It isn't just MS, though.....If you look around the forum, there have to be about 8 different threads mentioning some sort of bad press. Several of them point to the same article, but there have been several things this week.
Interesting timing, don't you think? Let's see:
1. DirectTV/Echo* merger is denied
2. DirecTV changes their website to include a WHOLE BUNCH of new stuff about their "new" DirecTV DVR service powered by TiVo
3. Some Circuit Cities are refusing to pre-order the new DirectTiVo because there have been too many pre-ordered already
And now a rash of articles about the demise of TiVo......
You do the math!....IF it looks like FUD, walks like FUD, smells like FUD...well, by golly, it must be FUD!
With DirecTV Solidly behind TiVo with the new box and promoting it very boldly on their website (and soon, presumably, on the phone and billing statements), TiVo will be around for a while. And I expect that after this Christmas, that Ramsey will be reporting that they are finally in the Black (their projection was 2003 to be in the Black, and I suspect they are going to meet that deadline)
TiVo has forever changed the way I view TV!
