    now you just use it to build a small fire to keep you warm as you stare at the flames inside the busted screen.

    Never used the Amazon thing, but the latest AppleTV has blown away my Chromestick and Roku boxes. The only downside is that Amazon Prime isn't available on the AppleTV.

    Apple TV has streaming of music and video from your pc. The only downside is the video has to be mp4.

    its kind of dumb of amazon to shun appletv when the people who buy it are far more likely to impulse buy a prime subscription regardless of the cost than are those who are only concerned with how cheap they can get a chromestick or firestick.

    I have an android phone, am ditching iTunes and converting my huge music library to amazon cloud. I also have a tablet. Really tired of Apple's bullshit.

    Yeah I can kludge it many different ways but it's just not worth the effort since at least 80% of the stuff Amaxon has is also available on Netflix, and that which isn't I can get many other ways if I want. I can wait for Jeff to figure it out (which is bound to happen as soon as the mass exodus from AWS picks up speed).
