No celebration of great products from small businesses would be complete without this Santa Clara, Calif.-based startup. The Vudu turns web video content, specifically movies, into a form most any TV can understand. Just run a broadband connection to the back of the box, plug in your TV through any of the supported standards, and poof, you're watching The Bourne Identity on your TV. Better yet, the Vudu has given the remote control a much needed make over. Considering that Hollywood is finally stepping out on the Web -- every content player is now racing to get online -- the Vudu is setting itself up to be the media box of the moment.
