    I hate these teaser things that websites seem to be doing a lot of now. Reminds me too much of the local news. A lot of hype for some stupid report just to get some hits on their site.

    9PM US Pacific time eh? So in about 20 minutes eh?

    That's 2pm my time, by the way, it's nearly 2pm on September the 12th - bloody Apple, late as usual....

    Personally, I hate it when the news comes on and says "The NWS has just issue a _______ warning, weather in 10 minutes" wtf? In 10 minutes the tornado will have already taken me to Oz, tell me now, or forget. It's like that silly tagline "Breaking News...".

    I just realized something....they say it's a review...and they never said it was an Apple product...<<hits self for reading pointless digg.com headline>>

    EDIT: It's a f***ing Tivo review...the hype is too much, and the rum inhibits my judgement...

    Don't get me wrong, i LOVE my TiVo, and the new Series 3 looks fantastic (eSATA for cryin' out loud!) but I wouldn't call it an 8.7 on the gadget richter scale!

    I just hope that they improved processing speed. My TiVo Series 2 laaaaags with menus etc.

    The industrial design of that is kinda.... ugly.

    This is JUST like that "big Nintendo announcement" last week, which turned out to be so lame, I can't even remember what it was.

    In it's any consolation, I read the blog post to mean an Apple announcement as well. The timing is just peachy! Lousy writing and fever-pitch anticipation conspired to confuse readers. I had to read the post three times!
