So I was talking to someone the other day and I mentioned that I did not have cable. I told this person how I had gotten so used to watching television on my own time through a combination of Hulu and Boxee that I could NOT see myself ever going back to regular cable.

I also liked the fact that my current choice costs less than what cable would cost so it was a very small way to enjoy some of my favorite shows and save money at the same time.

My friend looked confused for a minute and said ‘I know you want to watch things on your own time….But you can get a DVR’.

I guess what was lost in the translation was that the DVR would cost me money because of the cable bill, which was part of my reason for not having cable.

I just shook my head and walked away.
