The wind comes sweepin' down the plain

Oklahoma was living up to its reputation where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain. It was a week of storms and high winds. No lawn furniture or hair style was safe.

It was also a week of being electrocuted every time I sat down at my desk. I had to place a sticky note on my monitor to remind me to ground myself before I sat down. Nothing like a strong cup of coffee and a static discharge to wake you up in the mornings.

In other news, we now have an Apple TV at the house. So, after a solid week of using it, it's really won me over, and this is coming from a big Roku fan.

It's attached to our 4K Roku TV, so it's easy to compare the two platforms. In my opinion, the Apple TV has better video quality and streaming stability. In usability the Roku and Apple TV interfaces are close to the same, with the edge going to Apple TV and it's iOS style. Same for the Roku and Apple TV remotes. However, I keep hitting the Siri button on the Apple TV remote thinking it's the volume rocker as on the Roku remote.

It's only been a week, but I like what I've seen so far with Apple TV. Have you used both? Which do you like better, Apple TV or Roku?

More later. Time to chase down a bucket blowing across the yard. Yep, it's still windy.
