Today, I'm talking about my DVR. I know I'm at least 5 years late in adopting this piece of media genius but I'm not a huge TV watcher. There are only a few shows I simply must watch.
Remember those video cassettes? My VCR broke a couple of years ago and I was doing fine without any recording device until I learned last fall’s season of So You Think You Can Dance would air on Wednesday nights...church night. A quick call to my cable company and my eyes have been opened to a whole new, commercialess world.
I find myself recording shows I would never otherwise watch. If I've got 20 minutes to spare before my next commitment…well, that’s just enough time to watch last week’s episode of How I Met Your Mother!
I end up deleting a lot of shows that I realize I will never actually have time for, but, this is one technology I don’t think I will give up anytime soon. In times like this when I need some serious downtime, it's great to have a library of choices to choose from! Gotta go now. Last night's episode of The Office is awaiting me.
