Ever since I installed my ReplayTV I've been observing the positive effects 
of time shifting. Activities that used to take an hour now take 30 minutes. 
It feels like a type of time travel and reminds me of taking taxis in new 

When I was living in new york I had a time/distance perception of my travel. 
It would take about 30 minutes to take the subway from grand central to wall 
street. This would vary by a few minutes but generally 30 minutes. Taking a 
cab only took about 10 minutes so I had 20 free minutes.
