iPod, iPhone to gain HDVR powers

Apple’s latest patent promises a pocketful of entertainment (or at least portable access to what passes for programming on today’s TV schedules), positing as it does possession of the ability to receive, record, playback and pump into iTunes all manner of shows broadcast on over-the-air radio or television (TV), satellite radio or TV, cable TV or music services.

Patently Apple tells us all about this new TV patent, which seems to take the radio playback and song tagging included in the 2010 iPod nano and extend it one step beyond.

What next for the iPod? A pocket TV receiver and HDVR, of course… | 9 to 5 Mac.
