Am I Glad I Tossed my Tivo


Url: http://news.com.com/TiVo+tests+pop-up-style+ads...

I am not surprised that Tivo has come to Pop-up ads.  Tivo has always reminded me of the AOL of set-top boxes.  After wasting my bandwidth by pushing full 3-5 minutes ads onto my old box, I knew that the $12.95/month ransom they were getting was just wheting their whistle.  Too bad Tivo, you pioneered a good thing.  Too bad you had to get greedy.
