A friend bought a new Sony GTV box and asked me to help her figure everything out. She has a slow internet connection which IMHO greatly impacted her user experience. I think even the Chrome bookmarks are cloud based meaning all those thumbnails load each time you want to use Bookmarks and this can be painful to wait for if you have many many bookmarks saved. Additionally, 1st Gen boxes don't seem to have enough Ram for running a bunch of Apps resulting in freeze ups and the need for rebooting, it appears that the Apps rely on cloud storage as well which further degrades the user experience. Solution: Why not switch to a system with less reliance on the cloud and improve performance?
