Will the MOAB (Mother Of all AdBlockers) finally kill advertising?

As for TV ads, the wife desperately does all she can to skip over them (via TiVo)

I'm sure you're aware that Tivo tracks everything you watch and record, in order to "show you more relevant ads (both on TiVo products and on third-party websites)." From their privacy policy:

Information we automatically collect may include, for example, data about your viewing behavior (such as how you use, watch, record, rate and interact with content accessed on or through TiVo products), device (such as model number, software versions, and unique device identifiers), location (such as GPS data, zip code, and time zone), and cable service (such as cable provider and cable channels).

There is no escape.
