Roku SoundBridge

It's clearly the day for non-software toys.

The SoundBridge from Roku is a network music player that plays from iTunes - it doesn't need any custom software of its own. It can work over wired or wireless networks and has a nice display:

SoundBridge M2000

The Roku can also be fed by the open source SlimServer music server. There are two models, one with a six inch display (the M1000, at around $250) and one with a massive twelve inch display that can display four lines of text (the M2000, around $500). Definitely cool toys.
