Yahoo Buys Meedio, Gains TiVo-Like Tech

SiliconBeat reports that Yahoo has purchased Meedio, a company that creates home automation software that runs on TVs, PCs, touchscreens, and wireless PDAs. The official announcement is posted on the Meedio homepage, and it shows that Yahoo bought the Meedio “team”. The team includes David Brott, Pablo Pissanetzky, Victor Koosh and Pedro Navarro. Pablo explains he “envisioned a day when it [Meedio Software] could be used as the “new browser”,” and he says that day has come. Questions are being asked on how this impacts the Yahoo – Tivo deal.
