I love my Tivo. You know the spiel: I don’t have to be home when the shows are on, I can stream stuff when I’m on the road, I can skip through the commericials, I’m a 21st century dude, etc. Does it get better than that?
About 15 minutes ago I was planning my evening. I thought I’d do a quick jump to my.Yahoo.com to see if there was anything I might want to grab.
Then it hit me: All the shows I care about are already in the queue. If something is a repeat, it won’t tape and if something is at a wierd time, I don’t have to track it down.
I really don’t have to do a thing. If I have a few minutes to catch something, I’ll see what Tivo has for me. If I don’t, it will be there when I’m ready.
See, the broadcast paradigm officially died for me today. I never switched over to my Yahoo because I realized that I really don’t care at all when things air. It doesn’t matter. I don’t care how many commericials they squeeze into the things. It doesn’t matter. A show “delayed” by sports or something like that doesn’t matter. Where I watch it doesn’t matter.
I’m living la Tico loca.
And, by the way, your “broadcasters”, yes, you should be really scared.
