    Was talking to a Firedog techie today and he said he had heard Tivo was going out of buisiness, and would be no longer by 2010. Anybody else hear this?
    Thanks.

    The way that Circus City is going lately, they're more likely to be out of business by 2010 than TiVo is. What nonsense...

    If you happen to have the name and contact info for that Firedog techie, please do forward it to me. I'd be happy to correct his information personally.

    Thanks,

    Maybe the firedog techie heard that the stores were no longer going to carry Tivos and from that, assumed that Tivo was going out of business.

    Maybe that why the stock went up 8% today, by 2010 you will not be able to get TiVo stock anymore and people want collect it now while they can.

    It's so silly.

    Companies announce that they are going out of business effective tomorrow. Maybe, effective Decmber 31.

    But to say "We're going out of business in 3 years?"

    Silly.
