initial impressions

  • wow that's a tiny screen. And the default angle isn't facing-up enough to be nice to look at if you're standing up. It seems designed more to look over at when you're sitting at your desk.

  • jeez this seems like a stupid TV! You can't even "click through" (on any of the channels I have loaded) to get more detail (e.g. from weather forecast summary to more detail on just today, or from 1 Twitter entry to last-n from same person, etc.)

  • this seems almost like a bad compromise between a MiniITX Home Server and something from Ambient Devices...
