TiVo and PayPal let you buy stuff using your remote

13 Jun


Those late-night adverts for a steam-powered ab-crunching bagel toaster (just $400, plus $99 postage and packing!) will soon be much harder to resist, thanks to TiVo. The DVR maker has teamed up withPayPal to enable you to purchase goods with your remote control during the commercial. A global financial meltdown will probably ensue just as soon as the company can get compatible adverts developed, currently slated to begin airing during this year’s fall TV season.

Update: According to PayPal, it’s also “exploring” opportunities with Comcast, although discussions are still in early stages.
