@OluseyiSonaiya I wonder if this is strategy on Apple’s part or inertia due to Apple TV predating ubiquitous smart phones.

@OluseyiSonaiya I haven’t used a Chromecast, but I could certainly believe that. What is the disadvantage to that model? No games?

@mdrockwell And I put “premium” in quotes because I’m not even convinced they have a better product.

@LK64076007A Goods points, although to some extent a good to-do app eliminates the need for paying an assistant $$$.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to LK64076007A

@LK64076007A So make more kinds of apps and more niche apps? Yes, probably lots of opportunities there.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to LK64076007A

@LK64076007A What are you suggesting? More segmentation?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to LK64076007A

@Mglo @siegel You’re welcome! Although, honestly I didn’t intend to provide *that* good of a deal. A paid upgrade is in development.

@Jon_Alper Yeah, I understand that some people just don’t like subscriptions on principle. There are some good arguments on that side.
