News from Ceton about its upcoming hardware plans has us excited for the fall while XBMC is doing its part to extend the HTPC experience by supporting Android. Finally, a slick Blu-ray box set for the Marvel / Disney movies has us considering whether to push the buy button, although we can all agree that selecting “play” is the best option for you right now.
