This Bizarre Media Streamer Is Your Deal of the Day

Illustration for article titled This Bizarre Media Streamer Is Your Deal of the Day

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.

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]

I think you missed this...probably the most I've ever seen off of new iPads...

Best Buy is taking up to 30% off second and third gen iPads. They have third gen 16 GB versions for $315. Third gens with 64 gigs are a tad over $500, and ones with 3G cell data are about $540. Pretty nice discount, if you ask me.
