The whole design of it looks like the back of the Kindle Fire HDX. Very angular. It stands out but is not my favorite thing. Thing is I never have to look at a Kindle Fire HDX's back, just the screen which looks fantastic. This doesn't look great, but I guess that doesn't matter. If it feels good, and has good build quality, then maybe its worth Jeff begrudgingly purchasing and then bemoaning on the podcast.
Android video game consoles are not a thing, why do people keep trying to make them a thing? I guess the answer is already self evident. Video games are the killer app of the living room computer (like cellphones for the pocket which erased every other kind of pocket computer), so if you want to build a living room computer, it has to at least try and do video games properly. And if you made it android, it would come with a bunch of apps and games already. Even if those games are crap in the living room.
