I'm hoping that software updates bring a little more polish to using the keyboard but it's not terrible if you consider it to be sort of a public "beta" until a couple software updates occur.
Also, there is a USB Port. I've got a keyboard hooked up to it right now.
The Plex App on Fire TV is $0.99 and I bought it as well with some of the free Amazon "Coins" that I got from buying the Amazon Controller. I'll update some info when I get the device paired with my Plex Server.
The box is a lot bigger than Apple TV and includes an external power brick (unlike AppleTV). The physical look and feel of the device and remove are very premium.
The controller is big and uncomfortable. D-PAD is very poorly positioned. This is worse than the Pre-S XBox Controller. It feels like the NVidia Shield a bit but that at least has an entire computer (roughly as powerful as the Fire TV) inside the controller. Seriously, I think they hired the Atari Jaguar controller design team here
First impression is that the UI is not as polished or pretty as the Apple TV but it seems usable. Voice Search is fairly fast but not nearly as "instant" as the commercials and videos online make it seem. Also, the results are only for Amazon Instant Video, Amazon App Store (and supposedly Hulu but I haven't seen any of those).
HBO GO is not on it yet. I installed Flixster to access my Ultraviolet Collection. Unfortunately, Flixster will not play any of my movies in HD and highly compressed 480 SD resolution is a mess on my 65" TV.
And my Fire TV remote seems to lose "pairing" a lot. I sometimes have to use the game controller to go to settings and then to Add Remote and it will find it again.
What it failed to do was detect an actual fire that didn't produce much, if any, smoke.
How does and old fashioned smoke detector fare at detecting fires that don't produce smoke?
Having someone who is perceived as being bigotted and biased against a minority community as CEO is at odds with Mozilla's reason for existence.
Hence, he is a bad fit for CEO despite his other qualifications.
What if he had said, "blacks don't deserve the right to vote"?
If someone said that in Alabama in 1957, would it be justified to deny them employment for the rest of their life even if they changed their mind after the Civil Rights Act passed?
Nope... but I certainly wouldn't put them as the CEO of an organization that officially places a higher value on openness and inclusiveness than profit.
As a CEO, can I not have any beliefs?
The CEO of a company can have religious beliefs. However, the Supreme Court of the US is about to decide if the a Corporation can have strongly religious beliefs based on the beliefs of it's CEO and if those beliefs justify not complying with Federal Laws (Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc).
