From the "I Never Thought About That Department": TiVo Losers. An interesting article in the LA Times this morning about TiVo users who recorded the "American Idol" finale Tuesday night, only to miss the show’s big finish because the live show ran nine minutes long. Unless TiVo types programmed their machines to record an extra ten minutes they didn’t get to see Jordin Sparks’ big win. Yesterday afternoon Fox issued an apology to TiVo users for allowing the two-hour show to run long.
The same thing could happen when TiVo-ing live events like the Academy Awards, sports and the like. Technology!
