My new favorite toy of the week is the Replay. It’s like Tivo or Ultimate TV, you can record programs on a hard disk instead of a VCR. It’s great, I search for unusual films I haven’t seen in a while and I can save them in the middle of the night. Today while I was sleeping I was recording Mi Vida Loca. It’s about Los Angeles girl gangs in Echo Park. Saw it a few years back and wanted to check it out again.
The cool part is with a click of a button you can save it to your VCR on tape, delete it from the Replay and you’re ready to go again. They are local company called Sonic Blue who also made the RIO MP3 player. Interested to see how the DVR world shakes out.
