They have to make deals with smart TV device companies? What happened to just developing an app and making it available?

Roku's reported reasoning is especially egregious: advertising dollars. I'm glad I use Pi-Hole on my home network to block all of it, including Roku devices.

NA Transcripts is a great resource for finding content from current and old shows. Type in your search from an obscure clip in your memory from years ago. Find the show number, then go to nashownotes.com and find the clip. Thank you @adam and developers/producers for setting up and archiving all of this information that would be lost otherwise.

I'm glad I got Roku out of my living room. I'm not glad about still reading this site. "It's" versus "its" is really, really basic.

Based on initial testing, it looks like Assistive Touch must be on in order to use the button customization feature.

Unstable preview builds must constitute an unofficial launch. I really feel like I'm starting to get a handle on this whole "officially" thing.

"Officially" because, as everyone knows, Roger Penske unofficially owned IMS and the series prior to the sale's close.

On a serious note, "officially" is a plague.

Sadly, some of the worst writing I've ever read. Sadly, it's not just this article. Sadly, the site actually takes itself seriously.
