Advertisements I use Quick Mode VERY VERY often.. and I wish it were WAY faster... I wish there were at least 50% faster and 100% faster (maybe 75% too). I listen to basically all podcasts at 2x.. only going down to 1.5x sometimes (e.g. foreign accents). I often download shows to watch in VLC (on AppleTV nowadays, which is the most convenient way to do it) at 1.5x or 2x.. I watched a couple of episodes of The Toy Box at 2x over the weekend. I still got most of the "fun" part of the show. For something like America's Got Talent or American Idol (though I admit I have about 2 seasons of each recorded in SD unwatched), I will QuickPlay the non-performance part (fluff), and watch the main performance at regular speed -- usually. If I could 'stand' to watch scripted stuff faster than realtime, I would. The only one I do it with is SNL, instead of FFing it like I was for a while. I'll just leave it in quickmode and halfway zone out doing something else for a boring sketch.
