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
Tivo will not ever be bigger than it is now, which says a lot about current (mis)management.
