Roku's 'Streaming Stick'

The already slim and powerful accessory for your television, the Roku has recently introduced a brand new and innovative product that is even smaller and just as powerful. The Streaming Stick is about the size of a standard USB flash drive that plugs directly into a particular kind of HDMI-ish port called MHL (Mobile High-definition) granting you all the streaming capabilities that Roku currently offers with a Zero footprint, no extra cords and controlled with your existing TV remote control. 
Roku has somehow managed to cram an entire Roku's guts into this tiny thing, including the processor, memory, and Wi-Fi antenna. 
There is one catch (of course), the port that it requires, MHL has only been out for three month and is only available on a small number of TVs... Price and availability not yet released.
