Netflix Delay on Boxee Box Gets Awkward

Despite earlier promises that Boxee's fledgling web-to-TV hardware device, the Boxee Box, would offer a Netflix app by the end of last year, the startup company has faced another setback. "We're in a bit of an awkward spot at the moment," Boxee wrote on its blog early Tuesday, and went on to explain that Boxee is still not offering a Netflix app on its hardware due to security issues. "The [Netflix] app works. It's been done for awhile now," Andrew Kippen, vice president of marketing for Boxee, told Digits. "What we have not yet met is Netflix's security requirement which requires sweeping changes to the underlying Boxee platform." He added that the company was "working to ensure that third party apps and developers can't tamper with the Boxee Box to gain root access to the system or tamper with other apps." Boxee has touted itself as an open-source system and says the company values the ability for anyone to build an application on Boxee.

Ecotality, Cisco connect Internet-savvy EV charger

Cisco Systems and Ecotality, an electric-vehicle charging station company, are collaborating to make EVs part of a home energy-management system. Ecotality's Blink home EV charging station will connect to Cisco's Home Energy Controller, a touch-screen device for managing home energy, as part of early electric vehicle trials with consumers. The integration will let electric car owners schedule charging to take advantage of preferential rates offered by utilities for electric vehicles, typically after 9 p.m. From the Cisco home energy dashboard, there is an application to monitor and program how an electric car is charged, according to the companies. Charging an electric car can pull as much power as an entire home consumes, utilities executives say, so consumers have an incentive to charge at off-peak times. But the system is sophisticated enough to communicate with utilities to get discounts beyond the EV tariff, Ecotality CEO Jonathan Read said in an interview.

Automating Your Home with UPB

A few weeks ago, I was preparing to order a bunch of switches for my house, and was trying to decide the best way to go. I had 8 switches in my last house that were Simply-Automated, so I wanted to stick with those for consistent look/feel. I noticed though, from talking to people and reading posts, that there was misinformation out there. I decided that, now that I'm 2/3rds of the way through a 60+ device install, I'd share what I know and the things I've learned in the process about the Simply-Automated line and different configuration and programming options you may encounter.
