TiVo Series 5 Coming This Fall

WebGangsta Re:Missing Innovation (178 comments)

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong (and that's okay with me, making the world a better place)... but TiVo currently does do a search through various databases as opposed to only looking at current broadcast options, and I believe the recently announced but not yet rolled out Comcast X2 does the same thing. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/2013/06/11/comcast-new-platform-saves-shows-online/dQ5HkfFJ39IlkrMUBhZ1FO/story.html

So yeah, this suggestion is already being done or in various stages of implementation by TiVo and others.

Sci-Fi Books For Pre-Teens?

WebGangsta Re:Don't write off Heinlein so soon (1419 comments)

Heinlein's WALDO / MAGIC INC are good introductions to his work as well. I like GLORY ROAD, but I recall there may be a scene or two that are mildly inappropriate for a younger set.

Regardless, any of his "pulp fiction" early works should be fine... plus, it allows the reader to read the Future History storylines in order without realizing it so when the reader graduates to Time Enough For Love etc etc, everything should magically fall into place on the big global plotline.

TiVo Series 5 coming this fall

WebGangsta WebGangsta writes  |  about a year ago

WebGangsta (717475) writes "The rumor mill continues to grow closer and closer to reality, as The Verge is reporting the upcoming SERIES 5 TiVo will have 6 tuners, support OTA recording (an old TiVo feature being brought back), storage beyond the 2TB limit, and more.

While some would say that TiVo today is nothing more than a Patent Holder (albeit a successful one), there's still a market for a cable box that doubles as a streaming player. Is hardware the future of TiVo, or should they go and just license their software to all? And don't get us started on those "TiVo Buying Hulu" or "Apple/Google buying TiVo" rumors... that's a different Slashdot story for a different day,."
