Brix

If you'd like a really small, but powerful pc, how about a Brix?  http://goo.gl/wv5dsS

I'm trying a G-Box Midnight MX2 from Matricom.  It works great for my XBMC-based media center.  I've tried several, but this little box works the best for XBMC.  Still prefer the Roku for most of the internet TV and music.

Windows 8.1 Update

Disregard the previous blog about the Windows 8.1 "train wreck".  Turns out that an app called "Bins" does not play well with the update.  Uninstalling it solved the problem.

Don't Install Windows 8.1 - Yet.

Always anxious to update my operating systems to the latest, so I tried it last night.  The update to 8.1 has resulted in MANY applications errors.  I can foresee many hours of effort in trying to get these resolved.  My advice.  Stay away from 8.1 for awhile.  Windows 8.0 was working just fine.  These new improvements are a train wreck.
