I've written about the Slingbox. But now I have one. And it's awesome.
I only mention this because, as with the early days of TiVo, I'm surprised by how many people have never heard of Slingbox.
I paid for my Slingbox myself, and I get no compensation for saying this: it took just a few effortless minutes to set up, and it does exactly what it's supposed to.
Earlier I had a little time to kill between appointments, so I relaxed outside Starbucks, watching my TiVo at home. How cool is that?
Of course for now it only works with my Windows laptop, but Mac support is coming later this year, and Windows Mobile software is already here.
If you're thinking about getting this thing, get this thing.
