Apple TV needs a refresh, and pronto, if new numbers from Parks Associates are to be believed. The market research outlet reported Friday that Apple TV slipped to fourth place on the list of most-sold streaming devices in 2014.
That list was led by Roku, with 34% of all U.S. consumers who bought a streaming device opting either for a Roku streaming box or stick in 2014. No. 2 was Google with 23%; 14% of consumers opted for a device made by a company other than Apple, Amazon, Roku or Google.

The cars many only dream of buying are flying off dealer lots. As the AP’s John Mone explains, super luxury brands and high performance vehicle makers are boasting about big sales numbers in the last year. (Jan. 15)
