1) There is very little memory on the board. Just enough to buffer a few minutes of video if your bandwidth gets congested temporarily. Just enough flash memory for the software. Instant viewing is done by buffering the minimum video the box thinks it needs to avoid interruption due to variable bit rate encoding.
Rediculous of course it will its not like the Internet is too power intensive...
Let's just sum it up with the fact that the box can't do. It doesn't have a real CPU, no memory to speak, and no space to store the programs needed for web surfing. You could make a text only browser perhaps but no one would use it. This has been discussed to many times before however. See the quoted threads above.
Nun sacciu, nun vidi, nun ceru e si ceru durmiv.
I know nothing, I see nothing, I wasn't there,
and if I was there, I was asleep.
