Wireless connectivity remains optional; Western Digital continues to show no love for LastFM, Slacker, or Rhapsody; you still can&rsquo;t rent movies from iTunes or Unbox; and you still can&rsquo;t access Hulu. We&rsquo;re also disappointed that the UI still doesn&rsquo;t inform you of a media file&rsquo;s codec, bit depth, or sampling rate. Some will dismiss those shortcomings as inconsequential, but we think they&rsquo;re important enough to withhold our Kick Ass award."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1277338969.usr10.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></em></p><p>ISO support is pretty cool, this is something I wish the 360 or PS3 would support and to my knowledge natively do not. &nbsp;But as the article points out, still a long way to go until it becomes an uber media box.&nbsp;<em>&nbsp;</em></p>
