Commercials and advertising are such a huge part of my life, that it almost seems a shame to use a device that’s almost specifically designed to eliminate them. Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out. I remember great jingles from my childhood, like the Oscar Mayer Wiener song, the Band-Aid song and, one I’ve remembered recently, the Cocoa Krispies song. There are so many, and I feel bad for my kids when something in the store triggers a jingle-memory and I spontaneously break into song.
Finding mistakes in commercials, and then trying to convince other people of what I was certain I had seen — without having TiVo to prove it — was frustrating. Now this device provides the evidence I need to prove that I still have a quick eye!
