    Rovi creating millions of tons of e-waste in 2013

    ...by prematurely discontinuing the Gemstar/TV Guide OnScreen program guide data service used by millions of perfectly good TVs and DVRs, effective April 13, 2013. With such a major loss of functionality, frustrated owners of these devices will be forced to replace them, and all these TVs and DVRs will end up as electronic waste to be melted down in China. They would have been fine for another 5-10 years had Rovi not chosen pulled the plug to cut costs. Hopefully you shareholders will see some benefit from all this needless waste and Rovi executives will at least get a sweet bonus for inconveniencing so many consumers.
