BabelTV: web browser, word processor, and PVR all in one box

Babel TVBabelTV is a new company offering an all-in-one set top box in the UK The box acts as a FreeView tuner, personal video recorder, and web browser. In other words, you can watch web video, live, or recorded TV.

Basically, there's a PC under the hood, which means you can also run applications for word processing, e-mail, and media playback.

The BabelTV doesn't need a huge hard drive, because all of your files are actually stored on a central server. When you need to access a file, a temporary copy is made on your set top box. This makes it easy to recover your files if your box is broken or stolen.

While you can put together a full fledged media center PC for under $1000, at £295 ($602), the BabelTV looks like an appealing option for UK customers.
