Sling Media recently unveiled two new version of its TV streaming devices that let you watch TV from pretty much anywhere on a computer, tablet or smartphone.
The Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 bridge your set-top box or DVR to the Internet so you can view your media. Both are capable of 1080p.
The lower cost Slingbox 350 connects via Ethernet and composite video cable. It is priced around $180. The $300 Slingbox 500 adds Wi-Fi and HDMI connectivity.
I'm testing these on the iPhone, iPad and my Android tablet. In addition to those, Slingbox supports Windows Phone and the Kindle Fire. The requisite SlingPlayer app costs $14.99.
I'd love to hear your experiences with Slingbox.

Peter Rojas of gdgt brings up one of the best points I've seen this week. Where is the offline caching for popular video services?
Rojas compares Hulu and Netflix to music streaming services like Spotifiy and Rhapsody which offer offline caching that allow wireless subscribers to manage their data usage. Users can download a collection of songs over Wi-Fi before heading out the door.
Why shouldn't free services like YouTube and Vimeo offer offline viewing within their mobile apps where they can still deliver their advertising services?
This could be the coolest video you'll see today. This stop motion video was created from paring down 25,000 images to 4,500 images captured over 5 days and 2 nights. The team used tilt-shift photography on a Cannon 55OD to get the miniaturized perspective.
