can you imagine there would be ROKU Skype Edition? Simple box as we know it today with webcam in front and mic on each side?
I would buy it for everybody in my family!
I've had the exact same thought. It would be a nice addition to the channels.
On the other hand, I guess not everyone would want this, but I personally think it would be awesome. Especially if it could be integrated as a layered application. With the way the current coding of the box works though, I'm not sure that this would be feasible. For example, say you are watching Netflix or listening to Pandora and during this activity, someone wants to speak with you / see you using Skype. I don't think that the would be able to see you online as at that moment, you wouldn't be running the Skype app.... same as on a PC. What I'm suggesting that would potentially make this great would be to somehow be notified on the screen that a Skype call was being received while during an activity, such as during watching Netflix or listening to Pandora.
