Boxee Box Matures; Another Look At the Platform 56

Posted by timothy

MojoKid writes "Though D-Link actually started shipping the Boxee Box media player back in Q4 of last year, it was obvious that it needed a bit more polish to offer a reasonably satisfying experience. Since that time, Boxee has released a number of firmware and platform updates that enhance the device and bring new services, like full 1080p movie content from Vudu and what could be considered critical mass in mainstream movie rentals, Netflix. The Boxee Box has had time to mature and this full walk-through of the system shows it's actually an interesting alternative to competitive products in this class of device, like Apple TV, Google TV and Roku. There's still lots of work to be done in fleshing out services and content but the Boxee platform has a bit more polish behind it now."

    Of course not - the ignorant masses don't know what IPv6 is yet, so companies will sell IPv4-only devices as long as possible. In a couple years, they will be obsolete and useless, and the masses will have to throw them away and buy new ones. Why would you let someone buy your product only once when you can force them to buy it twice?
