Author of "The New New Thing" Reviews TiVo in New York Times

Dave Aiello wrote, "For the last few months, I have been telling friends that a TiVo personal video recorder is a must buy product. It allows you to time shift television viewing and to get more value out of your cable or direct broadcast satellite subscription."

"Michael Lewis, author of one of my favorite books of the Year 2000, The New New Thing, has written an article in the New York Times Magazine profiling TiVo and ReplayTV. Lewis believes the widespread purchase of these units by consumers is inevitable. The article discusses the many ways that this technology will change broadcasting and mass marketing to consumers. In short, TiVo and ReplayTV represent the end of broadcasting as we know it."

Dave Aiello continues, "As a result of purchasing a TiVo, we were able to watch all of the highlight programs from The Tour de France on ESPN and The Giro d'Italia on the Outdoor Living Network. Until we got TiVo and it started recording programs about cycling and mountain biking based on my profile, I thought OLN was just a channel about camping, hunting, and fishing."
