“How can we make sure nobody tries to stack anything on top of this thing?..”
Yeah, this form factor pretty much forces you to put it on top of everything else. This would bother me…
I got the 350 model for $100 less than this at a Radio Shack that went out of business last month. I think its pretty much the same as this 500 model except the 350 doesn’t have WIFI and the 350 model is not shaped like the ocean on a windy day.
It actually is pretty cool. You hook it up to your household network and to the video/audio outputs of your set-top-box, then go to their web page. It finds the box and sets up things pretty painlessly.
Be aware that the Android and I assume Apple viewers cost an additional $15. It also doesn’t work on the Chrome browser native to a Google Chrome computer
I was honestly trying to figure out if it was just some “creative” photography to highlight the product or if just some really dumb twisted up design lol.
