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!
