Analysts say that TiVo–which hasn’t yet turned a profit–is likely to become a takeover target or simply wither away in the face of more aggressive competition. TiVo executives maintain that the company can survive, but analysts are doubtful. NO. No, no, no, NO. TiVo is the most wonderful thing ever invented, ask anyone who owns one. The only time I have ever had ANY problem has been if the infrared changer doesn’t change the digital cable box – but if I had my basic cable service which doesn’t require a box that wouldn’t be an issue. Even my 9 year old son loves TiVo. It MUST live on. Go buy a TiVo. Everyone. Now.
