The DVR is a genius invention. Never miss anything again! Skip commercials! But you got all ambitious and recorded a bunch of "edumacational" stuff didn't you? Ambitions are good things, But you never watched it. No. You. Didn't.
Motorola just published a huge study about the way America watches television, and it's got some interesting data about the way we use our DVRs. Apparently, 41-percent of the stuff we record never gets watched, which is crazy because, apparently, 30-percent of all of the TV watched is recorded. So basically we're trigger happy—we're recording more than we could ever watch.
