I must be way ahead of the curve because I already have a device that can stream netflix, run boxee, xbmc, act as a media server, etc. It's called a computer. You can get one for very little money these days, even with hdmi output for use as a htpc. They do a lot of cool stuff!
I don't see people blocking google ads. Google is worth a hell of a lot more than shitty companies like doubleclick, so you'd think people would take a hint. Stop being responsible for all those horribly shitty flash ads with sound and flashing colors, and maybe people won't be so annoyed that they have to block your garbage. If it's not going to work for you, go run a business that fits your style, like a used car dealership.
