    The most recent Radio World magazine (5/22/02) contains an article by Mike Starling, VP for engineering and operations at National Public Radio, talking about the potential of digital radio. Sadly, the article is not posted on RW's website, but here are a few brief excerpts:

    "TiVo is a pleasing example of an early media prosumption* device. (Caution: evangelist at work.) ... TiVo has been the best media device I've purchased to date."

    *Prosumption: the act of consumers producing their own high quality goods with the help of technology - Alvin and Heidi Toffler.

    He then describes the shows he has Season Passes for, how he never misses a program to take a phone call, how he captures classic movies late at night, etc.

    "The problem is, I've become an increasingly frustrated radio listener. TiVo users routinely lament the lack of a radio version."

    He goes on to propose the radio equivalent of a TiVo. Pretty neat mention, considering the source.

    He also praises the radio station I work for in another part of the same column, but that's neither here nor there. :)

    There was a mention of it on Wednesday's Simpsons by the ship guy "Yar, I have a Tivo full of unwatched (can'tremembernameofshow)'s!" when Homer is rallying support for himself against Fat Tony and his gangsters.

    When Dave was interviewing the latest Survivor winner this past week, she asked him if he watched any of the episodes and he replied with something like "I have them all TiVoed."

    Just received the new Ethan Allen catalog - the one introducing the Townhouse collection. On page 12, in the picture featuring the entertainment center, there is a Series 2 tivo just above the tv.

    Tivo was the subject of a segment on NPR this weekend. They were talking about the issue of skipping commercials and whether it is considered stealing. Can anyone find a link to the radio program?

    Check this out...it seems as if there is a Sony SVR-2000 TiVo on the left side of the cabinet. Looks like Ethan Allen has quite a few pics with TiVo in it. :)

    Like FedEx, TiVo rocks.

    UPS is more like a VCR.

    Matthew Lillard, who played Shaggy in the new Scooby-Doo movie was on Jay leno last night (6/19). He was talking about how much he enjoyed watching the USA Soccer team play in the World Cup. Jay asked how he could stay up that late and Mathew went into a long endorsement of TiVo and how it is the greatest invention since television. He said he loves his TiVo, but it was on the blink. Jay, who must also own a TiVo, told him to unplug it and plug it back in again. It was amazing how much time was devoted talking about TiVo.

    It was a great plug for TiVo - was anyone at TiVo aware that he was going to do that? You couldn't have run a better ad.

    If you have access to the show last night, you should watch it.

    FedEx is okay, but FedEx Ground rocks. Where else can I get a 45 pound 4.5 cu. ft. box shipped and insured from Texas to Florida 5 days before X-mas for under $15? Yup. FedEx Ground.

    Where else can you buy a case of wine and ask the dealer to ship it from Houston to Austin and have it never arrive? On inquiry, weeks later, FedEx Ground seems to think it's illegal to ship wine within Texas when a licensed dealer does it. :confused:

    Many assurances later that the dealer will resend by another carrier, the wine never returned. Several months later, after the weather had warmed and I feared for the worst on the missing wine, I bought another case and personally delivered it to Austin.

    TechTV's Screensavers is having a Gateway PC giveaway where they call a different person everyday and ask them a question about the show, if the person answers correctly they win. Last night they called a lady in GA who when they asked if she was watching the show said, "Well, I missed the first ten minutes because I was out picking up dinner. I have TiVo though so I was able to catch up through the commercials."
    I thought this was so cool because that's what TiVo is all about.

    BTW, she won the PC. The question was, "Who is Matthew Lillard playing in the Scooby-Doo movie?" :rolleyes:
    She probably would have won without TiVo. :D

    A sports radio show is Dallas, The Ticket references TiVo all the time. There is so much going on in sports and its hard to keep up, especially now with the world cup. They seem to always being saying "I TiVo'd it and can't wait to watch it..." etc.

    There's also a guy here at work that has the TiVo logo in the back window of his car...now I know what he's talking about. :)

    Pretty cool.

    Sorry I missed it. A search of NPR's website found some stories, but nothing that recent.

    What program was it on and what date?
