You beat me to it.  Roku makes nice hardware and has some great features but the ecosystem surrounding the iOS universe trounces everything else at the moment.  Manufacturing costs are next to nothing, its a board in a plastic case.  The major components are ~ 3 years old, the R&D has long been recouped. These are words of a nervous CEO.
I'm glad I'm not the only one. At first I though you might have been associated with MacMall and didn't want to go in to details. I did way more than I should have as a customer to try and get things right. I was a sales manager in a previous life and know mistakes happen, just fix them when they do.
 Price was great for me too.  Shipping was a little flakey, took about a week to a week and a half if I remember correctly.  I didn't think any one would care but since you asked, I fell for a free Parallels 8 offer on Black Friday.  It was one of those buy it now and send in the rebate offers.  I sent it in only to have my rebate rejected with a generic letter and no explanation of what was needed to complete the rebate.  (I sent them everything that was listed in the...
 I think MP's are more "important" on the "entry level"  DSLR's.  Unless you are in to photography you don't know.  Our society is conditioned to think a higher number of anything is better.  (I'd mention our national debt but that's another topic completely. )  The pro's know and don't get caught up in all that stuff.Years ago I bought a D60 instead of the venerable D40.  I don't remember the specific feature that made me choose it over the D40 but I do remember the D40...
 You're right.  A $6,500 Nikon D4s is 16.2 Mp.  A $8,000 D3x is 24.5 MP.  Wouldn't surprise me to see the next Samsung Galaxy "whatever" advertise itself as the best camera on the market at 28 MP.  Sad thing is people (the press) will fall for it hook, line, and sinker.
I think 4K is jumping the gun a bit.  It will come but I don't think it will happen until the "6S" or "7".
 Yep, I never heard of these guys until now.  I got hosed supporting one of the so called "featured sponsors" of this site.  While the machine was slightly less than ordering direct from Apple, I got the old bait and switch as my reward.  There aren't any close "mom and pop" retailers around me that I'm aware of.  I'm willing to pay full MSRP versus supporting the slime that online retailing has become.
They've been saying that for over a year now, probably closer to two. I'm sure they're working on something, but until it's released it doesn't exist.Get a PS3 because unless they changed things a subscription is required for a PS4. The Wii U is the only subscription free console.
Good luck Amazon, hopefully this will put a little pressure on Apple to evolve the current AppleTV.
I thought I remember reading on a blog just before the release of 7.0 that the weather app was going to have an update for live temps in the icon. Am I dreaming?
