Roku CEO: Apple TV is a money-loser

I find this article interesting for several reasons.

First reason:

Apple TV is essentially an accessory for the iPad.”

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I haven’t used my iPad in conjunction with my Apple TV in ages. Simply put: the Apple TV is a standalone product in it’s own right.

Second reason:

Wood noted that the day Apple launched its $99 box, Roku sales doubled.

I’ve heard it before – it’s not a true product category until Apple has a space in it, even if they claimed it was just a ‘hobby.’

Third reason:

In lieu of parental controls, the company has codes for some customers to have access to certain content — like pornography.

I’d like to see some stats on how many times that ‘code’ has been requested.
