Leaked HTC One cover turns your smartphone into a Lite Brite | The Verge.

New HTC smartphone can display information through an array of Leds

Interesting comparison between Roku stick and Chromecast.

Linuxgizmos definitely votes for Roku stick although we feel there is some bias comparing devices which were released within a year of each other. Roku is definitely a player to watch. What we find interesting here is that Roku is releasing a series of products which are adding value to each other: the stick, a full fledge remote, iPhone and Android remote control apps.
