Just in time for the holidays, Roku has announced an all new Roku Player…sort of. Actually, the HD-XR model just adds a USB port (not enabled) and support for 802.11n to the HD version of the box. You can grab one now for $129.99 or opt for the now discounted SD version for $79.99. For some the $30 for the HD-XR version might not be worth it, but for those streaming users that want to move their box further from their router it might make sense, and who knows, maybe that currently disabled USB port will actually facilitate not only local play from an attached hard drive but enable it to be a NAS.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
