    Previously we shared that the Vizio Co-Star $99 Dollar Google TV box with built-in support for OnLive Cloud gaming service would be coming soon. We now have additional details. The amazingly priced little device is already available for preorder, and will be available for retail on August 14th. This could be the most successful Google TV yet, especially with the slew of features packed into that affordable price: It's hardware includes two HDMI ports, one USB port, and one Ethernet jack. It's software includes Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Youtube, and OnLive gaming support. Additionally we will likely see support for both XBMC and Plex for your media streaming needs. It's hard to go wrong for just a "Benjamin."

    I was looking at the apps that the Vizio Co-Star will come with and noticed M-GO. I checked out the apps website and all they have are a list of sponsers, a beta sign up, and a link to their press kit http://mgo.com/img/M-GOPressKit_v12.pdf. I looked at the press kit and it doesn't really give much information on what the app really does. Anyone here know more about it?

    Seems like it is a lot like xbmc, but it is hard to tell from all the hype in the press kit.

    What is google? :p

    If this has a gigabit ethernet port, and can play media from the USB port, I might be interested in replacing my WD Live.
