Better and Better: Order Pizza Via TiVo


I squealed with joy when I read this (I really did. Ask the guys here at reason's DC HQ if you don't believe me): You can now order pizza from your TiVo.

From the press release:

TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVRs), and Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, have teamed up to give broadband connected TiVo subscribers the ability to order pizza for delivery or pick-up, and track delivery timing, right from their TV sets using the TiVo® service.

Tell me that this quote from Rob Weisberg, vice president of precision and print marketing at Domino's Pizza, Inc., doesn't make your heart overflow with joy at the wonders of the modern world:

"This is the first time in history that the 'on-demand' generation will be able to fully experience couch commerce by ordering pizza directly through their television set. You'll see a television ad for Domino's and you'll click 'I want it' through your remote. In about 30 minutes, your pizza will show up at your door."

Just in case you missed it, you can track your pizza from your couch.
