TiVo, Brother, and Aspyr Rendezvous with Macs

TiVo, Brother, and Aspyr Rendezvous with Macs -- Apple made networking easier with the introduction of Rendezvous, a method of automatic discovery and connection of devices over IP networks that the company has submitted as an open-source standard. Now, other companies are starting to implement Rendezvous, starting with three announcements made last week. TiVo Series2 digital video recorders will soon be able to discover Macs and play shared music or display photos on a TiVo-equipped television, using an upcoming premium service package. Brother's HL-5070N Laser Printer boasts the capability to streamline the process of setting up and printing to local printers, and Aspyr's NASCAR Racing 2002 Season game makes it easy for multiple players to find and join games on their network.
