For one, contrary to what +Andy Ihnatko says, Netflix is far and away better on the AppleTV than it is on the Roku. The Roku's Netflix channel used to be decent, but they "updated" it about 6 months ago and now it's just awful. I can't for the life of me...unless I'm doing something wrong....find where I can restart a movie from the beginning. I can resume, sure, but there's no restart from the beginning. Also, with the Netflix AppleTV app, you can drill down to the list of actors staring in the movie and can instantly see a list of other movies on Netflix that also feature them. Where is the Netflix on Roku feature that has that?
It will be interesting to see how the FireTV will compare. Competition is good. Maybe it will push Roku, Apple and Google to be better...as it should.
The reason I say this is because over the past year or so listening to Andy, I've found that our "likes" and "dislikes" are totally opposite of each other.
Andy has said several times his dislike for 5 Guys burgers, Moulin Rouge, A Christmas Carol by Robert Zemeckis (which his late colleague Roger Ebert gave a full 4 stars to), The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Reeder app for iOS...among other things. And the things he likes I've found to be...wanting...namely Android (which I personally had a disastrous 7 months on), comic books and The Amazing Race.
It's gotten to the point to where I should listen to Andy in what he reviews and then do the OPPOSITE of what he suggests. I have half a mind to go watch Bing Crosby's White Christmas.
Also, I should note, this isn't an attack on Andy. He's a nice, articulate, knowledgable journalist and tech pundit. It's just that we don't see eye-to-eye on preferences. And hey, that's okay. I wouldn't have made a post about it, but I heard him on his recent Macbreak Weekly saying how much he dislikes Jimmy Fallon, while just the day before I was saying how great the new Tonight Show is. How fresh and new and different and better it is. With him railing on it I was like "OH COME ON, THAT TOO?"
