NewTeeVee Scoop: Boxee, an Open Source Media Platform
OStatic's sister site NewTeeVee has a very interesting scoop on Boxee, a free, open source software platform that lets users control their media from a PC-connected TV. You can watch movies, listen to music, look at photos and more, all with you remote control. The platform also sports social features for sharing media with others. The software is for Mac and Linux at this point, and, backed by venture capital, goes into alpha testing Monday. You can sign up for alpha testing here, and make sure and check out NewTeeVee's cool screenshots and story.
