Over at Blogcritics, Barbara Barnett has published a Technology Review of her experience using a TiVo Series3 for the past several months. She’d upgraded from the Comcast cable DVR, and as she says:I will never, ever look back. Iâ€™ve been “TiVoâ€™d.”
She highlights the features of TiVo that have made her, as a non-geek user, a TiVo convert, such as the Season Pass, the advanced search capabilities of WishLists, the Thumb Ratings and TiVo Suggestions. All of the features usually touted as making a TiVo more than just a standard DVR. She also highlights the more advanced features added by connecting the TiVo to a network, but also prosaic things like being able to undelete a program, which while simple is something most DVRs don’t provide.
It is nice to see a blog from a non-geek user about that features they really use, and why they love their TiVo. It is a chance of pace from the usual parade of geeks – myself included.
