This attractive storage compartment for both the Apple TV and its accompanying remote control is made of solid wood and aims to remedy a very common drawback of digital hardware: it often weighs so little that it’s hard to keep in place. I find that this is true of lots of network hardware: my cable modem, for instance, is so physically sleight that it gets nudged out of place by the inflexibility of its own coaxial cable. The weight of the bloc, along with the grips attached to its bottom, are intended to prevent that kind of slipping.
Blocs come in cherry, hard maple and walnut. You can buy yours at Blocs.tv.+
