The rankings of which Super Bowl commercials will be paused and watched again on TiVo will be much improved in 2009. Every year TiVo publishes a ranking of the best Super Bowl ads based on TiVo user behavior.
TiVo announced today to increase the scope of its Stop||Watch ratings service by substantially increasing the sample size from which it derives its anonymous, second-by-second audience research data from 20,000 to 100,000 TiVo subscribers.As a result of the increased sample size, the Stop||Watch ratings service now provides users with ratings data derived from a sample that is 25 times larger than what the industry is currently provided through other panel-based measurement sources. This increased sample size allows TiVo to produce stable ratings measurements across lower viewership cable networks currently unmeasured by the industry currency, including Sprout, Noggin, Planet Green, and Sleuth, to name a few.
TiVo is selling the audience measurement data on to media companies like Omnicom Media Group, CBS Corporation, The Interpublic Group and Starcom.

Deion Sanders' School Opens Despite Losing Charter
Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders' Prime Prep Academy in Fort Worth, Tex. opened this week despite its location -- in a shopping center across an adult shop -- being disapproved and losing its charter.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
