Interesting article, but I'm not holding my breath for Android TV to succeed. Google's already failed a half dozen times at this. Plus Amazon beat them to market.
If I was in the market for a new device right now, I would pick a Fire TV. I don't have the time or money to sink into a "big" console like the latest XBox or Playstation right now, but I would actually be interested in the casual gaming features and controller of the Fire. But as it is, that's still not enough to get me to pay $140 when I have two Rokus in the house.
