    TiVo Users Could Get Pop-Up Ads
    I remember a past thread about this and seeing it talked about on TV today. I guess it started yesterday:

    The Adwhores just won't stop.

    One of the first promises of cable was little to no advertising, as the customer is paying a premium price for the programming, instead of the advertisers. Now they not only have ads, but they have ads for ads.

    How long will it be before Mr. Branson manages to get "Virgin.com" embossed on the moon in 3-mile-high letters?

    It's quite brilliant actually... the ads will only be shown when you fast forward. You still dont have to sit and wait through ads. The ad will dissappear when you are ready to watch again. If they were to pop up during a show, then that would be a different story, but in this case it's really not that bad... IMO.
