You have google as your best friend to learn and research how far we went to improve our previous devices. It Will be the same for this product. We have every intention to make it better and more functional.

* The people who made the iXtreamer are very much the same as most readers of this page. We all enjoy our media and gadgets and hate to pay for it a fortune, only to find out short time later a “newer” model is out living us “blind” to its innovation. It started as immature product based on new platform slash market-testing type of brand back at 2009. Drawing lots of skepticism and surrounded with quite a bit of poisonous sarcasm from many of our electronics manufacturer competitors, we nevertheless are still growing. but now it’s taken on a life of its own. While we will continue to invest our best efforts for our customers we anticipate profitability by 2043 – by then we should be retired; someone smarter might take over or copy us in china or simply jack up the prices. Until then, we’re still here, offering you warm welcome coupled with the best device we can do at price tag which you can live with. Why pay more ?

* Ahh! if you really ask yourself “why pay more”…the answer is simple.
In our industry most devices are doing more or less the same, sometimes with very minor differences to notice, packed with lots of “features and functions and codecs we rarely or ever find or use. By the end of the day its all about “user experience” and “fun”. Something we personaly expect from any “Toy” with AC Adapter. If you come across “spec sheets” that offer you to live high up at the “olympus of technology” it really does not mean much for more than few month anyway. We found out that if you do insist to pay much more, not necessarily you will get much more. sometime to the contrary. Kapish ? Enjoy your stay.

    Jesus H Christ look at that remote. Zillions of buttons. Didn’t they learn anything from Apple.

    Who in their right mind would buy this turd?”

    Don’t be in such a hurry to condemn this. It does many things that the new aTV doesn’t do.

    And that remote is the one from the Samsung Tv. Millions of people have them, so don’t be so quick to criticize.

  2. Seriously, this thing does give Apple a bit of a kick in the arse to come up with something as capable, most likely in the form of the next generation Apple TV.

    Business thrives on competition.

    How soon will this gadget be hacked? Any guesses?

  3. OK, I don’t get it…..don’t my apple products already to this?

    I have to say, I almost got excited when I saw that little eye thing on the front and thought this was a type of hi-def projector I could plug my iPad/iPod into. Now that would be cool. I could have out-door parties without all the extra stuff, white sheet and I’m good to go. It would make those Lake parties and my DJ’ing pretty freak’n good for an old man.

    Yeah, it’ all about the late 60’s and Disco baby! Us old timers remember…
