    DirecTV rumored to drop Tivo??

    No basis of fact at all here, but an article I came across that might be of interest:

    Wow, a double whammy: TiVo is now run by the mass media (a.k.a. "The Man") and a guy named "Hartenstein". Kiss your commercial skip goodbye.

    Pop-ups are a dead medium. Just use Mozilla (my choice), the Google toolbar, or any of a number of other 100% effective blockers. (The two I mentioned are free.)

    Spam is a lot tougher. There's no 100% solution there, but lots of things to try. Mozilla mail is one, as long as you're already downloading it. ;-)

    The Google Toolbar is spyware, why would you want to use it?

    It's not spyware, or at least no spyware organizations treat it as such. The only organization I know of that calls it spyware is "googlewatch", but that is primarily run by a bunch of rival search engines who can't make the same revenue that they used to ever since google changed the rules.

    I don't use it myself though, primarily because it isn't compatible with firebird.

    You can easily turn off the site tracking; I think it actually asked on install. Anyway, I don't use it either, because I use Mozilla; but I've installed it for other people who want or are required to stick with IE, and I turned off the tracking.
