As mentioned by various people, Plex is a superb option (I've gone through the gamut over 10 years). Just ensure that your hardware is up to minspec. This excludes many lower end NAS devices such as my previously faithful qnaps.
I went full circle actually after doing my best to devolve media down to low power appliances and built a lovely little i3 fileserver in a Fractal Design Node 304 case.
That + Plex is a real winner. My main TV supports it natively via a Plex app. My study and bedroom TV's now have Chromecasts shoved up em to achieve the same. I can access my media gracefully from anywhere with no ongoing faff and yet more of my world revolves around my smartphone which annoys the significant.
Absolutely disagree on the remote control aspect - I use the thing constantly on my One. The guide is great and the faves/reminders setup is really good, simple integration.
Also I can turn off the screen in the estate agent window opposite each evening after work and turn the footy volume up in the pub when the barmaid leaves the music on.
Registers AP must be mincing your traffic or something - close to zero delay here in issuing orders via iplayer, youtube and Lovefilm. Lovely thing for 30 nicker (basically iplayer on a stick).
A moment of reduced noise in honour of the great man please.
I reckon a bit of "it'll be ready when I say it is" will do them many favours. Was anything ever great when designed in a hurry by a committee?
/not a apple user but looking forward to Ive's input
Re: Was this written last summer???
Or get an i5 3570k for less than the piledriver midrange and still get more performance for half the wattage. I used AMD for ten years until they started ****ing the bed last year. They haven't stopped yet.
Playstation 4 says hi.
"Free in every sense"
bwahaha good one. Thanks. Yes I love my free Nexus phone and the free and professional support I offer my linux users. They love free support too. Much better than the paid support they used to have to pay for when they were using MS software. Lovely.

Should have gone to specsavers.
Re: final blow for Windows
Your games portfolio must be pretty small. :E
Thanks for saving me some typing! (apart from this bit).
Re: Technical Doublespeak
The detail is amazing. I can see you waving your willy from here.
Not an issue.
An entirely easy problem to solve with next to no considerations to internal infrastructure. There are some great products out there that meet all the above requirements at fixed (surprisingly low) costs and are completely agnostic in terms of your local setups. Happy to be contacted.
Re: Why don't they say the sad truth? It's all a farce
Ever hear of perimeter archiving?
Regarding the touchpad issues mentioned earlier..
Plug a mouse in....wireless nano detects fine.
works for me
Had my prime since Feb and use it day in day out servicing infrastructure clients and their kit (via rdp) at their various sites whilst keeping on top of email etc. I needed about ten quids worth of apps to complete the picture (decent VMware/RDP client and touchdown for mail) but otherwise the cost of the prime has been entirely justified by usage and convenience. You simply cannot buy a tiny 100% solid state win/nix laptop with three days battery life for 500 notes otherwise I might have done.
The USB hub was very useful on holiday. Dumping my camera onto the thing each night was a breeze. Trains are now a multimedia pleasure (headphones make the single speaker a non issue). micro HDMI is occasionally a decent crowd pleaser.
Very disappointed that there's no 3g again though otherwise I'd have upgraded and ebayed the prime in a heartbeat.
Possibly mentioned already - You don't need to download 1.7gb - the software allows the choice of making a win or nix booter. the nix is about 70mb.
Haha I missed the wikileak where apaches got fitted with doors let alone door gunners. Herp derp 50 cal I can tell by the pixels etc.

...they probably shouldn't be reinstalling windows on bare-metal. :)
CD's are so 90's.
The Onion got it right a while back with the MacBook Wheel video. "Great if you're just screwing around and don't have any actual work to do".
The second time I read that article the more needlessly scathing it seems. Of course facebook isn't a 15, 10 or even 5 billion company, but it's still captured a vast base of users who're quite happy to flesh out the most tiny detail about themselves. It remains a direct marketeers wet fking dream and that information retains value whether you're a bitter old prat or someone who actually uses the service.
