Provided there’s a nearby Ethernet or WiFi connection, these two tiny set-top boxes will open a world of TV, movies, music and streaming content either from their respective content libraries or through third-party services like Netflix and many others.  While very similar in general appearance and functionality, the approach taken by Roku and Apple in this space today is like night and day.

iTunes logo.jpgRingtones aren’t new, but they’re easy to distinguish anytime you hear them. That catchy hook or cool opening part of a song can be the best way to move away from the standard ringtones available on the iPhone and give your contacts some personality. You can do this pretty easily by creating your own ringtones for free using the music you already have.
