The DVR is a genius invention. Never miss anything again! Skip commercials! But you got all ambitious and recorded a bunch of “edumacational” stuff didn’t you? Ambitions are good things, But you never watched it. No. You. Didn’t.
Motorola just published a huge study about the way America watches television, and it’s got some interesting data about the way they use their DVRs. Apparently, 41 per cent of the stuff they record never gets watched, which is crazy, because, apparently, 30 per cent of all of the TV watched is recorded. So we’re basically trigger happy — we’re recording more than we could ever watch.
