Impossible product. A mess to install and it does not have a program guide for USA. Apparently, Equinux has some sort of guide deal but it is buried in their website (typical German style with 10 times too much text, duplicated information but structured in such a bizarre way that you will never find what you are looking for). This product will not be useful to anybody at least not in the US. They have half a dozen other products too but, again, it's too messy to understand. They'd betted bundle it all up in 2-3 product and make them work properly.
It's such a shame to see good engineering disappear by bad UI and marketing.

I tried out the demo and it seems like a pretty good turn-based strategy game. But why is it so expensive?

So I bought the full version. It is indeed well made and it is a good game-play. The main problem is the relatively weak AI. It completely ignores Africa and the Middle East for example. After playing once against the cpu (and lost) it is now almost impossible to lose no matter how many advantages and handicap I give the AI. I think for $50, the developers should keep issuing updates that fix balance issues and AI weaknesses.
It may be more fun if you play person-to-person than against the cpu.

EyeTV3.0 essentially is the same app as version 2. Not much will have changed in the eyes of the user. It is easier to export to other formats. The export feature is flakey and unstable. Two out of three times I scheduled a recording, the export stalled in the middle so I was unable to view the movie on my iPhone. The worst problem with EyeTV is a horrendous memory leak. After running a few hours, the whole system slows down to a crawl. After taking a look in Activity Monitor I noticed that EyeConnect was using up over 900MB of real RAM (not just virtual), and that was while it had been doing nothing. I googled a bit and found that the only way to get my RAM back was to delete the file ~/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml, and Force Quit EyeConnect. This will help until you restart the system, after which EyeConnect again will eat up all RAM, so again you will have to delete the xml file.
Elgato's costumer support is of course lousy, they give you a support help ticket as a confirmation but I have yet to get a response from them now after a week. I would not recommend that anybody buys this product yet unless they are truly able to troubleshoot memory leaks.
