David Pogue of the New York Times is throwing some love TiVo's way, with a writeup of some of the new features TiVo has added over the last year or two. With what seems like a new feature added every month, it's easy to forget exactly how many things a Series2 or Series3 TiVo can do that a generic cable company PVR can't.
- Share movies you've uploaded with family and friends over their broadband-connected TiVos.

- Watch selected web programs via TiVoCast.
- Rent or buy movies from Amazon Unbox.
- Get local weather and traffic.
- Get local movie listings.

- Automatically record recommended programs from expert-picked Guru Guides.
