The Boxee Box came out in November 2010, which is eons ago in gadget time. Since then, there has been a new Apple TV, two new flagship Rokus, and even a new Boxee. The king of the streamer world is now the $100 Roku 3. Still—this absurdly shaped open-source streamer has quite the following, and that's because it's the last major set top box to embrace a maximalist, open philosophy: wanna plug in a hard drive and play some Xvid files? Sure! Channels for MLB.tv, or Netflix or Youtube? Got 'em. Hey, want to catch some over-the-air television? You can do that with a $50 dongle.
The Boxee has a surprising following, and still sells for close to the original MSRP on Amazon — an impressive feat for a geriatric gadget. In fact, there's quite a bit that the older Boxee Box can do that the newer Boxee TV can't. That's why Boxee enthusiasts are psyched about the current sale on Newegg: after applying the code EMCXTVL57, a refurbished Boxee Box (with a one-year warranty) is $95 — sure, that is basically the same price as a Roku 3, but there's a very special type of geek who'd much rather have the Boxee.

A Damn Cheap USB 3.0 Portable HD
LaCie is a respected hard drive enclosure maker, but I don't know much about the LaCie Rikki. However, considering that portable hard drives are pretty much commoditized anyway, you should take a look: a 1TB portable hard drive for $65 is a steal. [Amazon]
