Advertisements 'Well put. 'Very succinct. The thing is, who cares? A DVR, and especially a TiVo makes VOD almost completely moot, and iPPV is pushed 'way down the list. With nothing but an STB, they're very nearly core features, but on a TiVo they are pretty much just bells and whistles. For me personally they are a bell I'll likely never ring and a whistle I won't blow. Of course no matter what, extra features are always nice, but the fact a Model T was only available in black did not prevent millions of people buying them despite the fact the vast majority would have preferred some other color. I'm concerned a great deal more with the avenue the industry will take as it moves forward and compatibility with the technology on that avenue. The dongle makes that even more problematical.
