I wasn't thinking of you...
I clicked through to Engadget and they're making it sound like it's a really big deal. So I read with interest figuring that there was going to be something really big going on. But there just wasn't anything all that impressive. They really should call it the Series 3a... well, except that the non-XL version is not even as good as a Series 3 in some respects.
The other thing I'm wondering about is that Tivo is right in the middle of the stories about cablecard being all but dead. Tivo is proposing a new interface between cable providers and devices, as are some others. It makes me wonder how long cablecards will be around and whether this is the time to buy a new machine that's based on them. I'm just thinking out loud here.
