I do like the idea, but am hoping something similar will eventually come 
around with some dedicated display chip embedded - maybe even something 
that could do hdmi out if it doesn't make it too expensive.  I suspect 
that a USB->video adapter would be quite a load on the CPU.  Maybe 
someone will hack a full linux onto the $99 Roku netflix box.
