TiVo and Netflix together

Here's an article about the new partnership with TiVo and Netflix subscribers. Basically, if you've got a newer TiVo that can stream internet content, you'll soon be able to stream movies in your Queue from Netflix that are available for instant viewing. You must be a subscriber of both services to take advantage.

I think this is a great idea for both companies. I've been intrigued to try Netflix's instant view service, but since I have an older Mac and didn't want to buy a Roku player (who needs another box in their media center) I was shut out. This will help me greatly to have more entertainment options.

Hey Madonna - I'm available

It appears that Madonna is divorcing Guy Ritchie. To this I say Madonna, I'm available. I know you're 50, but you're Madonna. I'm not talking marriage, just a quick fling since I know that you're rich and famous. But if you feel like slumming it, send me an email.

Genius - PG Porn

Here's a video that I found because one of my friends on Facebook linked me to it. It's freaking hilarious. It stars Nathan Fillion (of Firefly & Buffy fame) and Aria Giovanni (Porn Star) and is directed by James Gunn. Just plain genius and I laughed out loud.

Turn your PC into a TiVo

It appears that TiVo wants to exist in whatever form it can worldwide. I think it speaks to more things to come from this innovative company. I love my TiVo and couldn't live without it. I tried and used a cable company DVR for awhile and it's just not the same. Anyway, TiVo is making software for your PC that turns your PC into a TiVo. Maybe TiVo and Apple can start talking about a mac based TiVo. I would buy it in a heartbeat. Much more desirable than an Apple TV. Anyway, here's the article. I'm sure that this isn't earth shattering and that many people have tweaked their TiVo's in the past, but this is the first real attempt by the company to expand beyond selling TiVo boxes.
