True, but Google and Apple are doing their best to take over home networks where they are in charge
(system administrators). Consumers need to realize this domination strategy and reject the invasion of our home and bedroom privacy.
Imagine you are in bed at 3:00am, can't sleep and turn on the TV. Google will instantly know and track your viewing habits and have a dossier ready for any court, investigator, police or lawyer. They don't notify you as its legal to do in secret, just like GPS tracking.
American technology has gone into the tracking toilet. With nothing better to do, we are feeding off each other, while the price of manufactures goods is goes thru the roof. Have you seen the price increases of goods from China (now that we are hooked)?
The devil himself could not have executed this plan any better.
A htpc defeats them all in one swoop.
X-rite, probably the largest maker display color calibration, released sub-standard or defective products in the past. I could not recommend them. Now, however even the calibrators here recognize the brilliance, price and accuracy of the i3 Display Pro 3 meter and free x-rite software. It the real deal for those who want the freedom, power and convenience of a htpc.
I authored a thread on reducing equipment clutter over in the htpc forum.
