Advertisements Well, much like PCs, there are people who have TiVos, and people who actually make full use of them. Many TiVo owners treat their TiVos - indeed think of their TiVos - as VCRs with some added features. What many people fail to consider is that the TiVo offers a whole different paradigm for TV entertainment. It allows one to eliminate the dependency on station and network programmers and any exigency of time dependence from one's viewing. The value of time-shifting in general aside, if you ask me the very most important feature set of the Tivo consists of those utilities which eliminate the things I don't want from my consideration. Since turning on "Live TV" is virtually guaranteed to present me with that which I do not want, I'll happily stick to the NPL, which contains far, far more things I would like to watch than I would ever actually be able to watch. Why waste my time searching through mountains of mostly rotting hamburger, tripe, and wilted lettuce when for less time and trouble I can have fresh USDA Choice T-Bones, live Maine lobster, and truffles?
