Unbox is Not Supported
After the release of Apple TV I have been looking around at different video services. One of those was Amazon’s “Unbox” which installs a player that connects to Amazon and downloads the movies for you to enjoy. I figured since Amazon has some other great services I would take it for a spin, but sadly noticed this section of the “System Requirements”. It basically says if you have a Mac, you are screwed!
Now my question is if so many other companies can build a cross-platform video application, why can’t Amazon? What’s really odd is Amazon is usually the one to “do things different” and this time they really haven’t even tried.
If I *really* wanted to test it out I could load it into Bootcamp or Parellels but it still defeats the purpose for most users.
