"Over the last few weeks I've been playing with a piece of
consumer electronics that has the potential to alter the way that
we think of television. Its step between the inevitable future of
on-demand television, and todays "ya better be home sunday at 8pm
tuned in to channel 11 or you'll miss The Simpsons. Although
you'd never guess it (except from the diffs on the website)
it runs Linux. The device is the TiVo, and you can click
below to read my review of whats good and whats bad about this
"The TiVo is supposed to be a Digital VCR. Instead of inserting
tapes and programming your box to capture channel 11 from 9-10, you
say program it to 'Record the X-Files'. And if you opt for a
"Season Pass", the device will record The X-Files whenever its on:
syndication on FX? The official sunday night show on Fox? It
doesn't matter: the TiVo allows you to forget what channel you're
watching and what time your show is on."
"Its also pretty useful for watching TV in real time: the device
is always recording whatever you are watching. You can
pause/slo-mo/or rewind whatever you're watching."
