The last thing I need is something that enables me to watch *even* *more* television. Even if I'm watching television "smarter" (as my Tivo-Capable friends call it), I don't want a machine going out and finding things it thinks I'll like to watch because it will probably be right.
Besides, we have "sub-basic" cable (broadcast stations, cable access, home shopping and WGN) so getting TiVo would require more channels. And then the TiVo would fill up with hours and hours and hours of "What Not To Wear While You Were Out Trading Spaces to Flip That House for Curb Appeal". And then those shows would be available all the time. And then we'd have to watch them.
I'll pass on the TiVo, thank you very much.
