The F-Stop Blues: Meedio: An Alternative to Windows Media Center Tim Coyle is out with an article on Meedio, a living room 10 foot interface type alternative to Microsoft’s Media Center Edition software. It looks damn interesting. It also looks like it’s design is pretty close to Microsoft’s Media Center Edition software itself. I wonder if Microsoft has some kind of a licensing deal with Meedio, if not it would appear that they are awfully close to crossing the line in terms of layout and design (patents and copyrights and all that stuff).
Meedio doesn’t appear to do TV directly (I’ve already got a HDTV TiVo for this though right?) but it does appear to have 200+ plugins including Skype.
