Yahoo have announced the creation of a programme that allows users to turn their TVs into DVRs. Yahoo Go for TV lets users plug their PC into their TV via the standard video and audio connectors enabling the computer to playback and record TV.

The new service allows users to view photos from Flickr, watch Yahoo videos and listen to LAUNCHcast radio all from your favourite spot on the sofa.

This seems a pretty logical step. Google has become the world’s largest media company and Yahoo aren’t far behind. Anything that gives these companies access to the TV enables them to monopolise our work and leisure time. However, it also empowers the consumer allowing us to timeshift programming around our lives.
