+1 for Plex, also have it for iphone and android. I use this more than anything and was the main reason I got a Roku.
Also installed the Roku controller on my phone for when I'm too lazy to get up and find it.

I also buy lots of stuff from Amazon so Prime is worth it- I'm looking at plastic Ball jar lids and the food saver vaccuum sealer adapter for Ball jars, where else do you find that kind of stuff?

I keep an eye on Slickdeals for when Amazon credit pops up, and use them on already discounted albums or rentals. So far five albums and a few movie rentals on Amazon for $0.

I love the iPhone controller. I freak my kids out by changing the channels or pausing their shows while I'm "surfing".

It's nice too if you have more than one Roku you can switch back and forth. Only problem is you have to look at the buttons because you can't feel them on a phone screen.

I just got the Nas Banov Roku remote for my phone. I haven't used it yet, but it instantly connected with my Roku, and it has a keyboard option that should make searches much easier.
I also like that I won't have to point at the box.

Falling Skies on amazon is definitely holding my attention.

I use Tune In a lot to stream radio stations. The NPR affliate I listen to most is not the Detroit one, but the one an hour away in Ann Arbor, and the terrestrial signal is crappy, and the Canadian Public Radio Station I also like is encroached by another station as well. So I just use the Roku for them instead.
