IQ-tips: the Slingbox

David K. Israel

Not sure if I'm the only one who missed this smart-sounding gizmo's debut, but did you know there's a relatively inexpensive box that lets you watch TV on your PC called the Slingbox?

Traveling on business and itchin' for your favorite home town sports teams? Or something less glamorous, like your local community cable station? (and if so, what's wrong with you?) Well, if you've got a broadband connection, the Slingbox will allow you to tune in wherever you are, whenever you want. It even lets you access your DVR!

Check out their website for more info. Oh, and if you're wondering whether or not it's legal: I've seen it being slung over at Circuit City and Best Buy, so apparently it is.
