Rumor: Niveus CableCARD Media Center Shipping Next Week

We often send our intern blongo to sift through various companies' dumpsters—he gets to keep whatever food he finds—but most of the time all he comes back with is a handful of useless press releases, some pens, and garlic breath. This time, however, he's discovered that Niveus may be planning to unleash their CableCARD-capable Vista HTPCs next week.

As we explored before, there hasn't been a single Vista CableCARD PC released yet, so if this is true, Niveus will be taking the crown as the first out the door. Which doesn't count for a whole lot months down the line, when better or cheaper devices are released.
