I read this recently and thought of Bluetunes and their patent pending upload technology. This technology allows you to upload songs in an incredibly short amount of time. The article sates that TiVo users are unwilling to delete any shows they have (0r have not watched) and suffer guilt because of it. (Oh the agony . . .) I emailed Bluetunes founder Nick Alexander and suggested he contact TiVo. Not sure if he did, but I believe these kinds of (cloud) services could help save TiVo, and in my opinion they need saving. TiVo has recently diversified some of their offering and are definitely not afraid of technology. My favorite offering has people utilizing their cell phones to program their TiVo box.
Nick, please call TiVo!
