Shortly after I asked David to marry me, I asked him if we could get a TiVo. “Yes,” he replied. “I couldn’t justify it for just myself.” “Me neither.” Another benefit of the merger.

I’m all for open architecture, and hate the idea of buying something for $400 that will be obsolete in 18 months. I’m not the biggest Linux fan, but it has a real foothold in consumer electronics due to its small size, customizability, and free licensing. But those Free Software geeks are such bad branders. A penguin– so unexpected, so differentiating!
