There are few technologies that are resisted, yet when tried, turn out to be required. DVR is one of them.
However, I am finding that what DVR did was set off an “arms race”. It is no longer enough that I be able to pause TV to grab a beer or put the kids back to bed. No. It has now become too inconvenient to even fast-forward through the commercials only to not go fast enough and then hit play juuust too late. So you have to hit rewind a couple of times.
No. That won’t do.
Now I have to buy re-run TV on DVD.
But I can’t tell you the hit of joy I get when the show fades to black signifying a commercial and I can just sit back and watch. God how I love Boston Legal.
Life is good!
