Some things I receive and bought for other people, I'll talk about my thoughts on them.
What the Sony Streaming Media box comes down to is a glorified Youtube player... I'll look into its Amazon Prime service next, but I think I have to register the device on Sony's website.
My initial reaction: it sucks, save up your money for a PS3 or Western Digital TV.
Speaking of PS3, with all the great sales, I ended up buying a Playstation Move, the bundle came with Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 and the Move controllers with Sharpshooter for $100. This is a great deal, those two games retails for about $80 already. Anyway, I bought the Everybody Dance for the Move. It was fun, but you quickly realize how small the 40 song playlist is!
The game is really geared towards younger kids, so, all the pop songs are here. I was surprise to see Republica's "Ready to Go" on the playlist. The other surprising "hit" song on the list is Duck Sauce's "Barbara Streisand". This isn't the original mix, it's been re-done for the American audience (so maybe they didn't like their original mix of the song?)

So hope you have a happy holiday and looking forward to the new year.
