TiVoing Your Yahoo

announcement today in the NY Times that Yahoo will connect to TiVo's set-top boxes and enable Yahoo users to find and record programs is a no brainer (Will Time Warner do the same soon with another partner [Microsoft, perhaps?], so that I can Internet-enable my cable-box-bound digital PVR?) Inquiring minds want to know.
Now, if someone will just put the mojo together that makes your new Mobile Yahoo let you record the latest episode of "Dangerous Housewives" while sitting on the runway at LAX, then wirelessly synch it up to your video iPod so you can watch it halfway over flyover country (I can say that...I live smack in the southern middle of flyover country).
PC World's Harry McCracken points out that the news isn't completely new: ReplayTV users have long had the Web-based "MyReplay" service, and AOL users have been able to do online TiVo programming for some time...however, he goes on to point out that the find features are primitive at best, and that partnerships such as this could open up whole new channels (sorry, couldn't help myself) of integration.
