Default Just a note to boxee team

keep the focus on one physical product and make it better and better. stick with D-link and make the product better rather than keep jumping to other ventures...isn't it the same reason now the boxee software for pc is not that good...keep changing priority for a business is not good.
my 2 cents!

I can't imagine that Boxee's design team is going to make a product specific for the Iomega device. Same software. Different hardware. Different hardware manufacturer.

That's my understanding as well. Same chip, therefore same software though there may be additional bits for any Iomega specific hardware items.

Agree with Darci and Nomad....Boxees primary focus is the software, the hardware is up to the specific vendors....There are porbably minor differences in the software, but what Boxee is trying to do is have the 1 multi-platform software to deal with. So that any changes\upgrades they do are minor and can be implemented without much trouble........

make sure your first phsical product is the best in market before jumping around, so many complaints now adays on bb, so if you can't handle it at this moment as a business, step back a bit and stop sending half/o.k products to market and then deal with customer complaints...not a good business decision.

so till Boxee Box is perfect , no other product should come to the market !

Dude, the firmware for the Iomega will be near identical if not identical to what you get on the Boxee Box so they'll be moving forward with Iomega and any other platform with same chipset.

Customers never get to decide these sorts of things short of complete rejection by the market (e.g. GoogleTV).
