It's called apple tv

and nope, cannot watch normal tv.
Can stream movies and tv over the internet or from a pc or mac.
Cannot currently jailbrake it, not laggy at all.
Lots of fun if you have a big movie or tv collection on your computer.

I'll never understand people who want to buy something without even the beginnings of any inklings as to what it does.

It's such a shame Apple hasn't put up a web page explaining the products they selling in great deal, complete with technical specs and in many cases video tutorials. Ah well.

It actually does have a usb. It's a micro usb to usb 2.0 connection.
