Multimedia, AV "Yesterday, Logitech hosted an Analyst and Investor Day and during his remarks, CEO Guerrino De Luca pulled absolutely no punches in describing the 'mistakes' the company made with its Logitech Revue Google TV set top box. Calling the company's Christmas 2010 launch 'a mistake of implementation of a gigantic nature', De Luca told investors that the company had 'brought closure to the Logitech Revue saga' by making plans to let inventory run out this quarter and that there are 'no plans to introduce another box to replace Revue'."

Look, this is a better design than my small Lenovo Q150. The Q150 is just enough to be useful but it runs windows 7 and that means media center and the ability to use silicondust receiver. I prefer an antenna as it gets me additional channels that I can't get anywhere else.

If this box would just the single option to have a usb boot then it would have sold. All you guys are saying is that it sucks because the OS. I agree that some people seems to have a poor unit (after all prisoners in China make them).

This little box if opened would have been a great linux setup for tv. I don't want to run the latest games on it, just want to watch normal tv and record some shows and play some internet. This box is both energy efficient and powerful enough to do what most people would want.
