I am not very technically inclined, exactly what will this thing do? Can I save wirelessly to my PC instead of a mem card? Can I load roms from my PC to the console?

Thats right, its main function is to load games straight onto the machine from your pc. Not sure about saving games on the PC though, would be a nice feature particularly on the cube.

Yeah, but it looks like you'll have to have a PC nearby and be able to click on the PC to load it.
Not exactly as easy as booting backups off an XBox Hard Drive....
