The gadget to go buy

I mentioned Roku two years ago, and it is still one of my favorite gadgets. It keeps getting cheaper, better, and more flexible. It is a tiny little box that connects to your high-speed Internet connection and your TV and then streams video from numerous sources. My favorite is Netflix, but there are lots of choices including Amazon, YouTube, Hulu Plus.


Check out www.roku.com for more information. There are three versions and the most expensive is only $99. DVDs will soon be dead. This type of device will be what drives video on demand. Right now I think think this is a much better choice than either Google TV or AppleTV.
