Of Course: The 360 Edition

You know when you hold off on making a tech purchase because you're worried that if you jump too quickly you'll regret it? Then after years of waiting you make that purchase only to hear of something better, faster, cheaper imediately afterwards but you happily discover it's not quite what you where looking for in the first place? Happens to me all the time. Here's the latest example.

After years of wanting a media extender for the living room (and wanting to remove the sneaknet of DVDs)  I sprang for a XBOX 360 (at an amazing price I might add) for just this task. Unfortunately being back ordered it has not arrived yet.

A couple of days later I'm listening to Window's Weekly # 84. Host Paul Thurrott mentions his pick for a cheap media device to watch video in the living room. Of course I say the XBOX 360… nope it's the WD TV HD Media Player!?!

I was a little bumbed until I discovered that the WD TV HD Media Player doesn't steam and you still have to sneakernet stuff on USB harddrives or keys. Still it's a cool product just not what I'm looking for.

Thank goodness.
