Microsoft Media Center Project Manager on the Apple Front Row Challenge: Bring it On!
Over in the forums of eHomeUpgrade, User AaronD, a “project manager for Microsoft’s Media Center PVR features,” offers the following thoughts on the potential competition from an Apple based DVR.
“I always thought that Apple avoided PVR consciously. Too many parts of the experience would not be under their direct control. I’m excited to see what they come up with. It’d be good to rev up a fun rivalry.
Having worked on 3 PVR products to date (Dishplayer, UltimateTV and MCE) the amount of work required is pretty massive, and I’d be surprised if it didn’t feel more ‘v1’ than most of Apple’s debuts.”
