I hate TiVo!!!
It’s so seamless to watch new or old shows when I’m watching something and see advertisements or ads for the 11 o’clock news what use the words “tonight” or “this Friday” I have no idea when they are talking about!?! (You do realize I do love TiVo, right?)
I have the same problem with Podcasts. They’ll say tomorrow or yesterday, but you don’t know how old/new the show is. For example Adam Curry was talking about download problems with “yesterday’s podcast” but I didn’t know if I had downloaded it since I didn’t know when yesterday was; this isn’t the best example since he is pretty good at dating the files (but sometimes he records late at night and the date isn’t always what you’d expect). BTW, it did turn out I hadn’t listened to that one.
