Cobb has created a comic strip that should give all Tivo owners a good chuckle. Every time I demonstrated ours to friends or family the conversation would be the same:
Me: "It's great! You can pause live TV, and when you come back you can skip commercials!"
Them: "Wow. Can you skip this commercial?"
Me: "No, this is still live TV. We can't skip over to a part that hasn't been broadcast yet."
Them: "Hmpf." Followed by a "wow, what a useless piece of crap" look.
