Product Placement: The Slingbox
I'm not the most technically savvy person, but I know what I want. I love my iPod and have become pretty good at using it. Back in the day I was the master of the VCR. I could juggle several daily soaps and some evening programs as well. I embraced the VCR's high tech replacement, the DVR (otherwise known as TIVO) . So when I saw the Slingbox on G4's Attack of the Show I was hooked! I continued to hear great things about it as I tried to justify why I needed it so badly. Thankfully Christmas came and I was saved by my in laws who thought it was cool too.
I have to admit, it is just as cool as I hoped it would be. I can watch my recorded shows on my computer any where I can get an Internet connection. Not only that, I can run my DVR remotely to catch a show I forgot before I left town. Now when I go to Vegas I can watch my stories instead of the four channels they give you in the hotel room.
