TiVo recording delete screen adverts are live


I'm still not sure how to feel about this. I understand what PVR Wire are saying in that users already pay a fee, they shouldn't have to endure extra ads. BUT, that being said, the ads are pretty non-intrusive, and have you looked at TiVo's latest numbers? They're not making money, so assuming you don't want to see the lifetime […]

Monster Cable Fires 120 People

Monster is getting a very bad rap these days, I am not sure how longer it will be before it hits the general public. With news stories of them firing 120 people, its certainly not helping the cause.  From the article: Recent layoffs at Monster Cable have led to some bad local TV press for the company, inciting one San […]
