i have both

on the mlbtv app on the appletv i can watch 2 games at once. on the roku jawn i cannot. nhltv is essentially the same product so id reckon its the same thing there.

apple tv is more expensive and has a better, more advanced interface. roku is choppier and simplistic. in essence they both do the same things and roku is cheaper.

no i know what you meant...but the only apple thing i have is an iphone but would never watch tv on it

You use the Apple TV to display content on your tv so that you don't have to watch on your phone, dingus.

My old company used Nortel...seemed to work well enough.

Should this thread be re-named to Technology?

Since I moved into my house about 10 years ago, somebody climbed up through the kitchen window to steal my ex-girlfriends purse (recovered), somebody else (or maybe the same person) broke-in, while I was in NOLA getting robbed by a girl, to try to steal my shtein (neighbors called the cops and all items the thief had were retrieved), and then a few days ago, some motherfarger tried to drill out the lock cylinder but were not able to gain entry.

Considering how popular my house is, I want to buy a couple security cameras to mount around the doors. I'd prefer them to be small enough that they wouldn't be easily noticed. Does anybody have any recommendations?

Also, do private citizens have cost efficient access to facial recognition software?

No, you should have started a Home Security thread.

For your exterior, it's actually better for cameras to be visible as their presence serves as a deterrent.  Thief sees cameras, thief chooses a new house to rob.  Most important thing about exterior cameras is placement, as you want them to have visibility of the most vulnerable entry point(s) to your home, but you also want them to be mounted high enough that they can't easily be tampered with.

Probably not, but there are a lot of wifi enabled smart lock systems popping up on the market over the last few years.  I haven't really looked into them myself so I couldn't recommend any particular brand over another but they're definitely out there.

Though it may be hard to believe, it's actually a nice enough neighborhood. I'm assuming the latest incident was a neighborhood kid because I'm pretty sure you can't drill a lock out like that to gain entry, but I think I've seen it in a movie.

The facial recognition would be to enable visiting the perpetrator at his home; not unlock my door for me. If it's a kid, no reason to get the police involved, and if it's an adult, maybe I can help him find a job or something.

Best Buy had that same exact price like 2 weeks ago when I bought one for my daughter, except it was the latest 2017 model instead of the 2015.

There is no latest model.  The last update to the Mini was in 2015.  Mine, like your daughterís, is brand new. 

Most of the sites I looked at today for the 128gb were $399 too.  The Target one also offers free shipping. 

So there.

On a somewhat related note, I've been in Austin for like 2 weeks and I was able to buy a used (2010) 13" Macbook from some dude on CL for $250.  Nice dude, gay as farg, kept the thing in immaculate condition.  And there's like a gazillion similar listings around here for about the same price.  This will make a nice bridge for about 2 years until I feel like shelling out $1200 on a new one. 

Seriously though....similar Macbooks in Pennsyltucky are being listed for $500+ and most of them look pretty farging beat up.

No.  How precise do you really need?

Assuming that he's measuring his wang for his grindr profile, he probably wants something that rounds up.
