Interact-TV’s $899.00 Telly MC1000 box is a TiVo competitor with a difference because it’s all based around open standards like Linux and stuff. What’s more, the designers are deliberately encouraging their users to upgrade their systems with bigger hard drives, memory etc etc. Hmm, could this be a company that appears to understand the future of 21st century retailing?
‘Want more memory or that new DVD-RW drive? Go ahead! You can upgrade Telly with off-the-shelf PC components, and Telly software updates are available online.’ [via boingboing]
