Well, that may be an overstatement but I do think that as technology changes, survivors will learn to adapt with it. And if that means sponsors creating and showing better commercials, it sounds like a win/win situation to me.

Of course the nets would rather pass a law prohibiting commerciakl skip as bad for the industry. They are stuck in a 50s mentality:).

What the industry has heartburn over is not the Skip function like the 501, but the commercial Zap like the new Sonic Blue Replay units have the ability to do. At least with the 501 we have to physically and intentionally skip past commercials where the Sonic Blue will due it automatically.
