tvOS, gen4 AppleTV and the Shaft

appletvYears ago I went out and purchased a Gen 3 AppleTV.    I had such high hopes.   This is going to be the device of the future!  Time  went by and I continued to wait for the AppleTV to be the next big thing.     As I waited, the Roku and FireTV got better and better.    I finally gave up and purchased multiple FireTVs for my house.    It has been a great product and I have been happy with it ever since.

I was not really paying attention when I noticed the press conference.   AppleTV update!     tvOS! A new appstore for TV stuff, gaming and Siri!    I am finally being rewarded for keeping  my generation 3 AppleTV.     But wait there’s more…….

Apple will not be releasing the new software features to the generation 3 AppleTV.   In fact if you purchased a gen 3 AppleTV just a couple weeks ago all you get is a giant middle finger.      If you want the new features you will have to purchase the 4th generation for $150.   I wonder if Apple is going to start dropping support for all their products that are just 1 generation old.

I will put the gen 3 Apple TV back in the drawer and go back to my FireTv.   At least I will  have an appstore,  voice search, games and it already supports all my two favorite apps plex and kodi.
