Roku for Cheep New Prices

Get RokuLooks like the Roku box has a new lower price, I’m sure this is because of the Apple TV coming out. I would still recommend Roku to any one who has Netflix over some of the other boxes. If you have a TV like the Vizio new sets that have Netflix built-in then you are only missing a few of the things Roku dose.

But I would have to say that amount and quality of Roku channels are getting bigger and better. All they relay need is a YouTube and Hulu channel and it would be a gold player. Maybe if they could add the ability to stream content from a PC with the media sharing stuff that would be sweet but Netflix has added so much more content (movies, tv shows) that it’s almost dumb to have movies and such on your computer.

So what does the pricing look like will here it goes:

Image Product Old Price New Price
Roku SD $79.99 $59.99
Roku HD Roku HD $99.99 $69.99
Roku HD-XR Roku HD-XR $129.99 $99.99

From the price standpoint and what it does I would say go all out and get the Roku HD-XR and drop one of these babies on to your TV setup.

So if you are looking to get one of these boxes or a Netflix setup go over to our Savings & Support page and help us keep the site up.

Nexus One Accessories Back-ordered Until End of November

Nexus One Car Dock
Nexus One Car Dock

Well it seems that HTC is not that interested in sending me or well anyone Nexus One accessories. The last few e-mails I have gotten from LetsTalk.com (errrrrrrrrrrrrr) are showing my order to be shipped on November 26 2010 or as they put it 11-26-2010. So that makes it back-ordered for over 3 months wow do they even want to sell this stuff or what!

I looked up on the Nexus One user support forums and it seems that no one else has gotten any orders for there Nexus One stuff yet ether so it’s not just me. This is relay too bad that we can’t get any thing from Google directly any more they had things working smooth.

So if you are looking to get a Nexus One car dock or desktop dock for your sweet sweet phone it looks like it may be a while for the earth to make some more plastic and copper so they can make this stuff.

/me Annoyed!

Testing E-Mail Posting

I am trying out new ways to add content to the site so I though I would
setup the E-Mail posting so that I can post some of the things my family
sends me in E-Mails. Last time I tried to set up a system like this each time
it checked to see if there was a message it would post already posted
messages. Hope this works!

New iPods, AppleTV and iTunes Update

Steve Jobs iPod Event 9/1/2010
Steve Jobs iPod Event 9/1/2010

Well I watched the Apple iPod update tonight and I have to say I was very disappointed. Not that I like Apple products that much to begin with. But first the good stuff.

The iPods, they looked better than the last one like they always do, but there is nothing new about them except that nano version with the touch screen. The screen on a small device is cool but I have had a few iPod nanos and they were nice to just put in your pocket and play stuff, adding a touch screen makes it more complex and doesn’t make it any better. Adding recording video to the iPod Touch is cool and I wouldn’t mind one since it’s not an iPhone, but I would rather spend my money on an Android small tablet like one of the 7 inch ones that are coming out.

iTunes update not much to say but o look they changed the icon since they never sold CDs there they thought to take that out. Must have been one of those great ideas Steve had. And other than the cover where the name of the album was is something that Windows Media Player had for a long time great idea stolen again. Almost forgot this but they added Twitter into iTunes but you can’t do anything but use it in iTunes another rip-off.

Finally they rebuilt the Apple TV to be well a Roku device with some of the extra stuff and they make more money off of the stuff you rent. Ok well they do have a very few differences, such as YouTube, and playing stuff from your device but that’s not that cool unless you have been keeping up on getting the new Apple devices. This is one of those things you even look at and say “wow that looks and sounds just like a Roku and I have had mine for over 2 years!”

So to sum up the Apple stuff for this month so we can stop talking about it. New iPods, little changes in iTunes, and a rip-off of the Ruko and it will be out soon all ready for the holidays! You can just tell how excited I am.
