I am wondering what Roku 4 may have in store?
a web browser would be nice to begin with


It is said that YouTube, the latest and greatest user interface from Netflix, All streaming sports channels, all major networks, and even the ability to re-hydrate dehydrated pizza will all be included.

Beyond that Roku has not said what will be included.

Will it make toast? If it won't make toast, I want no part of it. <The entropy of a perfect crystal, at absolute zero kelvin, is exactly equal to zero. - Third Law of Thermodynamics>, you can buy a $10 toaster from Walmart that'll make toast. It's unconscionable that the Roku 4 won't make toast. Somebody's got some 'splaining to do.

No, it needs a touch sensor in the buttons on the remote that detect hunger via biofeedback and automatically orders the pizza without your intervention.

No I don't think "toast" is even on the drawing board.

However, (you didn't here it here) there is an auxiliary device controlled by the Roku's remote that will open and bring you beer, or other beverage if you are so inclined, also the little device cleans the kitchen and gets food out of the freezer to thaw. But it cannot cook due to the incompatible nature of most appliances cooking proved too difficult to implement reliably.

But THAT would require storing credit card information and that is against everything that Roku and the US stand for. It is UN-American and if implemented will cause me and my friends to abandon everything Roku.

Clearly if Roku moves in that direction it will destroy them as a company and ruin the future for everyone involved.

No, I was not. But now that you mention it... Gets food out of the freezer but can't cook, cleans selectively... it could be at least partially true. :wink:

the roku 4 will be even smaller, and therefore won't be the right size for toast. but i heard it will make croutons

I heard that the roku 4 will have a second hidden button under the battery compartment that warps space time,thus allowing roku owners to watch films and television programs up to a year before they are casted and filmed

EDIT------------- we will have to wait until the roku 5 comes out to get the time warp to work on the lotto channel tho... :(

Delayed indefinitely. Engineering is have a difficult time with the Einstein-Rosen Bridge. Something about power issues.

C. Shawn Smith...


That should be solvable. All the engineers need to do is draw energy from another universe using a McKay-Miller space time bridge. The exotic particles that are created can be shunted into that other universe and, even though previous experiments hit inhabited universes, there is a fair chance that the universe we use will not be and, even if it is, we can just let it go as we would not be destroying "our" universe.

There "could" be a problem of bridging the bridges but by pulling in a little ~science~ from the Star Trek universe I am sure the incompatibilities between the bridges of the Eureka and Stargate universe bridges should be easily ironed out. Of course they "may" need a little help from the Babylon universe but that help should be minor as almost all natural laws are rendered invalid by the first three so the Babylon universe has very little to do to get rid of all the rest.

Who would have ever thought that simply creating a Roku 4 would result in all the laws of science being rendered invalid.

How's that for mixing my science fiction TV series references.

Rumor has it that the Roku 4 will not only make toast it will also be the first streaming set top box to make 3 different varieties of toast, regular, french and on a stick.
