The half-cut cord: What's bugging me about cable

"I cut the cord. I came back. Now I'm feeling lost in the middle."

I dunno. I think this guy is plugging Roku.
And to have DVRs increase storage means increasing cost to end user. I doubt Motorola or other DVR vendors really care because they are too busy churning them out, then having a unified, smart, interface. And to have one "rule them all" with search and function is stretching it: we can't even all agree on an OS, an interface (HDMI, MiniDisplayport, Optical, Component, etc) or such.
Author also likes HBOGo which I don't. The expiration dates, content control and cost (plus having to have HBO to have this) just add more cost.
I do agree that there is too much cr-p on the cable to choose from. Someone will make an app. Then some studio will buy it and call it a spade.
And having too many media options is crazy too...360, PS3, AppleTV, Roku, smartTv Apps, ...I think I have 6 devices registered to Netflix alone...
I just want You-Tube to stop spinning and work again!
