During 2013 swedish cable provider Com Hem launched the american TV service Tivo in Sweden. The commercials for the service runs frequently and it is presented as something quiet new, fresh and some what unique.  But really, is it?

While Tivo and other Digital video recorder services (DVRs) have become popular devices with consumers who want to control their television viewing, consumers on the contrary in growing amounts prefers online streaming services that make it possible for viewers to get their entertainment fix more easily on more devices than ever.

Resent data from Forrester foretells the rise of online viewing to displace the DVR for time-shifted viewing, a clear signal to Com Hem and other providers to adjust to new technologies and business practices.


In a recent post I asked if Apple had lost the edge on mobility or if they would put the user perspective back in focus. Said and done! Yesterdays show at #WWDC13 gave little doubt that Apple yet again has taken a firm grip and a lead on design and user perspective on their mobile platform, iOS.

However, is a screen cluttered with apps cutting edge one may ask? Are not development actually leaning towards a new breed of apps that are situation and/or geo sensitive? Called upon when there is a demand, either manually or based upon user behavior or position? Around the corner apps will interact with us, not the other way around.

That however might be something further down the road and in the mean time I for one will enjoy the new iOS 7.
