I guess I shouldn”t feel as guilty as I do when I refer to our DishNetwork DVRs as “TiVos.”

From Wired: TiVo faces off with clones.

So I”m not the only one who thinks it”s much easier to talk about “something I have on the TiVo” rather than “something I have on the DVR.” And, as the article stresses, that”s not a good thing for TiVo. The service is on its way to becoming the Band-Aid of consumer electronics.

Interestingly, the Wired piece is yet another example of a DVR story that fails to mention DishNetwork. From what I can tell, Dish was the first satellite/cable provider to offer their own brand of DVR (and they push them pretty heavily now), but nobody seems to know they have them.
