I just LOVE stories like this. Makes me feel vindicated in my Tivo-centric sedentary lifestyle.
According to a recent survey, 70% of DVR users say they can’t live without it. They go on to say that among technology gadgets, it is ranked second in importance only to the mobile phone. (I would mention that the company that conducted the survey creates the technologies necessary to deliver digital content to set top boxes and DVRs. Kind of like the Egg Board revealing that, gasp!, eggs are good for you! I said I WOULD mention it, but I’m not going to. No, I am not going let a conflict of interest get in the way of vindicating my nightly entertainment ritual. I will only cite surveys that already echo what I know in my heart to be true.)
60% of DVR owners with a partner felt it improved their relationships since it eliminated fights over what to watch, and exposed the other one to new programs. See, honey, “American Chopper” IS great, isn’t it?
Ah, Tivo. You’ll never abandon me.
