Technology. Can't live with it, can't live without it.
Major drama recently as our Tivo-like PVR started to get the hickups. Suddenly it would freeze. You could no longer record anything and suddenly all odd numbers on the remote became unusable etc. Sent this thing in, they tested it, said they found no error and sent it back.
In the meantime we're paying for cable channels we can't watch. Still ongoing feud with the company. German law says you have to grant the company three opportunities to fix the issue then it's a new model or money back. So far no luck but that's a different story.
To be hassle free and not wanting to waste any more money by subscribing to cable channels we can't watch, we bought a new PVR that's working great (so far).
What I noticed is, whenever I record something, I hardly ever watch it. Similar to dropping the newspaper as if it was a hot potato after midnight because then it's "old news, you konw? I record something but when there's a slow evening with nothing on, I still can't bring myself to watch something I recorded on a previous day. What's up with that? It is as if I live in constant fear to miss out on something.
Anybody else feel like this or do you get to always catch up with reading your paper and watching your stuff on Tivo?
