TiVo premiere DVRs turn up for pre-order packing 500GB

I'm firmly in the camp that you can never have enough storage inside your DVR. With the often miniscule price difference between hard drives with significant capacity differences, I think 500 GB should be the minimum. My junk DirecTV DVR only has 30 GB of storage space.

Why I Don’t Want to Imagine A World Without A DVR

Why I Don’t Want to Imagine A World Without A DVR

Over the past several weeks, I haven’t had much time to sit in front of my television when my favorite shows come on. I’ve either been out of the house, working, or doing something that wouldn’t allow me to watch anything live.

Luckily, though, I accessed my favorite shows on my DVR and TiVo. Whenever I had a chance to check out an episode, I did. And when I realized that what I was watching was really not worth it, I deleted it and moved on. Best of all, I didn’t have to watch a single commercial.

Analysts flock to advise Apple: Tarry on iPad 3 and buy TiVo

A change of CEO has apparently invited a flurry of advice aimed at Apple, suggesting new chief Tim Cook should buy TiVo, create multiple iPhone sizes and be in "no rush" to launch the iPad 3. Although Steve Jobs' replacement hasn't actually asked for suggestions for Apple's strategy, that hasn't stopped J.P. Morgan analysts from pointing out that the Cupertino company can afford to take its time with the third-gen iPad, Benzinga reports, since rivals are still struggling to compete.
