    Looks amazing. Got to admit that if it is anywhere as good as it sounds or looks I will be VERY jelouse.

    I particulartly like the sound of:

    "automatic IMDb and AllMusic lookup for movie, TV and music info"

    Oh well, stuck with the WDTV Live now. Though i still love the love the little tyke! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy.gif)

    It's the basic rule of most things, and especially electronic gadgets/computers - it will be obsolete the instant you buy it! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) You just have to let it run through its lifecycle and then get a new one. Or get one now if you have dough to spare! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

    If WD added Netflix or Hulu it'd be a done deal.

    No need for Netflix or Hulu, just get a usenet account and you're good to go. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

    Yeh, but it still offers something the Live does not. I've thought about getting usenet access, but it is a little too pricey if I add on for the broadband I am already paying for... Not to mention, I probably hit my monthly bandwidth cap wi9hin the first week...!

    you are so right. give it a year, and more then likely, it'll be TOTALLY obsolete. great way of putting it WDUser. =]
