Was surprised to hear, earlier today (via @siracusa) that TiVo is abandoning hardware, in favor of becoming a software-only company. To that end, they're getting rid of most of their hardware engineers.
I'm not sure if I'm more surprised by that change of strategy, or by the fact that "most of" means five.
Good luck to those five, although I'm sure someone will want to hire them. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few companies would be happy to hire all five together. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens with the company, from here on out.
