do i have good timing or what?
of course, several problems remain, not the least of which is that, even if the thing is relatively cheap, we won’t have the money right away. and it doesn’t matter anyway, because my rule is to never buy first generation anything–electronics, computers, cars, whatever. they always need time to really work the kinks out based on real-world product usage.
that just gives me time to save for the second-generation implementation of the thing, which i’m sure will be around in time for christmas 2006.
in the meantime, i’ll be happy with my hd-dvr.
