Janko Roettgers at NewTeeVee today wrote: Boxee is going to switch its integrated web browser from Mozilla’s Gecko to Webkit with its next major update, I was told by Boxee Lead Apps Developer and Community Evangelist Rob Spectre. The switch is an attempt to make full use of HTML5 within Boxee, but it should also help with accessing a wider array of video content that’s not yet available through dedicated Boxee apps. Since its first release, Boxee has offered a web browser through its “Boxee Browser” application that enables users to navigate to any site on the web. However, the implementation has been little more than a stop-gap measure to offer access to sites like Hulu.com, which briefly blocked the ability to access its videos directly through Boxee in early 2009. The current browser is based on Mozilla’s Gecko layout engine, which is also used by Firefox. Its implementation is fairly buggy, and many sites don’t display correctly within Boxee.

XpanD is unveiling its Universal 3D Glasses at IFA in Berlin. The glasses, which are available in four colors and different shapes and sizes to meet any 3D enthusiast’s unique style and size, are solving the biggest 3D challenge in consumer electronics – the incompatibility between different 3DTV manufacturers. With XpanD Universal 3D Glasses, anyone can experience the most engaging and dynamic 3D technology with any 3D-ready television display in virtually any environment. While retailers have struggled with selling 3D glasses that are only compatible with a single brand of 3D-ready television, the XpanD Universal 3D Glasses are compatible with any 3D-ready display, regardless of brand. This “must-have” technology is a tremendous benefit to retailers, as the Universal 3D Glasses will help drive sales of 3D-ready displays. XpanD did not announce pricing or a release date.
