I recently bought an Amazon Fire TV Stick. I really like it. It’s not
a bad streaming device, although I would like it to have more integration
with the various streaming services. As it can search Hulu through the
voice interface, but it cannot search Netflix. In my personal opinion it
make it much better. The other major flaw is that the keyboard sucks. If
it didn’t have the voice search, it would be impossible to use. I hate
clicking and scrolling to type, it stinks. Other than those flaws, I would
have to say that I really like it. It has a real smooth interface for most
uses. It supports casting from your cell phone for the major apps, so
that’s nice. The remote feels slick and well put together.
I recently bought my first TV and I have to say that the audio quality on
them just does not live up to some of the older TVs my family has had. The
old TVs had such dynamic range to them, and the audio didn’t sound tinny.
On my TV, all the audio seems to lack feeling to it. It’s just pathetic. How
the mighty have fallen, in order to sell us more junk like sound bars and
stuff. Just a few years ago TVs actually sounded alright without a sound
bar, and now you kind of need to buy one to make it sound correct. It is
sad, this death of quality. Such a shame.
