Boxee Blog » a Boxee Box is coming!

I happened across this little tidbit as I was scrolling through my RSS feeds.  I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t even had a chance to read half of the entries in my feed reader (most days now I’ve been just saying mark all as read).  But this one caught my eye.  Apparently Box[...]
