They make it seem like its helping the US vs the rest of the world. Much like the loftily titled "The Patriot Act!!!", how could that possibly be bad?
FTA: "In some circumstances, this information allows competitors to design around U.S. technologies and seize markets before the U.S. inventor is able to raise financing and secure a market"

In reality it will be used to stifle commentary of the sheer ridiculousness of the current patent system.

It may well have changed living rooms, but it did not cause a revolution, which is what this sd post is about. It was late, crippled, under powered. The fact that it can show netflix movies is not revolutionary. My dogs water bowl can show netflix movies. As for dropping the cable company, many have done likewise but not necessarily because of apple.

Sorry to piss on your corn flakes but,

iPad - not living room specific - did not cause a living room revolution. There were laptops and tablets in the living room long before the ipad.

Apple TV.....Really?......REALLY? a crippled late-to-tha-game almost-abandoned video streamer box is a revolution?

Fan much?
