ALVISO, Calif. & SEATTLE, Feb 07, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ:TIVO), the creator of and a leader in television
services for digital video recorders (DVRs), and Amazon.com
(NASDAQ:AMZN) today announced "Amazon Unbox on TiVo," a
soon-to-be-launched service feature that will provide TiVo subscribers
with the ability to rent and purchase movies and television shows from
leading studios and networks including CBS, Fox Entertainment Group,
Lionsgate, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios Home Entertainment
and Warner Bros. Entertainment. Amazon Unbox on TiVo is currently in
beta testing among a select group of TiVo subscribers and will be
available soon to more than 1.5 million broadband-ready TiVo boxes.

The Amazon Unbox video download service, which launched in September
2006, offers thousands of movies, television shows and other videos
for download to PCs and any Windows Media Video-compatible portable
device. Now, in addition to PCs and portable devices, movies and
television shows will be available to download directly to a
customer's TiVo box for playback on their television set. This is the
first service that uniquely allows for downloadable broadband video to
be integrated with programming recorded from TV so the consumer can
easily navigate all viewing options.

2. Amazon.com Research Service for Office 2003

I trying to find the olutiondescribed in a joint Microsoft-Amazon press
release issued October 7, 2003 and available at
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

According to the release, the free download was to be available ater this
[2003] fall in the Office Marketplace
( http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ), but I can find it there or
on the Amazon Web Services site. The only recent and relevant information
seems to be at:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/

But that not a olutionfor those of us who just want to make use of
this Research Service from within Office 2003. And no one at MSDN seems to
know anything about the solution advertised in the press release.

Can anyone provide an update on the status of this project?
