More US Homes Have Outhouses Than TiVos

from the and-this-proves...-absolutely-nothing dept

Add this one to the list of absolutely useless statistics. The good folks over at AdAge want you to know that more US homes have outhouses than TiVos. It’s a nice sound statistic, but it doesn’t mean anything. We’re talking about two completely unrelated things that have nothing to do with each other. Trend-wise, you would think that outhouses are declining while TiVo has gone from nothing to 500,000 in not too many years. Besides, as the article points out, many companies are looking to build TiVo and TiVo-like technology into other set top devices. Just because TiVo itself doesn’t sell you the box, it doesn’t mean the concept won’t catch on.
