What: TiVo Series 3
Where: TiVo Community Store
When: Until Sunday
How: Code word TCDEAL
Why: Because $680 is better than $799
Who: 99.9% of sane consumers
What: Tivo Series 3
Where: Every freakin electronics store known to man
When: One year from now
How: Six ways from Sunday
Why: Because $680 is hardly a deal. It'll be $250 in no time fast. And you don't feel like being the schlub who keeps TiVo afloat because they can't figure out how to do it without gouging the gullible.
Seriously, my hacked 1st generation TiVo does everything I need it to and it still has more space than this thing does. And I have no need for HDTV support so this thing has no compelling features for me.
