You say you don't have a smart TV but would like one? Meet Roku's media streamer on a stick – no more set-top box. Also among today's top new gadgets is an overlay that turns an iMac into a touchscreen PC, an innovative wireless iPhone charging system and four compact Epson all-in-one printers.
Instead of jacking in yet another box to your TV or AV receiver, Roku has created a media streamer on a stick ($100) – you simply stick it into an HDMI jack on an HDTV that supports the MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) specification – you can check this linked list to see if you have an MHL-compatible TV. This is a full Roku media streamer, now including the Vudu video service, and it'll come with a remote control bigger than the stick when it goes on sale later this month.
