My roommate got a TiVo

My roommate got a TiVo last night (only $99 after rebate at Circuit City). TV. TiVo! Makin’ copies of your favorite TV shows. TiVorino, recording while you sleep. TiVo!

I heard that TiVo is having trouble selling their product to people…they’ve only got a user base of ~50,000 (and I think I know most of them). This strikes me as a little odd, considering how damn useful and cool the product is (you’re hooked on TiVo after using it for about, oh, 12 seconds).
