I’m already standing in line for an Apple DVR

This patent appli­ca­tion by Apple regard­ing their research into dig­i­tal video recorder (DVR) tech­nolo­gies has me sali­vat­ing. If you know me at all, you know how much I love my TiVo. And yet, were Apple to build a DVR, I would hap­pi­ly back over my TiVo on the way to the near­est Apple Store. I’m just say­ing. In case Apple is lis­ten­ing.
