OK, we've got a hot little device to give away this week, the top-of-the-line Roku Player, the XDS.
This is Roku's answer to Apple TV and some might argue that it's currently the superior media player (read CNET editor John Falcone's comparison). If you're willing to give up a few features, you can get the entry-level Roku HD, which retails for only $59.99. And it's worth mentioning that Roku recently announced that Hulu Plus will be coming to its selection of channels, which already includes Netflix streaming. (Read the full review).
Normally, this Roku XDS would cost you about $100, but we're giving one away gratis.
So, how do you try to win it? Let me enumerate the basic rules. Please read them carefully; there will be a test.
