Orb Networks: Get yer media anywhere, at least until they get sued

Peter Rojas
Orb Networks

Probably only a matter of time until they feel the cold, hard wrath of the RIAA, the MPAA, and the television networks, but next month Orb Networks is introducing a service where for ten bucks a month you'll be able to stream/remotely access the audio, video, and digital photo collection on your PC to any web-enabled device like a cellphone, PDA, or laptop. Nothing we haven't seen before (SlingBox, anyone?), and why these guys scored an AP story we're not sure, but Orb Networks claims the service will work with copy-protected files and will also stream live TV (sort of like Sony's LocationFree TV). We won't get into the mechanics of how crappy remotely accessing your DVD collection can be, but let's just say that you won't be ditching your iPod anytime soon.
