For the gadget happy out there, did you ever see a gadget that you said to yourself "I have to get that when it is available for Mac"? I saw this article at Toms today for the slingbox. I'd be interested in anyones practical experiences with it. I am not affiliated with Slingbox in any way, just an interested gadgeteer .

Pretty wild device. I'm going to look into it a bit more. Thanks

EDIT... I found some info on your question.
From this site: http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000933050954/

What about a Mac version?

We donít have any announcement yet. We intend to release it in the next few months. Sometimes working with Apple involves getting our Slingstream technology to fully work on a Mac, which means we might need some cooperation from the company that holds the keys to that. That company is not necessarily the easiest to partner with. But itís great to see the demand from the consumers, because that gives us a lot more ammunition when we approach them. So I actually love the Mac guys complaining and pounding on it, so I urge them to keep it up.

Hope this helps.

Great article TJ, thanks! Hopefully demand from the Apple laptop users out there will speed things up.

None so far. MY wife is going away this week and will be using it a lot. I'll check with her to see if she has any problems.
