Roku is likely to move away from its longtime numerical naming scheme (Roku 1, Roku 2, Roku 3, Roku 4) when the company next updates its product lineup sometime this fall. Instead, according to Zatz Not Funny, the lineup will switch over to names like "Roku Express" and "Roku Premiere" with the next hardware refresh.

|Mr. Robot’s mobile game is about the power and danger of texting - |
As I mentioned when it launched, Exfiltration (as I’ll call it, because I’m not adopting Mr. Robot’s 1337 h4xx0r naming convention) is a conspiracy-heavy game that runs over the course of a week, set toward the end of Mr. Robot’s first season. The thing is, Mr. Robot is best when it admits that Elliot is wrong, and that treating people as the sum of what they show you online is a shallow, adolescent view of the world.
