goto11 (116604) writes "I am an occasional Boxee user on my HTPC at home and just received notification of pre-order availability of "The Boxee Box by D-Link." I checked out the product description and am sad to see how their "team" (if they have one) just doesn't get it. I won't even talk about the almost-smooth, but often klunky UI that all-too-frequently requires me to bust out my keyboard (and apparently the "Boxee Box" has a keyboard on the remote, so I assume it's the same as my HTPC), the physical design is YAFF (yet another form-factor) that won't fit in my media cabinet. But what's most sad of all is their wannabe-haxor-marketspeak, "Get lost in Internetland. It just got easier, and comfortablier." Or how about this gem, "You're [sic] friends will be impressed, or jealous. Probably jealous." Barf." Link to Original Source
