When it comes to the popularity of streaming media devices, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) ranks last in the list that includes Roku, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). After tracking the digital streaming market over the past year, Parks Associates says that Roku is the king in the U.S. digital streaming scene. Roku sold far more devices in the year under review than any of its competitors, but Google is a formidable challenger with its Chromecast.
