Sean was right. You dopes were wrong. Let's review

Archived from groups: alt.video.ptv.tivo (More info?)

For months and months and months I've been posting that Tivo was
doomed without a viable HD cable product.

Ramsay supposedly backs out of a Comcast deal at the last minute
and pig headedly insists Tivo doesn't need cable.

All you Tivo Rumpswabs in this group parroted the Ramsey line that
Tivo was so wonderful it didn't need cable.

After the cable deal fell though I predicted that TIVO would not
exists in it's current form within 6 months of the NDS product hitting
the market.

Apparently Ramsay read my posts and got scared shitless. After a lame
quarterly "earnings" call where he was shown for the boob that he is
by investors everywhere the cable deal is mysteriously back on the
table.

And with my favorite cable company no less. One that I've been saying
for months has been on the cutting edge of technology and doing an
excellent job providing service.

You dillweeds scoffed at Comcast. I'm sure now you'll be singing a
different tune.

Welcome to the club.

Pretty much all the things I've been saying for months needed to
happen have happened. Ramsey blinked and cut a deal with Comcast,
the best cable company out there.

Good for him.

As Clint Eastwood once said a man's got to know his limitations.
Ramsey now knows that he could not run a succesfull company
on his own (just as I've been saying) and he's now worshiping at the
altar of Comcast.

I'll have another post soon asking for predictions from all you
geniuses. Feel free to not participate, I'll understand your need
to not get embarrased again with your wrongheaded and stupid
analysis.

    Incorrect statement # 1

    Supposedly....did you miss that word you typed?

    Proof please. All of us said this? Please link to my post. Comcast
    however, thought differently and BEGGED Tivo to license its software
    because no matter how hard they tried they could not come up with a
    working concept regardless of all the free upgrades and replacements
    they gave. It was costing them too much money. They see that Tivo
    boxes almost never break and software can be pushed rather than
    calling the box back in to 'repair it'. Comcast just could not figure
    this out.

    Six months has passed and Tivo is still around, lets call this # 2.

    Yawn, insignificant.

    Obviously you were wrong as they now realize they need the king of
    the DVR market to make them viable in that market, otherwoise they
    are just another neighborhood cable company with VOD, big whoop.

    Really, I am pretty sure it will be YOU singing the different tune.

    If you are a member I want my money back, here is your stupid card.

    >

    Not ONE of the significant things youve said have happened.

    > Ramsey blinked and cut a deal with Comcast,

    No, you have it backwards. ConCast made a lifesaving deal with the
    best DVR on the market. Tivo is to the DVR what Kleenex is to the
    Tissue and Comcast will never have that distinction.

    And Comcast finally figured out they NEED Tivo to compete.

    You really are a simpleton.

    Do you have any idea of the size and financial prospects for Comcast
    compared to Tivo?

    I didn't think so.

    As I said before, Tivo isn't even a pimple on the ass of Comcast.

    Be very wary of anybody who refers to himself in the third person.

    What a dope Sinner/Davey is. Nice picture of Mike Ramseys new boss in
    todays wall st. journal. Nice article too.

    No mention of Tivo but it wasn't a very long article.

    No time to talk about companies that amount to a pimple
    on Comcast's ass.

    Comcast's Net Income Surges
    On Cable, High-Speed Internet

    A WALL STREET JOURNAL ONLINE NEWS ROUNDUP
    April 28, 2005 8:07 a.m.

    Comcast Corp. reported its net income increased sharply on the back of
    an increase in customers for its digital-cable and high-speed Internet
    services.

    The Philadelphia-based company earned net income of $313 million, or
    14 cents a share, compared with $65 million, or three cents a share,
    in the year-earlier period.

    Revenue rose 9.3% to $5.36 billion from $4.91 billion. Operating
    income jumped 31% to $866 million from $659 million. Operating cash
    flow rose 17% to $2.03 billion from $1.73 billion.

    Comcast's board of directors also approved the repurchase of $2
    billion of its stock, the company said.

    "We are off to a great start this year," said Comcast Chairman and
    Chief Executive Officer Brian L. Roberts.

    Mr. Roberts highlighted customer growth in Comcast's digital-cable and
    high-speed Internet divisions. "Our customers are embracing a whole
    new way to watch television," he said.

    Mr. Roberts last week said the company's joint acquisition of Adelphia
    Communications with Time Warner Inc. reaffirms the cable giant's
    bullishness on the cable business.

    The company reported a 9.7% rise in cable revenue to $5.1 billion from
    $4.7 billion. It added 200,000 new digital customers in the period,
    and with more than 8.8 million subscribers, digital-cable penetration
    reached 41.1% of basic subscribers. Basic cable subscribers declined
    29,000.

    Comcast's high-speed Internet revenue rose 33% to $925 million.
    Comcast added 414,000 high-speed Internet customers to end the quarter
    with 7.4 million subscribers, representing a penetration rate of
    18.3%. Average monthly revenue per subscriber increased slightly to
    $42.81.

    For the full year, Comcast forecasts operating cash flow growth of 14%
    to 15%, up from an earlier outlook of 12%. The company backed its
    prior revenue-growth target of about 10%.

    Comcast and Time Warner Inc. announced last week they are buying the
    assets of Adelphia Communications Corp., the cable-TV company
    currently in bankruptcy protecttion, for $17.6 billion in cash and
    stock. Comcast will get 1.8 million additional subscribers.
