Q. I was goofing around and set up a new user called “Japanese” and logged out and logged in the new user. I set all the preferences to Japanese language then started surfing on my Japanese Mac. Then I came across this.
Is Apple Japan selling a device like the Elgato EyeTV? The software looks so much more
Mac OS X-like with an interface setup similar to iMovie. Any ideas? I love your new page! Go Web Objects!

The link is to a product introduction. It’s a DV encoder/TV Tuner box that retails for JPY31,800 which is roughly US$270. It lets you watch TV and videos on your Mac as well as letting you record TV to your Mac.
The Eskape Labs My Video and Formac Studio dv/tv look better.
