I didn't figure out you could use the Apple TV remote to control the TV's volume until almost a year after we first got one. It's a great feature, but with kids, it's just a shame the remote feels too fragile to use when they're around.
Quite a few of the features I need to try out myself, but I think the biggest barrier to discovering them naturally has been the remotes we use. We have an all-in-one remote and I use the iPhone app from time to time which, despite 3D touch, doesn't match the physical remote feature for feature.

This is quite an odd thing for Google to do if they are not monetizing this information.
Two more things that are odd:
- My purchase history only goes as far back as late 2014 (article cites 2012)
- This only seems to work for Gmail accounts, not
G Suite (business email hosted by Gmail)
Perhaps the last one makes sense and could be part of their ToS but sounds like a feature a business use could make really good use of, despite how shady it seems.

Arrested Westeros brings Game of Thrones screen caps together with Arrested Development captions. I came across the blog long before I had even seen Game Of Thrones and found it funny then, but with a bit more context it's even funner.
As it's updated after each show and with the finale tonight, beware of spoilers!
