The 2016 edition of the Roku streaming stick is even better than the last.
I love Roku. I've replaced all my set top boxes with Roku units. I was using Roku 3 and 4's but this streaming stick is just as fast, has the same video quality and is a lot smaller/easier to deal with. Less cabling.
Sporting 4 processors the Roku 3600R is every bit as fast as my set top box style Roku units. It does everything they do that I want from it. I understand games may not function as well, but that has never been something I tried on the Roku.
Roku with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Plex is how my video consumption occurs these days. The YouTube app is also wonderful. Roku sports hundred, if not thousands, of custom and 3rd party channels as well. If you like international sports, or just miss programming from far away, Roku is pretty great.

I absolutely love my Roku player. Their simplest player, the Express is now $29. After recently comparing with the Apple, Google and Amazon TV devices I have, again, happily stuck with the Roku! Roku’s “channel” based content system makes it easy for me to have access to everything I’d like without subscriptions for cable. I […]
Not every house has a fireplace. And to be honest, not every homeowner wants to deal with the hassles and maintenance of a fireplace. But it’s tough to argue that the intoxicating glow and dance of a licking flame isn’t mesmerizing, not to mention all of a fire’s practical uses. For those looking to enjoy […]
Knowledge is power. And a company that knows who its customers are is far more likely to see those customers return. On the web, information gathering often comes in the shape of an online form. Whether it’s a registration, a contest, an order, or just a simple contact, those opportunities to engage with users and […]
It’s impossible for anyone to truly escape the effects our COVID-19 lifestyle changes have made, but if you’re a web developer, there’s a decent chance your work life might be virtually unchanged. Even before the quarantines and work-from-home orders, over 16 percent of web developers were already self-employed. And with a growing number of tech […]
