$50 Roku stick goes HDMI y HDMI with Chromecast ·  LinuxGizmos.com

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.
