The Rise of Linux In In-Vehicle Infotainment
...titled "QNX and Windows Embedded Automotive Market Share to Drop to 69% with Open Source Linux/GENIVI Grabbing 20% of Automotive OS Shipments by end of 2018," can be found here.
Excerpt: "ABI Research forecasts that the number of OEM-installed connected car telematics systems will increase from around 7.8 million at the end of 2012 to 46.8 million units globally by the end of 2018, with Linux/GENIVI platforms accounting for an increasing percentage of shipments during the period. At present, QNX Software and Microsoft together account for around 75 to 80% of the car-infotainment OS market. However, questions remain about the long-term future of proprietary automotive OSes. 'The automotive industry is set for a number of dramatic paradigm shifts,' said principal analyst, Gareth Owen. 'The adoption of open source platforms, such as GENIVI is just one example. In this regard, the automotive industry mirrors trends in mobile'."

Celebrate Yuri Gagarin's 1951 Flight Into Space

Which is better: Boxee Box or Roku?
...that should say "sub-$100 Roku box," not "sub-$199 Roku box"
Roku Now Licensing its Media Player Design
Roku's website says its device consumes 6W peak and 4W in standby. In contrast, Logitech told me their Review's peak power consumption is 36W, but was unable comment on standby modes. There's more than 20W difference there, but the key is probably how well the Review does in standby mode, since when you're watching TV you're using a lot more power than that anyhow.

Move Over BoxeeBox, Here Comes PopBox
The problem is the DRM. Netflix relies on the latest MS Silverlight. Apparently the security processor embedded in these STBs' multimedia-oriented CPUs is capable of handling Netflix's requirements. So yes, theoretically it should be possible to get Netflix streaming working on Ubuntu........... eventually :-/
Boxee vs. Zinc vs. Hulu

Latest word from a Boxee spokesperson is that 'netflix currently do[es] not support running on linux, so we can't do it right now. we've been assured they will make it compatible early next year, so rest assured we will.'
