A new survey, commissioned by conditional access firm NDS Ltd. , finds that digital video recorders (DVRs) increase household harmony, improve television watching, and are among the devices that users increasingly find they "cannot live without."
The survey, which was conducted by U.K. firm Consumer Analysis Ltd. over four countries, aimed to see how consumers used their DVRs. What the survey overwhelmingly found was that once consumers have used a DVR, they don't want to go without.
According to the report (the full text of which can be found here), the DVR was noted as the "second-most indispensable item of technology, second only to the mobile phone," and that "the vast majority of people internationally with access to a DVR say that they could not live without it."

I have decided that I will forgo food for my DVR!
You upset - you have been a bit of a contrarian on some of the boards lately. Although the "news" lately has taken a cue from politics and has had plenty of spin.
Like the Ciena thing....macroeconomic uncertainty? Really? They are going to miss by 33% when oil prices are down and housing sales (at the new lower prices) are beginning to pick up. Also factory durable goods orders were up today!
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial Ė and often most challenging Ė is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company ó Tribold ó from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
