What you wish for is not only against the whole Apple philosophy, but as well against any current big company. They want to spend your time and money with their products and their services only...

It's true for Apple as well for Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Facebook, etc... It's a matter of eco system.

Roku being the standard vs. the Apple TV has nothing to do with Apple strategy and philosophy... Otherwise, how on earth the iPod could be the standard?

It's just a matter that they haven't release a product good enough to be competitive, that's it. And that's why it's just a hobby for them... and for now.

Because it's just a matter of time; what people don't see is that they are preparing everything they will need to make it go from the hobby status to the standard... from iCloud to SIRI, as well as Facetime, Game Center, the App Store, etc... everything they do now for their other products will be another features they could add on their non-hobby Apple TV solution.

And that's actually what will make the difference with other manufacture that could spend millions of dollars to develop an equivalent solution.

It's just not the moment _yet_, just like it was the time for an iPad when Bill Gates introduced the UMPC Tablets in 2007. MP3 players already existed when Apple introduced the iPod. Smartphone already existed when Apple introduced the iPhone. And Tablets already existed when Apple introduced the iPad.

So it doesn't matter a "standard" solution such Roku already exist when they will decide to introduce their non-hobby solution.

How important is a candidate's knowledge of technology in winning your vote?
Extremely -- technology is at the center of most of the world's big problems and solutions.
Very -- a candidate who doesn't understand technology can't relate to young people.
Somewhat -- a general understanding is sufficient.
Not very -- choosing good advisers is more important than direct knowledge.
Not at all -- technology is often a distraction from more important issues.
