I'm guessing they're the T40 IIs (black ones) which are amazingly still on sale new but I got a set of original T40s (grey ones) in 2007. If they're the grey ones then he's talking out of his arse.Rather I found a guy on craigslist selling a pair of Creative Gigaworks T40 for $60. They only a year old supposedly.
I had to look up what those were, but yes, they sound nice. I had a set of Creative T3 2.1 speakers for a while, and I felt bad for my neighbors whenever I used it. That sub makes the whole building shake...I'm guessing they're the T40 IIs (black ones) which are amazingly still on sale new but I got a set of original T40s (grey ones) in 2007.

Great speakers that have a nice weight to them, sound nice and look great with the yellow Kevlar-coned drivers. The power supply in mine died but I kept the drivers and two of them now live along with a 1960s Lucas car cassette player in the little unit I built for my mother to play old cassettes.
Edit: Think I found the Craigslist ad, yeah those are T40 IIs. Seems like a fair price.
Updates work wonders.
I was having issues with the LibreELEC/KODI installation on my Raspberry-Pi-2, to wit: The YouTube addon just couldn't play videos remotely smooth anymore, running into buffering issues so severe that it was completely unusable.
I then noticedt that I couldn't update that addon, and neither the others that had also updates available.
So.... update the whole system it is. Now that I'm running the lates 9.2.8 version instead of 9.0.2, the addons could be updated and I can watch YouTube again.
... now off to working through my backlog.
wasn't someone just saying that their TV had discontinued carrying apps he used so they were looking for a streaming stick?This covers more than Vizio, and has hard numbers of what your viewing information is worth. I am worth $40 a month to Roku according to the article.
I think it is time to build an HTPC.
I prefer my Amazon Fire TV set up. I have the DVR through them so it records antena tv and lets me watch that too. the cubes also have voice controls that let me shout at it, the navigation is clean and intuitive... I also think its well worth the price of prime membership but if you dont have one you can still use the Fire stick for free content and to use to open apps. Its remote has controls for power and volume
Roku is probably the best overall and have a fantastic remote with headphones kinda neat. I got this after a tv I bought had Roku built in. I dont like the overall cutsy behavior (takes over the background during holidays even if i set a background)
I tend to stay with Amazon
