If it was changed you know that Apple would say so, and Engadget would fawn all over it. Don't be obtuse.

A major point of differentiation between the original iPad mini and the iPad mini 2 is the display

Except maybe the Roku, which has completely destroyed Apple TV in terms of content for years. And has apps. And has always had apps.

And maybe the Amazon FireTV. Which has tonns of content. And apps.

This is apple playing catch up, and still managing to charge no less than double their competitors.

I was referring to the Mini 2, hence the "at the time." I clearly thought the Mini 2's issue was it still had the 1024x768 screen.

I can run any Android app on my Fire Stick out of the box. I don't care about how successful it is in the world, I don't have limitations.

Fire TV uses Android (APK), so you can side load anything that isn't on the amazon store and amazon has a huge library of content when it comes to movies\tv shows\music.

Amazon fire tv have been very successful for amazon.

Though I'm not sure how it's done outside of the US (i.e. Sweden where badboy is).

you are really comparing Firetv and roku hardware specs to the new apple tv and saying they are the same?
They charge more because it has better specs

Apple TV will laugh at roku and firetv app content very fast

Roku won't compete specs wise, but the Fire TV absolutely can.
Apple is playing catch up, it's years behind it's competitors on this front. I'm not saying this is a bad entry, it's actually quite a solid entry, but it needed to be because they are several years behind their competitors here.

The A8 is old enough that the Fire TV is definitely competitive, as are a number of other Android powered devices. They pretty much just upgraded the Apple TV as little as possible, yet still doubled the price.

Oh boy, 4k video from the iPhone... Welcome to two years ago...

Exactly, fire tv is almost 2 years old. The new apple tv doesn't even do 4k. Rumors the Roku 4 will do 4k.

A9 chip specs (and resultant performance) predicted by me 3+ weeks ago based on a simple picture of the chip: http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=34023647

65% more transistors yielding up to twice the GPU performance and somewhere in the neighborhood of 60% more CPU performance (more, depending on clocks).

How did that turn out? 70% faster CPU and 90% faster GPU revealed today.

BOOM.
