Except the lead story has a MAJOR error. He thinks TiVo still charges
$100 for HMO.

Unless they changed it, the only mention of $100 I could find was the
price of the box itself. They do however mention Shawnie boi's little
bitch, Comcast and that 1 in 100 boxes freezes during recording ;) 

How is adding the price to the cable bill an advatage? Who the hell
writes checks anymore? With electronic banking its no extra effeort to
add a payee and it doesnt cost anything extra, not even a stamp. Listing
this as an advatage is silly.

You missed it, maybe because Patrick Norton said $99. My mistake.

" There are differences, though. TiVo requires a $99 software upgrade
before it will stream photos or music. ReplayTV plays photos for
free,..."
