TiVo Unveils Mega, The Largest DVR It’s Ever Sold

tivo-mega-dvr-2014-09-08-01

Even with today’s cheap hard drives, most DVR boxes end up running out of space rather quickly. There’s just an abundance of (questionably intelligent) programming, and a seemingly very eager public. Deleting shows to make space for new ones is commonplace, but TiVo will have none of that. The company is now offering the TiVo Mega to customers: a giant 24TB box that can fit up to 26,000 hours of content (4,000 hours in HD)! With its 6 built-in tuners, you can record up to 5 shows while watching a sixth, all the while streaming to a host of devices, whether they’re mobiles or standalone TVs. By using a RAID 5 configuration with hot-swappable drives, you can be sure that your shows won’t disappear even if a drive does end up failing.

Owning the biggest, baddest DVR on the market won’t come cheap. The TiVo Mega is expected to be available in Q1 2015 for about $5,000.

This Star Trek Phaser Doubles As A TV Remote

star-trek-phaser

It’s one thing to buy a novelty replica of a TV prop. It’s quite another to buy a Star Trek Phaser so faithful to the original that it was made by 3D scanning the last remaining prop from the TV series. It’s also fully licensed by CBS, and doubles as a programmable infrared remote with which you can control your TV, iPod docks and many other gadgets. And when it’s not changing channels, this Phaser plays a wide range of original sound effects from the series. It also vibrates and lights up each time it’s “fired”, and features a removable side door to reveal an illuminated dilithium crystal power cell. It’s made from a matte nickel plated die cast, and comes with a museum-quality metal stand, with hidden magnetic catch. The carrying case is made from rugged ABS plastic, printed with a blank name plate ready for you to make it your own. The only thing you might have trouble doing is vaporizing rocks and alien life forms with it, but at £119.95 (roughly $200), we’d say that’s good enough.

Bathing Bad Bath Salts

bathing bad bath salts

That seems like a combination made in Hell. Bath salts are all the rage amongst the drug-consuming, face-eating scum of the Earth. Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that Breaking Bad is only three months away from returning to the tube, so it only makes sense to combine the excitement of one with the… allure of the other in a product that Walter White would surely approve of. Bathing Bad Bath Salts are “a blend of coarse and jumbo ancient salts and organic essential oils, which create a relaxing and rejuvenating bath time experience.” And if truly made in Albuquerque, New Mexico (as the label seems to indicate), we would be impressed enough to keep these around as a prop, and just not use them to even bathe in.

It’s £15 or roughly $23.

Death By Random: Game of Thrones Death Generator

GOT Death Generator

Game of Thrones is all about the action. Epic battle scenes rage every few episodes or so, with the victorious relishing the death of their adversaries in the aftermath. GOT isn’t shy when it comes to the gore or particularly violent death scenes. That said, it’s pretty apt to have a death generator based on the show, don’t you think?

Created by Vulture, the Game of Thrones Death Generator will send you to a grisly and gory death, depending on the luck of the click. Will you die by rat torture or get stabbed in the eye? Check out the generator to find out how you’ll meet your end (but beware of death-related spoilers on the generator!)

TiVo Premiere Elite Kicks Things Up A Notch

By David Ponce

Even though it’s a dying business, cable TV is still strong enough to support a robust ecosystem of devices like the quintessential PVR: TiVo. And recently the company announced the release of their top of the line machine, the TiVo Premiere Elite. It comes with a hefty 2TB hard drive and 4 (count’em) tuners, which allows you to record 4 shows simultaneously while watching a 5th! The large hard drive will let you store up to 300 hours of HD content, which is twice the amount of the next highest-end machine. What’s more (like other TiVo boxes), the Premiere Elite “offers access to streaming services like Netflix, Pandora, Hulu Plus, Blockbuster On-Demand, and Amazon Instant Video.”

As you may know, the TiVo service isn’t free and is in addition to the cost of the machine itself. So $20/month gets you the service (or a one-time $500 lifetime fee), plus $500 for the Premiere Elite… plus whatever you pay for digital cable.

Remember we said dying model?…
