Comment CNet author's previous article about the iPhone (Score 1) 286

Her previous article (posted the previous day, for chrissakes!) is all about an iPhone app that has some of the same permissions as the ones that are "security risks" on the Android: Good Technology boosts iPhone security controls http://news.cnet.com/8301-27080_3-20008232-245.html?tag=mncol;title This is about an app that can REMOTELY WIPE your iPhone! On an Apple, that INCREASES security. On an Android, that could REMOTELY BRICK your phone. Wow.

I'm using BeyondTV as well. I'm thinking of getting the Hauppauge HD PVR, which takes the HD component output (YPrPb) from the cable box and does H.264 compression, and streams it to your PC via USB. I've probably spent quite a bit on this machine, getting two other tuners, plus a HD HomeRun, but this solution sounds like it will work. It's another $200, but it's not tied to the cableCard monopoly, and it will work with other inputs, like an Xbox 360. Plus if I switch from Comcast to some other provider, it will still work.
