And regardless of what it was called, it started in California. By the way, did you know that AOL got its start providing services for Apple?
-jason, who is running Mac OS X, has a DirectTiVo running TiVoWeb...
Mmm... not exactly. They got their start providing services for Commodore 64 users. Remember QuantumLink? That was AOL before AOL was AOL. AOL started as Quantum Computer Services, running the QuantumLink network. (I was on way back then on my C64 and my 300 baud modem. )
Apple then hired them to replace the AppleLink network (that had been run by General Electric) - Quantum's network was known as AppleLink Personal Edition. They ran AppleLink Personal Edition for a few months, before deciding to end the relationship with Apple. Once this happened, Quantum Computer Services renamed the AppleLink Personal Edition "America OnLine."
Now that I'm THOROUGHLY off topic, I'll end.
Oh - and by the way, chalk up another TiVo and Apple user... though unfortunately I have a series 1, so I can't take advantage of this latest announcement.
