Eli Achieves Sentience

“So I press Tivo Man and that brings up the menu. Then I do ‘Now Playing’ and press select. Then I find ‘Wow Wow Wubzy’. Then I press select. Then I pick a show and press play.”

It occurs to me that Eli will never know a time when you couldn’t choose what TV show you wanted to watch when, or when you couldn’t pause and rewind TV. He also is used to the idea that you can listen to whatever songs you want anywhere in the house, or even if you’re riding in the car. And for him, phones aren’t things that are fixed in place.
