Slingbox love affair

For valentines day I have a new love but don't tell my SO.
In my line of work, I get to play with a lot of great gadgets but I have to say that the most amazing gadget that I have seen in years has to be the Slingbox pro. Simple enough, plug it into your set top box at home, plug it into your home router and you can watch tv and recorded programs anywhere with an Internet connection or anywhere in your wifi neighborhood with a laptop.

I plugged it in and it worked with no fuss, didn't even realize how simple ethernet plug and play was. Holy crap, this thing is awesome. Keep in mind that I have a high def DVR at home with tons of recorded content and now I can grab all of it on the road and at the office (CNBC mostly ;).

This is a highly recommended product if you are away from your home a lot like me. If you know my personal email address, I'll even let you try watching and controlling my TV - just drop me a line.

This is a little gem. I have to travel a lot as well, and I am heading of to Bestbuy to pick on up! Thanks for the tip.

hmm, looks deceptively similar to Bell Express Vu's remote.
