Mr. Steed's 6th Grade Computer Class Blog
A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

April 22nd, 2010 Sponge

CES 2010 unveiled a revolutionary item: The Boxee Box. Boxee gives users a single browser to access all the photos, video and music on their computer hard drives, along with a wide range of television shows, movies and songs from sites like Hulu, NetFlix, YouTube, CNN.com and CBS.com and show them DIRECTLY ON YOUR TV. Will a device like this give people what they want; an opportunity to get rid of their cable or satellite and watch what they want on the channels they want ON-DEMAND? Or will people hold on to their cable or satellite services because it’s too much of a hassle to connect a computer to your TV? (You must write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

  1. i think that people will change there cable for the boxee box. its because it has more channels. or cuz its better. you dont got to buy the channels. or because it saves you money.

  2. they will change to the boxee . it has better channels. you can watch movies. its cool looking. it save’s money. the boxee is better.

  3. IK THEY WILL CHANGE TO THE BOXEE

  4. most likey tha people of our days like tech. and will like to work with a new service then cable so ii believe that people will geth there cable turned off nd us this new program. Also i feel that wen using new things that come out gives u a chance to try new things out nd also upgrade from your stone ages…LOL

  5. I think it will change. They can get better channels. They can also get better service. It will be better for everyone to upgrade. Some people cant afford it.

  6. i tihkn that they do it like change there cable boxes because it might hve better channels you may watch movies and save money

  7. I think I that people wil dicth there cable for the boxee box.It is an ingeinus invention.It a good thing anyway. It very awesome the only thing that’s wrong is that companies that are on tv will lose some jobs.They will need to get channels on the boxee box.

  8. I think people will go with the newer technology. They dont like the older stuff. Except for the people are old. The kids want the newest stuff to make them look cool. I personally think that it would be better any way. Because it prolly makes the cable look like what they had in the old ages.

  9. Well I think that people might change there cable. In the box you see almost everything that has to do with entertainment. You can watch Youtube and a whole lot of things. The only thing is, how much does that cost? I’m guessing it is going to be expensive. Also I’m guessing the download speed has to do with the internet connection. Although not everyone is going to like it. That’s just how things are.

  10. i Think ThaT iT wiLL qive Them whaT They wanT. buT Then aqain iT miqhT noT. iT may be To much TroubLe To hook up. peopLe miqhT jusT sTay wiTh Their requLar sysTem. some rich pepoLe wanT The more expensive newer TechnoLoqy .

  11. yes. People will give up there cable for this. Some of the reasons they willl is you can watch things and listen to music. Most people like getting everything new in technogly. This is why they might turn of there cable.

  12. I think people will higher some one to go trough the hassle of the wires if they have to. People love to save money. Even more then new things. just because of a hassle dose not stop people from better technology. people love t.v.

  13. I believe that with the introduction to the “boxee” will come a revolutionary upgrade in the way that we look at the accessibility of our purchased or owned media. Having music, video, and other files stored into one space…capable of being played or displayed on your television set, will be something that many of us will find fairly conveniant and interesting. I do believe that the cable and on-demand users will end up switching to “boxee” throughout the future.

  14. If someone thinks this Boxxee box as too much of a hassle their crazy. Less wires and cable and less things to deal with. I would love to have one of these things/ I bet one of the reasons some people don’t have this is because of the cost.

  15. i think they would just keep the cable or satilet. i had both. i would keep it. it is more esayer. and less stuff to worry about.

  16. I DONOT NOW WHAT TO SAY DECAUSE THAT WAS RILLY DOME. AND BORING SO WHAT ARE THAY GOING TO DO MAKE A GAME THAT IS CALL THE BOX THERE IS ONE THE XBOX. WHAT ARE THAY DOING I DID NOT GET IT. WE DO NOT NEED MORE GAMES THERE IS ENOFE GAMES IN THIS WORD. PLAY STASHIN2 PLAY STASHIN3 XBOX XBOX360 PSP DES IDES ANTIDO64 GAMES ON THE COMPUTERS.

  17. I DO NOT NOW WHAT TO SAY BECAUSE IT WAS DOME. AND IT WAS BORING WHAT ARE THERE TRYING TO DO. MAKE MORE GAMES WE HAVE ENUFE GAMES. WE GOT XBOX XBOX360 PLAY STASHIN2 PLAY STASHIN3 DES IDES PSP GAMES THAT ARE ON COMPUTERS ANTIDOW64. IF WE GET ENEY MORE GAMS WE ARE GOING TO LIVE ON THEM AND IT MITE BE FUN BUT WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO RILL LISE.IF THERE IS AND WORD GO OUT THERE AND HAVE FUN AND WORK AND MAKE MUONY.

  18. ~*i think tht we should just keepp on-demanddd becausee its too comlicated and old people wantt itt thenn it would be too highhh teachh fourr oluddd peopleee twoo figuree outt howw to usee itt! and i thinkk its kindaa stupiddd beacuse if yuu have a computerrr and yuu have a t.v thenn yy dontt yuuu justt gett onn thuu computerr and watchh t.vee seprate!!*~

    ♥always,
    JaZzY♥

  19. i think that we should just keepp on-demand becausee its too comlicated and old people want it then it would be too high teach four older people. And it will be better for aot of people and that it will be alot differcult if you change it.

  20. I’m puzzled. do you plug it into your computer? T.V? or both? but i think people will buy it. because people will buy anything. whateva the price. and it sounds easy, whateva it is :/

  21. well it would not be such a biggie for real all you have to have really is internet. well lots of peolpe like on demand instead of getting on their computer. my granny is like that a little. it sounds easy to do this thing to me. plug your t.v to your computer and you get lots of movies and videos or something like that. it would be so useful but not. it’s like half and half, 50/50 well it seems like you only get movies. if it was me i would keep cable or the box. i dont think people would give up their cable for this thing. it soud like lots of money coming out of your pocket if you buy this. it looks high tome.
