So you say you want to TimeShift your life? It wasn’t enough to have a VCR and TiVO? What other ways can you do it? Slashdot explores the question.
I thought at first that the story was going to be another article on a TiVo Device For Radio, which I’ve discussed in this blog before. It turns out to be much more than that, though, once you sort through the comments.
My work schedule is now 7:30 to 4:00 out of the necessity to miss the worst of the traffic. I cut out about 15-20 minutes of traffic in my commute each way by getting to the roads earlier, and I ease a lot of the frustration that traffic gave me. I complain every day about waking up so dang early, but it’s worth it, overall.
Bonus: The New York Times (free registration required) has an article on a TiVo-like radio device. I’m tempted to give it a shot. Looks like an iPod in some ways. It has some frightful drawbacks, though, like poor reception, battery consumption, and cost/recording space. Eep!
