I have mixed feelings about whether I should get a TiVo or not. I mean, killing time is one thing, but recording time so you can kill it later is truly perverse. For example, what if you had 10 or 20 TiVos recording all the time? You'd be totally screwed.
So ideally I'd prefer to get a machine that will watch all this crap for me so I don't have to. But if you don't make something like that, I guess I'll take a TiVo.
(This entry won me a first-generation TiVo in September, 2000.)
