Apple Second Generation TV Unit Just Doesn’t Work

20120114-123946.jpg

For the love of Pete, can someone out there in Apple land fix the trainwreck known as Apple TV 2? It just does not work. Movies download sufficiently well but the problems begin when one wants to watch the rented film.

The movie takes forever to start and, when it does, invents its own commercial breaks by stopping and reloading in mid-scene. My favorite is when, during the last rented movie my husband and I tediously watched, the movie decided to reload approximately five minutes before the ending.

So, Apple people, instead of working on a future release of an Apple HDTV, how about fixing the little black box known as the Apple TV 2 unit first? This product needs to be recalled and/or repaired via an immediate software update.

I think the only thing more maddening about the deficiency of this Apple TV 2 gadget is Apple’s silence at the thousands upon thousands of consumers ranting on their message boards.

Steve Jobs must be rolling in his grave. He was all about consumer satisfaction and communication.

Since he died, the only headlines capturing our attention were the millions of shares shoved into CEO Tim Cook’s pocket. Like we care.

We do not begrudge Apple’s head honchos their financial due, but we do hold them to task when products do not work while the company fails to address the issues.

I am an Apple fan and it will take a cold day in hell before I defect. But remember, all fans are created differently and can be fickle, depending on their tolerance level.

How about you? Is your Apple TV 2 unit going wonky? Did you manage a magical fix? If so, share in the comments section.
