    I would really like a good podcast player.  Something that combines the beautiful interface of MediaBrowser with the reliability of a good RSS reader. MediaBrowser’s RSS reader is far too unreliable and ends up rejecting a large number of my favorite podcasts. Oh and Pandora FTW!

    I’d like a plugin for old arcade games.  I know there are emulators out there but all of that is a mess and finding them is a pain.  I’d like to be able to select “Arcade Games” from the 10′ menu, select a game and just play.
