The Popcorn Hour a-100 network media player is now available for pre-order on their site.
For $179 you get a box that you connect to your network via ethernet cable and then stream just about anything at 1080p via HDMI to your TV.
You can also add a hard drive of your own to the a-100 and then send it off to download stuff via bittorrent, look at youtube, flickr etc.
It’s a good gadget for people that don’t have a dedicated media pc.
