Roku's Upcoming Streaming Stick

This is the type of innovation that will lead to a new era of television. While it is unfortunate that this new chapter won't include access to all the content we want on-demand (although great inroads are being made), it will instead be defined by eliminating the hassles between the viewer and the content we already have. I think Roku is on the right track with this device.

Update (2012-01-04): Dan Frommer has a slightly different perspective than my own on this announcement. Frankly, there's nothing within his argument to say that this new Roku "box" won't be a success per se. Rather he presents a healthy, but bridled skepticism about Roku's prospects based on their current performance.


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
