    With Plex available on iOS as well as OSX, and with Google TV devices retailing for the same price as the aTV (Vizio Co-Star and NeoTV Prime both retail for $99), and with the Google TV offering far more than the aTV does, what's everyone's opinion on the future of the aTV? Do you think you'll stick with it, or are you tempted to take a look at Google's offering?

    I've been pretty satisfied with the aTV for the most part, but some of the Google TV features are really catching my eye. At the moment, it seems like the only real benefit for the aTV is AirPlay, something I don't use very much to begin with.

    What are everyone else's thoughts on this? I'm very interested in hearing what the potential pros and cons of each one are.

    At this point AirPlay and playing the iTunes library are the ONLY reasons for an ATV. U should had picked one of the other boxes.

    I wish they make a Droid box so I just download the desired app to do whatever I want.
