Because the thread was about the ouya and fire tvThere are better machines out there, with volume controls on the remote, sure more money but there is better. If people are serious about how much time they spend on watching TV then why not look into something more user friendly and more importantly, a better quality picture, its YOUR eyes after all.
You can spend as much as you want and get something even better,but not what the thread is about
I also dont belive pressing a button that says "install apk" is neccessarily over complicated...even for the "common person" as you put it
You seem to have had a bad experience,but it doesnt mean that the device is no good,or complicated,or is a scam,or doesnt work,or takes your time and effort or is only good for amazon services
People reading these posts probably would want an unbiased opinion,not just when you dont like something it must be poop lol
Yes its an amazon box,but it does work fine with xbmc also and there are a lot of people out there that seem happy with the device and using it for this purpose
