I think Prime customers w/o AppleTV or Roku would appreciate a discounted price - especially just after the subscription bump. OTOH, even as a Prime family and happy users we don't need another box in the entertainment center that adds little beyond our existing AppleTV. And they're all better than my incompetent Samsung so-called smart TV. Which I bought because of pixel quality and cpu for the price. Their idea of OS and software is years out of date.
Porting to Android means deciding which Android to port to. Most Android stk's won't scale from device to device the way iOS does. Back up and look at the whole picture.

Understand the TIMES cultural history. Their hatred for Apple as a long-time symbol of counter-culture is only surpassed by Cold Warrior hatred of China. It's a twofer for editorial policy.
Childish is as childish does. Upper middle-class brats.
Island Hermit should revisit what corporate purchases are made and by whom. Google's purchases in recent times are greater than the sum of the next five tech companies - including Apple.
Why pay attention to ANY tech analysis from Wells Fargo?
There are beaucoup Americans whose interest in life and work, creativity extends beyond national boundaries.  There's a skill called "reading" that aids the endeavor.
