Remember when I said TiVoToGo was launching soon? I was mostly right—it launched today. If you have a Series2 TiVo you can go to the website and download the software today to copy shows to your laptop, although the DVD burning software that will facilitate permanent archiving is still not available. (Thanks, Dave!)

Update: Wired has a preview piece up here.
TiVoToGo will be an automatic, free service upgrade for subscribers who own standalone Series2 TiVo DVRs. It will not work for subscribers owning DirecTV-TiVo satellite boxes. Also, the technology will work only with computers based on Microsoft's Windows XP or 2000 operating systems, although a version for Macintosh computers is planned, TiVo officials said.
Update: The AP has a a piece on TiVoToGo, too. As soon as any of you guys actually get the software pushed to your TiVos, let me know what you think, huh?
