    That is already available on the Roamio and, from what I hear, is coming in September for the Premiere. So you shouldn't have to wait much longer for this.

    Out of home streaming was just announced, so it seems a bit premature for you to be irritated that it's not ready yet. Had they not mentioned it in all the reviews we wouldn't even know it was coming.

    Android support should probably be done by now. The Stream has been out for almost a year now, it shouldn't take that long for a company with TiVos resources to add streaming to the Android app no matter how challenging it was to accomplish.

    Because adaptive rate video streaming is easier than creating 5 or 6 HD text menus,..

    Yeah I'm definitely in the camp of the UI should be finished by now. I have no idea what the heck is taking them so long on that. All I can figure is they have one, part time, guy working on it. :)

    What if you live in a state with no state income tax?

    I know my Dad, who owns a business, has to report this kind of stuff as a "use tax" on his state/county taxes. But I don't think there is any way for a standard citizen to do it. And even if there is I doubt anyone is going to go out of their way to do it.

    That is so FULL OF CRAP

    You can make statistics say anything you want. Malware in Android when the ecosystem is USED PROPERLY through Google Play is almost a non-issue, no worse than iOS. It is only when one starts loading unsafe crap from unconfirmed sources does it get dangerous... and AT LEAST ANDROID GIVES YOU THAT CHOICE.

    It's probably true, but a loaded statistic none the less. Mobile malware is rare, regardless of the platform. 79% of nothing is still nothing.

    As a blanket statement (in huge letters, no less) it was extremely misleading. And I suspect the vast majority of people reading it would be led to one of several invalid conclusions. Which is why I huge lettered the reply right back.
