    In a world of media players and home theatre PCs, Boxee enters the fray with an underbelly of the massively popular XBMC to carve out a niche in its social media playing idea. We get to grips with the alpha, to see if it has the potential to be the media centre we're looking for.

    Sure like we believe that ;)

    Mention it once and I'll forgive you, but twice and either you really are watching Jenna and her friends in 2.5X real size, or you are wishing you were ;)

    The more you know!
