Changes await TOUR players at Pebble Beach

[]( “..never could see the cliffs so clearly because of a large cypress tree. But that tree is no longer there, wiped out by holiday storms. It should make the par 5 play easier, because any tee shot that strayed too far to the right was blocked by the tree. Players either had to go over or around it… Rain that deluged California six weeks ago also washed out a small section of the 18th fairway about 280 yards from the tee, making the landing area a little tighter. Plus, the two cypress trees replaced in the middle of the fairway were planted about 20 yards farther out than they were.”

The 18th fairway has been attacked by Mother Nature for past decade. I hope they can keep it together. It’s one of the most spectacular holes anywhere in the world.

Tivo Deathwatch @ Engadget

[PVRblog]( “Engadget has started a ‘TiVo Deathwatch’ with almost 50 comments from users. This does not bode well…”

Sorry TiVo, but we’re declaring this deathwatch until further notice. We hope you’ll seriously turn things around—you know what you need to do. We’ll be updating this post periodically to reflect new developments until TiVo either declares bankruptcy, gets acquired, or (hopefully) reports a profitable quarter.

Can’t they just get the deal with Comcast done?!?!?!?!!? I’m sick of my Comcast DVR freezing up right in the middle of recording so I end up missing half of a show. The TiVo software is so much nicer!
