Where's LG?

Even though, I had said yesterday that it was pretty much just a question of when...rather than will I...on getting the NetFlix Set-Top device. It occurred to me today that I thought LG was working on a device as well. And, then reading the various RSS feeds I get, started working if a NetFlix only Set-Top box was really thing thing to get. It would probably be cooler if it did more than just NetFlix, but I'm still leaning away from sticking a Windows box into my Home Theater.

If I were to stick a box in, it would be a Mac Mini....in fact that's another question of when than will I. I'm leaning towards this fall, to where I've decided to not put off getting a new Windows computer until perhaps the next Windows release (assuming I'm still stuck with a few Windows apps that won't move). An iMac to become my main desktop computer is starting to look like a possibility....

We'll ignore that the when will I question for the Mac Mini has been burning on my mind for over 3 years now..... :lalala:

I guess I might wait a little bit longer on getting a NetFlix device (instead of the original plan of pulling the trigger sometime after I get back from the upcoming training trip I'll be going on for work).

Though there is the question of what kind of box NetFlix streaming would get incorporated into. Or if LG (or other company) will just come out with alternative NetFlix only devices. Because, I pretty much have no interest in getting a set-top box that does more than just NetFlix....if the extra stuff it does, just duplicates functions I already have.

:?

I guess I'm more interested in whether there'll be quality or upconversion enhancements in rival offerings.

Actually, I was looking at my plan…and I had planned to look to see if I could still afford to buy it after the coming long weekend.

But, I guess I’ll put it off for the time being….I was probably gonna be overspent from the weekend anyways.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
