B2D and TiVo


At one point, the conversation got around to the Yankees, as I imagine often happens in NYC, and the Sales Manager said,

“Yeah, I’m going to TiVoTM the game tonight so I don’t miss it while I am taking the train home.”

I asked the group, knowingly,

“How many of you use TiVo or other Digital Video Recorders?”

Most of the hands went up.

“Would you ever go back to using VCR tape recording?”

Universal “No’s” came back.

I continued,

“That’s what backing up to disk is all about. You get the benefits of speed, faster seeking, instant playback, etc…”

You could see the lights going on in their eyes.

I love it when that happens.
