Not much help, as it doesn't get at the real point of these devices. AppleTV is good for pulling content from iTunes. Roku is good for streaming from the web. WD Live Hub is good for movies on its HD. Etc.

Yeah very basic info here. I'd like to see a more in depth chart. One criteria I'd like to see mentioned is how well the device handle bandwidth fluctuation. I noticed that netflix buffers much more via googletv than on XB360.

The fact that the chart itself doesn't even list closed captions or subtitles as a feature of concern says volumes about how little consideration is paid toward Americans with Disabilities in this market.

"The fact that the chart itself doesn't even list closed captions or subtitles as a feature of concern says volumes about how little consideration is paid toward Americans with Disabilities in this market."
Probably because "Americans with Disabilities" that require captions or subtitles to be able to watch the movie, are a very small percentage of the total audience.
Not that I don't feel for them, it would suck to be deaf, but I suspect that they are still a very small percentage.

People might want to check out the original, this guy has either copied or not been clever enough to find it yet.
They look way too close to me for this to be chance!
