This is an update of a deal I first wrote about back in June. With the holidays upon us, it's the perfect time for this "rerun."
Through the end of next week, and while supplies last, Roku is bundling the Roku HD box, a six-month Hulu Plus subscription, and an HDMI cable for $79.99 shipped. Those items would normally cost you around $128 if purchased separately.

If indeed Amazon is working on releasing "Browsers," it would be … Read more
