    I'm totally psyched about the release of the S3, and I hope it's announced ASAP.

    Hopefully, the announcement is made on the 1st, and it's available in stores on the 3rd. If not then I'd rather skip the next week and have the announcement on the 15th with availability on the 17th.

    As much as I am looking forward to it, and I can't wait to get my hands one, I don't want it released on the 10th.

    are you thinking of 9/11 :confused: Man I hope TiVo inc is not boneheaded enough to do that. It is kind of why I discounted the 12th and went with the 19th

    The 10th is a Sunday though and typically no release news comes out on Sunday

    Hasn't that already happened?

    Yes. That is what I was thinking. I don't want to see it released that week. I agree with you, and I would bet my last dime that TiVo would never do that.

    It would have to be announcement on the 8th and available on the 10th. Again, I seriously doubt this would ever happen. Besides being a bad business decision, TiVo has too much class to do that :up:

    Letter from the Editor
    August's over already?! Good thing we made it outrageously easy to catch all the season premieres, including new shows and old favorites, with new TiVo Guru Guide recommendations, queued up and ready for your instant-gratification, online-scheduling pleasure (better get that network adapter, huh?). Or, if you're picky about your premieres and only want to schedule one or two, we've listed the entire Fall TV premiere schedule in chronological order so you can do your own thing—whatever that thing may be.

    Meanwhile, keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks for a defining moment, oh yes. Watch your e-mail Inbox. Your TiVo Central screen. The twinkling eyes of your best TiVo friend.

    Coy? Me?

    P.S. This was fun: Jim Barton, the father of TiVo technology, received enthusiastic applause and a 2006 Emmy® award last week to the beat of a TiVo "Bloop." The show's producers decided to fill the Shrine Auditorium with the familiar sound effect just before the TiVo service was announced as winner. Clever, that Academy!

    TiVo Tip: Season Pass™ Alert
    What happens when the WB network merges with the UPN network? Apparently, a new network called CW is born. If you have a favorite WB or UPN show, here's how to safeguard against missing an episode during the naming transition:
    Review your Season Pass™ recordings for UPN or WB programs
    Create a TITLE WishList® search for each of those shows, entering the exact title. Use the PAUSE button for quotes to indicate exact phrase&#151;and don't worry about apostrophes. (example: "AMERICAS TOP MODEL"; "ONE TREE HILL", "EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS", "VERONICA MARS", etc.)
    Select "Auto-record"
    Select "View Upcoming Programs" to ensure the programs you want are being recorded
    If necessary, edit the Title WishList search
    Once the merger is complete (around Sept. 18), and after you ensure your CW Season Pass recordings are still appearing in your To Do List, you can delete your WishList searches. For more information on how to use WishList searches, go to Using WishList Searches.

    Bonus Tip: Superfans of said show may want to keep WishList searches, as they're an excellent way to catch specials, retrospectives, and interviews with cast members on talk shows.

    Get the TV that's good for you with TiVo KidZone Guides!

    Wondering what "TiVo Presents E/I Programming" is all about? It's a KidZone Guide dedicated to 'Educational and Informational' programming for kids—programs the broadcaster deems particularly beneficial for children, having positive effects on their social development as well as emotional and cognitive well-being. Turns out research over the past decade confirms that E/I programming can positively influence a child's readiness to start school and do well.

    What a smart idea, those TiVo KidZone Guides! Have a browse.

    Curious about the origin of E/I programming? Guidelines adopted by the FCC in 2004 required broadcasters to air E/I programming for children, ages 16 and under, for a minimum of three hours per week. You can recognize such a program by the on-screen "watermark," a uniform E/I symbol that appears throughout the duration of the show.

    9/12 isnt out of the question, not at all. In fact, Apple is planning an event on the 12th as well...

    New 23" iMac
    Merom updates for the iMac + Mac Mini
    iTunes Movie Store

    And the S3 HD TiVo from TiVo.

    Oh crap. I just ordered an imac. You mean if I had waited 10 more days I would've gotten one with a core2duo instead of a core duo? I'm not a usual user of the f-word, but f&%*!

    Hmmm, I wonder if this has anything to do with the shipping being delayed on this order until Sept. 6th. I thought it seemed odd that they shipped the ipod nano (engraved no less), the very next day, but the imac, which I purchased with all the default options, and should be just a pre-made box sitting there in the warehouse, was delayed........
