12/17   I just got a TIVO.  I got it working without having to use a
        credit card.  Why do I need a "subscription?"
        \_ I think that's for the TV guide thingy.
           \_ what tv guide thingy?
              \_ hit the Guide button.  You get complimentary service for a
                 couple of weeks, after which point you will need to give them
                 your credit card number to subscribe.
                 \_ TV is for morons.  Read a book.
                    \_ TV isn't for morons.  There's a lot of good TV out
                       there.  Stop watching stupid sitcoms, soap operas, game
                       shows, survivor re-runs and other crap.
                       \_ Where are they showing survivor re-runs?
                        \_ TV sucks. If you watch it, you're a moron.
                           \_ Wow, that's deep.  Can I be you?  What great
                              books have you read lately?
                           \_ How do you know?
                           \_ oh yes, TV sucks; all TV-viewers are morons.  I'd
                              much rather engage in intellectual conversation
                              on the csua motd, the bastion of enlightenment.

6/9     I'm interested in Tivo, is it required to buy subscription?
        Also it is possible to record and export the AVI/MPG file?
        \_ No subscription is required. Not sure about exporting the
           file, though they do let you add a hard drive, so there
           has got to be a way to move files around that way. Let
           me know what you discover.

3/7     Does anyone else think the iPad3 isn't really that much better
        than the iPad2?  I don't really understand the hype.
        \_ 5MP camera?  My 1-yr-old Android phone has a 8MP auto-focus camera
           (plus a 1MP focus-free one on the front.)
              \_ The iPad camera seems like a joke to me.  The iPad is just
                 to big to be useful for taking pictures.  Maybe it makes
