Re: Roku?

I have a Roku and an Apple TV. IMO Apple TV is better. I like Sky news that is free on ATV. The quality and stability of the operating system is much better than Roku.

Re: The health care bill is past by just 7 votes!

True! It's sad that we can't seem to get the truth. It's all tainted. I haven't read much on the details of the bill and how it will affect normal people. That information is hard to find.

Re: The health care bill is past by just 7 votes!

It makes me laugh when Americans (Fox News) use terms like 'socialism' because they have no idea what they're talking about. What also makes me laugh is when the very people who would be helped by...

Re: A visit back to the U.K has not helped
