A step forward for remote DVR

It seems that the US supreme court has ruled that services offering remote digital video recording are legal. This Wall Street Journal article gives more details of their decision.

This is a significant step forward both for consumers and for the planet. Getting rid of internal hard disks will lower power consumption in homes, increase the reliability of set-top boxes and lower their cost, as well as decreasing the volume of waste electronic equipment, amongst other benefits.

Let’s hope that the US decision leads to Europe making a similar ruling soon!
