Boxee beta shows some serious promise

Boxee Beta, not only a new look but interesting app library with even more niche partners. Does seem to be as beautiful as Plex or XBMC but there's no doubt its getting better and looking like something worth using now.

But the really exciting news is that Dlink will be one of the first hardware vendors to feature Boxee software on there sunken cube shape boxes, which will be available from the start of next year. Costs are close to $200 but lacks a internal hard drive. It does come with USB, HDMI, optical, ethernet and composite video connections. Users can surf the Web via an included browser, but doing so won't be a great experience for users, Boxee executives admitted. An RF remote is also included, so that users can access the box from anywhere in the house.
