Advertisements Is it really just TiVo? Don't you get lots of ads for American goods & services you can't really get? I do understand your frustration. I live in Alaska and there's a ton of that stuff. TV ads for stores we don't have, "nationwide" advertised specials that turn out to not be available in AK or HI, all kinds of internet "free shipping everywhere!" offers where "everywhere" doesn't include here. And we're a US state!! I guess after 10 years I've just come to see it as one of the little annoyances/quirks of living off the beaten path and I try to be glad for the goods and services we DO have up here. Sometimes I have better luck than other times. (The unannounced $50 surcharges when I was promised "free shipping anywhere in the US" still make me mad . . . .) Maybe you can try to reach this Zen state as well?
