How to Buy a Future-Proof TV
Pick a Brain
Boxee, Apple TV, Google TV: They all have their strengths. Boxee can browse the Web, play a lot of TV shows online for free and do apps like Netflix and Vudu On-Demand. Apple TV has Netflix, too, though few other apps. However, it adds AirPlay connectivity, which is killer with an iPhone or iPad. Google TV hasn't proven itself to be any better than most smart TVs. Try all of them out in a store before buying, even if you plan on ordering online.
