There have been some controversial reports these past couple of
days; for instance, did you hear about the woman who broke her nose at an
Apple store and is suing Apple for $1 million? Or how about the high school
student who was expelled for tweeting a swear word? Did those two things
really just happen? Don't worry I'm not here to talk about those news items; instead
I'll talk about something you might find more helpful.
For those who are curious or looking into purchasing a streaming-media
device and are a bit overwhelmed by all the choices, don't worry: CNET Executive
Editor John Falcone's blog post, "Which streaming media device is right for
you?" is here to help. He offers a great rundown of these streaming
devices, including the Roku box, Blu-ray players, and gaming consoles that offer this
feature; how much they cost; and the compatible services. But what
I liked most was his breakdown of who shouldn't buy a streaming-media device. In
addition to his informative blog, your fellow community members have already started
to comment on which devices they use and what they don't like or like about them,
so it's a great way to get some more opinions on the matter.
If you already own one of these devices, or are thinking of getting one, or just
have a strong opinion, don't be shy. Join the conversation and tell us your thoughts
on streaming-media devices.
