We first caught wind of this way back in August of last year, but it looks like the Slingbox Personal Broadcaster will actually be coming out (well, maybe), although the price has gone up to $250, $50 more than what we last reported (but it's still monthly-fee free, which is a big bonus). The Slingbox lets you stream and view TV from your cable, satelliete or DVR box on any computer with a high-speed internet connection. This makes a lot more sense to us than expensive standalone systems like Sony's LocationFree TV (which may not even work). Why lug around an extra screen when you can just use your laptop?
