Have you piloted all three?
I own a Transformer with a dock and I use it about as much or more than my colleagues use their iPads.
It's the second tablet that is both price and feature superior to the iPad/2.
The first transformer was the first one, this is the second one..
The iCar will only be able to drive on iRoads, sadly there aren't many iRoads but those few that exist look really sleek.
I would love to read your reply but all I see is a wall of text. Learn to use paragraphs please.
Fixed it for you:
As a Boxee Box owner from almost day 1 of its release, I would say they finally made it out of the alpha stage and into the beta.
While I love it, it is still riddled with bugs and poor design choices. Plus, as a non US resident (like the other 90% of the planet), Hulu (which btw, doesn't exist on Boxee), Netflix and Vudu mean nothing to me.
I originally bought the Boxee Box because I believed it would be more open (ie. the firmware being open to hacking), as opposed to the other options where they are based off closed sourced code exclusively.
Sadly this isn't the case. While I'm able to download the source for Boxee and fix the bugs, I'm unable to apply these fixes to my Boxee Box to make sure they are working 100%. This disappoints me.
I can understand their need to make the content providers like Netflix and Vudu feel safe, but what about the other 90% of the market that has no access to these features?
Why not go the Chrome route where you have one official build that supports the American content, and then still allow the Chromium builds that exclude the propriety stuff for a more community driven endeavor?
I actually see the with rage when I hear the Boxee team praising their support for American video service X.
Many other devices on the market already have that
They are only diverting resources and alienating non US based residents to support the minority.
And don't even get me started on them supporting new devices when they can't even get their flagship product working properly...
At least Canada has a Canadian version of Netflix..
Nothing except for youtube works in the BoxeeBox that is sold in Sweden...
In Sweden the maximum speed limit on a road is 110km/h
Cars/Trucks that weigh over 3.5 Metric tons are limited to 90Km/h.
If you are going 200km the gain from driving 100km/h versus 90km/h is 13 minutes. That's nothing considering you are driving for nearly two hours.
Why would you want to overtake one of these things?
They will follow the speed limit so you won't have any reason what so ever to overtake them, besides not following the speedlimit yourself.
What's moronic about 2+1 roads?
Some of the newer "telephones" are so bad at making calls you should really call them computers...
You have a telephone and then put a computer in it, what do you get? A computer that can make calls.
You have a car, and you put a computer in it, what do you get? A computer on wheels.
Yes of course they are... every time I want to go to youtube I accidentally type redtube.com instead, or tube8.com or xtube.com. The keys are so close....
And when I want to go to disney.com I type bangbus.com instead.
Kids should learn to type, or their parents should block the content if they don't monitor their childs Internet usage already.
