Windows Apple, Roku, Google, Boxee.... They're not the only ones gunning for your big screen. Microsoft was arguably the first major company to focus on bringing digital content to your TV with Windows Media Centre, which the Redmond company launched all the way back in 2002. It never caught on, but now, the Seattle Times is reporting that Microsoft is going to make another attempt - by putting Windows Media Centre on a set-top box.

The most recent Apple TV does much more than "stream content purchased on iTunes from your computer." The NetFlix streaming, combined with the ability to buy and stream from iTunes has rendered my cable television connection useless.

I admit the Apple TV was lame when it was released, but its a lot better now.
