Intel doesn't want to supply these things, they do things like this to show other vendors there is a market it for it, then let others take over. They're just waiting for the NUC and now the compute stick.

So I'm confident other vendors will eventually bring this about next year.

To show other vendors there is a market for it, Intel has to sell some sticks of their own - otherwise, how to demonstrate a demand?
For HTPC use, I'm their target audience, and I don't understand how should I use it. HDMI to TV, microUSB to charger, and then? I'm left with one full-size USB input and Wifi. And I need 1) remote control 2) free input for local media. At least. Given that its main selling point is being a PC, I may want to plug webcam there, too.

Then don't use local media?
I mean even if you do use local media, how do you access that media on another PC/HDTV?
Or attach a Hub? No one is stopping you from doing so.

And it isn't ONLY for HTPC use. It's also just a quick PC to take around with you. Going to a hotel and still want something quick and handy? You have a full PC on something that could slip in your pocket.

There are a ton of usages for this, you simply are trying to find ways it won't work, rather than thinking "Ok, maybe I need another device for this task."

Although the fact that you're using local media is still mind boggling to me, but well I also have around 30TB of media so local media and using external hard drives is a joke.

Edit: Not to mention you could use your smartphone as a remote. Not something I personally would do, but many users do it with Chromecast and love it.
Like the naysayers of the tablet when that was first introduced, you seem adept at finding cases it won't work rather than cases it will work in.
