I was on a call yesterday with Ken Devine, CTO of WNET in NYC, who related his amazing experiences with Slingbox's new mobile client called SlingPlayer™ Mobile (free if you buy a Slingbox before Apr. 26th and $30 thereafter). This morning, I ran across a short video review of it on CNET. You really have to check this out. Since it can control your TiVo (and other set-top devices -- even DVD players), you should be able to view or listen to anything accessible from your TiVo, including photos, your music collection, and videos and podcasts downloaded from services like Open Media Network (OMN's TiVo sync'ing is close). Of course, then there's the problem of me hijacking the TiVo remotely on one of my trips while my wife is home trying to watch paint drying on Home & Garden TV. But beyond disruption to her, it's disruption to our profession that we should be considering. Thanks for the tip, Ken.
