Roku Box and the incredible squirting toilet

I got this from Cool Tools blog:

"The Roku box from Netflix allows you to watch movies on your TV whenever you want to, for no extra charge, in DVD quality. It is a tiny thing that sets up in a few minutes. If you have wi-fi in your household it will link up to that so you can put the box near your TV. For achieving such a complex task it has a remarkably simple interface and no-fuss approach, very similar to an iPod. We were watching a movie within ten minutes of opening the shipping box." There is more information here: http://www.roku.com/netflixplayer/order-now/
Also from Cool Tools, the Toto Washlet Toilet. The seat, which will fit most toilets, has a sprayer that cleans you after you go. Some models even come with a dryer, thus eliminating the need for toilet paper. More advanced models will automatically raise their lids when you approach. You can read the Cool Tool blogger's experience with the toilet seat here:

Okay, I see that you do need to have the unlimited plan with Netflix to use this, but I take it the streaming video plays on your screen like an HBO movie--

--so what keeps customers from duping the video like they can with an HBO broadcast? Anything?
