TiVo-Roamio

Since most cable companies, if not all cable companies, offer DVR service, TiVo has had to get proactive to stay relevant. It appears they have done so with Roamio. Roamio is available in three different models – Roamio, Roamio Plus, and Roamio Pro – and offers viewers the ability to record four shows at once (six if you go with the Plus or Pro). With the free TiVo app, you can use Roamio to stream live TV or recorded shows to your iPad or iPhone and, if you go with the Pro, you can store up to 450 hours of HD TV. Based on features, it does seem like the Plus or the Pro are the better options, but overall the TiVo Roamio looks like a worthy adversary to any of its peers.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
