The ONLY things keeping me from jumping ship on the Apple TV is iTunes and AirPlay. I have been patiently waiting for a new ATV product that I can buy but so far no cigar. I bought the ATV1, my son gave me his ATV2 when he bought his ATV3. That’s where I stand now. No way am I going to buy an ATV3 in its current iteration.
AppleTV should have had a App store long ago!!! I have 3 Apple TV 3's. But I don't use them much. Mostly for Airplay. I have a couple ROKU 2 XS Boxes that get used all the time because of PLEX. being a cable cutter, PLEX is a huge plus. most of my Movies I've ripped and put on my NAS, trying to get then setup where Apple TV would work streaming them is a huge hassle when it's 100% automatic with Plex. I generally use the ROKU's for Netflix and Amazon Prime also along with a few other things. I got one of them Amazon Fire Sticks for $19 to screw around with. it's not that bad, but I had issues with PLEX on that device. All my Xbox 360's and Xbox one can also do PLEX just fine., but like to stick with the low power boxes.
I've been waiting for Apple to do something! NVidia is not going to sell many of these things. Put it this way, why would I buy this when I could buy a Xbox 360 for the same price with Better games, better everything and can stream from many sources??? A new Xbox $360 is $199. You don't even need a HDD to stream anything. I just don't get it.

True that. Maybe nVidia's console would have better luck with Steam on it?

At minimum, making Steam part of their console would give them access to one of the best game content stores around. But I noticed NVIDIA is trying to leverage their existing relationships with game developers. And I don't think that's the winning plan.
So they’re explicitly positioning it as something that doesn’t directly compete with the Apple TV.
I’m surprised they even bother with the wraparound alarms. No one is going to steal them.
