After reading TiVo, We Hardly Knew Ye – Sorry fans, but it’s destined for the ash heap of history, I couldn’t disagree more. Maybe I’m just a huge optimist, maybe I’m too much of a Tivotee … but when I hit the line, “a TiVo is difficult to set up and maintain” I knew the author was simply nuts. My best friend, who is among the biggest technophobes I know (ironic, huh?) set up her Tivo. On her own. So I *know* it’s not difficult to set up and maintain. Heck, it maintains itself! And as anyone else can vouch for, setting up a Season Pass for a show is zoom zoom fast. I set mine up for “The Weakest Link” (so I can see Ernie on the show) in under 1 minute. Click, click, set. Ha!
Some come on out of the woodwork, you other Tivotees. Let’s convince Mike to shell out the $265 for that Tivo – because I will be the first to say that Tivo rocks. It is not a glorified VCR. And once you use it, it’s hard to go back to TV without it.
Edited: Well, Mike was laid off today, so I guess it’s a good thing after all that his Tivo purchase didn’t go through yesterday. However, I still say Tivo rocks!
