Actually, you changed the meaning. Ask one of your teachers to show you why they're different. It would be worth your time, and will help you when you are older.Fixed Your Post
A valid economic point. However this is an economic indicator of a company in it's final days. You can never grow a business with this mentality. For example, I would never, ever ever ever recommend a Tivo to anyone who does not live in New York City or L.A., or anyone who does not use Windows XP, etc. Tivo's CEO is systematically reducing the number of people who will find Tivo competitive with other products. If you think Tivo will always support YOU, I think you're naive.is the goodwill of providing a money losing (to TiVo) service to TiVo worth the total of lost revenue. Bottom line
To you, perhaps. There is nuance in my statement. I can see how a few people could see these statements as contradictory, however they are not. As a general economic principle, you obviously don't want to have ANY customers which cost you money. However, in the big picture, you usually do, and will. Apparently ZioTivo corporation would not install any wheelchair ramps. They cost money, ya know.that is just silly and taints all the rest of the post that follows from it
Again, your youth is showing. You have badly misread. To spell it out: what I'm saying is that Tivo has already done irreparable damage to it's market share by cutting these phone lines. People in these areas know Tivo doesn't care about them, and I don't think they will every get these customers back. I don't believe adding lines will add to Tivo's growth. I think the downward spiral has begun, and will continue.Your claim that suddenly if they reoffer extensive phone coverage again that it will magically lead to growth is a common econ 101 mistake.
