Well it seems that because PCs are dying and servers aren't growing much, Intel or, in this case, Intel Media is going into the television business, acing out Apple, which may have walked away because of licensing issues or even bandwidth despite what Steve Jobs told his biographer before he died about cracking the TV code and creating an integrated TV set.
Intel's set-box will reportedly store programming and let users catch up on what they've missed when they can.
There's no indication of a launch date, or pricing or how far back a viewer can go.
It appears Intel may partner with Comcast and get Internet-based content like Netflix' streaming service that works on mobile devices; there doesn't seem to be any contracts yet.
The general manager of Intel Media, Erik Higgers, let the cat out of the bag at the D: Dive into Media conference hosted by AllThingsD.
