All I need now is a HD TV. But I've a few months to save so it's good. Great to hear it's finally coming. I saw Oprah raving about it years ago.

I think a set top box is all you need. (dirty?)

Hyperbole to say it's life-altering?

Notice I didn't say necessarily for the better, but decidedly different. Be careful what you wish for. ;-)

Congratulations!

Thanks, people from the Northern Hemisphere! You know, I've resisted getting cable for fear that I may never leave the house again. I see a similar future with TiVo, but if that's wrong I don't want to be right!

That's what I mean. I love TiVo, I do. No, really, I want TiVo inside me. The thing is, I thought it would expedite my television viewing, and it does, but that's not to say I watch less, because I watch SO MUCH more, just with added convenience and no commercial breaks. Not only that, but the infernal thing obeys my commands and THEN it records other things it thinks I'd like. Only it's not guessing, brotha. It KNOWS.

It's inside your head!

You will love TiVo. Can you knit and watch TV at the same time just like me mum? And if the phone rings you can answer the phone and pick up the show where you left off. Surely there's a Nobel Prise waiting for the inventor of this!

And one feature we love, just like recording TV shows on the old VCRs, after you record something -- you never have to watch it! Yes!!!!
