, Comcast and others have been rumoured take over partners of TiVo. A deal is never done until signatures are on the documents but there continue to be signs that something is up. The stock movement is one of those things. Another is that departure of the chief architect of some of the new advanced features. This programming whiz received something like $35 million when he sold his company to TiVo last year. Now it appears that TiVo is accepting the changes needed to take the next step. All cannot be happy when changes are made.

My family accounts are fully invested. I won't buy more TiVo but I suspect good things are ahead. Even if there is no take-over, the new system is likely to inspire visions of what is to come.
