Microsoft, in a clever move, located an “I’m a PC” recording kiosk outside an Apple Store in Birmingham, England. By the way, if you really are a PC, you can upload a photo or video online and you might find yourself in one of their commercials. The company has already selected several of them in ads that are airing on network TV and are part of a $300 million advertising campaign. We’re all for any idea that doesn’t feature Gates and Seinfeld.

Netflix has been busy, busy, busy. We already knew that Netflix will be available for Macs by the end of the year and on Xbox Live for Gold members next month, and now they have announced that they are adding TiVo as a partner that already includes LG, Microsoft and Samsung. You will be able to receive movies on your TiVo Series3, TiVo HD or TiVo HD XL. Testing has already begun and the service should be available to all by December.

TiVo announced today that TivoToGo would be available for Macs through Roxio’s Toast 8 program. This will finally allow Mac users to pull down their TiVo content to their Macs, though they have to pay $69.99 for the privilege (and that’s after a $30 instant rebate for a limited time.) As a regular user of the PC version of TivoToGo, I find value in it, but I’m not sure I’d be quick to part with $70 so easily. Oh, and it only works with Series 2 since the Series 3 has restrictions on file transfer because of the CableCard compatibility.
It’s available now, so have at it Mac-users!
