Atheism is the default neutral stance, as it is basically the scientific approach.

"A god or gods may exist, but until there is evidence it doesn't make sense to consider the possibility".

Agnosticism isn't neutral as it claims the idea of gos is unknowable and therefore untestable. Which is not scientific and basically just giving up.

OK, yeah, that's fair. My first smart TV was a 6350 model, and it's bloody amazing.

I bought a cheap 40 6050 and the smart tv interface was absolutely awful, I returned it because it was so slow and cumbersome.

The 6300 series and higher though, it's fast and intuitive, and I can't imagine not having it.

I don't care if I ever get an update on my TV. It allows me to access my NAS via DLNA, so that I can download a torrent from my phone and then quickly pull it up via a menu on my TV. Like Plex, except I don't have to pay because it's a standard, coincidentally which none of the stick devices like Chromecast support.

The only other two apps I use are Netflix and Amazon, and I don't see either of those companies abandoning their apps anytime soon.

It's a PC. A PC doesn't becomes useless just because it can't run the latest software.

Where are you getting that from? I have a Samsung F6300, and they have fixed the apps via updates whenever there is an issue.

Samsung use the same smart tv software for all their models with minor tweaks, so no reason you shouldn't have updates.

Check avs forums for the owners thread, and more than likely there is a fix for whatever issue you are having.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
