Edmund Lee & Adam Satariano for Bloomberg:

Apple is in negotiations to start carrying Time Warner HBO Go application on Apple TV by mid-2013, according to two people familiar with the plans.

Great, unsurprising news. But:

HBO Go is only available to customers who subscribe to the network through their cable or satellite service, and would be the first app on Apple TV that requires pay-TV authentication. There are currently HBO Go apps for the iPad and iPhone.

Same old, same old. Imagine how powerful it would be if you could buy an HBO subscription without needing the cable subscription as well? How many millions of Apple TVs would Apple sell as a result? I would bet on many millions. Which is exactly why big cable won’t allow it.

In Scandinavia you can get a HBO streaming subscription without a cable subscription: hbonordic.com

With Breaking Bad and this, AMC is quickly becoming a favorite network. I should start watching Mad Men too.

These two remotes, by Apple (left, Apple TV) and Microsoft (right, Xbox 360), do approximately the same things with a few exceptions:
The Microsoft remote uses two AA batteries that need to be replaced about every 6 months. The Apple remote uses a single CR2032 that has never needed to be replaced.
The Apple remote has 6 buttons. The Microsoft remote has 46, only 15 of which are regularly used for media playback.
The buttons on the Microsoft remote are backlit so you can see what they do in the dark. The Apple remote doesn’t have this feature because you never need to look at the buttons after the first minute of use.
The Apple remote works from nearly any position in the room with approximate line-of-sight between itself and the front of the Apple TV. The Microsoft remote has the worst reception angle of any remote I’ve ever used (supposedly 90°, ±45°). Mine starts failing consistently at about 22° right of center at a distance of 8 feet, putting it right at the bottom of their specified total radius (~44°). It won’t even work from the right half of the couch.
This is a pretty good indicator of the two companies’ design philosophies and quality goals. And this isn’t even considering the software interface that each remote is respectively controlling.

Seems a little fake, but, my God, it’s so beautiful. :)

"Warner Bros. is among the labels that are already using this system to prevent users from ripping the CD into the digital file form (MP3/WMA etc.) The technology is all about limiting how the computer sees the disc – this means that when inserted into the computer only the packaged player (on the CD) can play the music."
