Om Malik’s Analysis of Tivo’s Strangeberry acquisition.

TiVo, the digital hub, powered by Strangeberry? Something like this might spur more people to set up a wireless network at home.

So what are they really building? My best guess is that Strangeberry crew, all former Sun folks, developed a piece of software that actually makes finding devices on the home networks as easy as turning on the power switch. And it is using some variant of Apple’s Rendezvous technology. I remember these guys had released some variation of Rendezvous for Java in the early days of their operation. Rendezvous is a technology which can and does work with all sort of networks – Wi-Fi, Ethernet or powerline networks.
