Sling Media :: Welcome
Internet Tv was only a matter of time and now it's here.
Program your TIVO, watch movies on your laptop, computer and PDA where ever you go and never be away from Premium service you currently pay. Even though it will set you back $250-you will save hundreds because now your laptop or computer can easily be your mobile TV.
From here on you will definitely get your moneys worth.
Talk about impressive for a toolbar.
Even though it's still buggy. I must admit it is a change for a tool bar to do search on your favorites, send pages to friends and button customization.
Regardless It's Google attempt to be ahead of the others.
Lets see what Microsoft comes up with next?
If Verizon perfects its glitches. We can be looking at a new mobile online music store on the move with Verizon Wireless V Cast service.
V Cast does exactly what you current online music stores does currently except that it's mobile. Will this new wave catch on. Only time will tell and Verizon is sure is betting on this by spending lots of money.
If you accidentally damaged your electronic device. Before you go out and buy a new one try this.
They give you instruction on how to salvage your electronic device.
It's worth to try and make you buck last longer.
Don't be surprised when XM radio creates it's XM Radio player. If XM radio has it way, they could change the way we listen to radio on the internet.
Let see what happens next. But it's a right move for now.
Upgraded your Personal Computer to a new software version and hate it.
Most new software versions are just headaches and add on unnecessary items.
If your one like myself who hate new version but like the old version of the software your using and can't seem to find that old copy. Try this website.
You can also do a google search on Old Software that has been discontinued to remove old software on your personal computer that still shows up on your add/remove program folder.
How about a flash drive as slim as a credit card.
Well it looks like it's 2gig possible and it might just make flash drives more attractive.
How nice it would be to show someone your entire picture gallery via a credit card flash drive.
I can see this portable storage device getting popular.
Looking for a discount on your current Verizon or Nextel phone system.
Let's see if this will work for you. Cell phone advertisement.
I don't know if I will like that idea but it's a choice if your looking for a discount.
Still not here in the United States but a lot of other manufactures are getting in on the portable video player that excepts all video formats on the move.
I just hope that they can improve the battery life to last longer. I believe most people will be upset to just get only 3.5 hours of movie play time.
If your long waiting for the Windows Update to Service Pak 3.
You should wait another year longer. Now it's expected to be released in 2007.
In turn Microsoft will deliver it's new software named Vista on time this year and convince people to upgrade.
It disappointing that with all that money they have in reserve. They can't get there product to perform well.
People should stop buying new Microsoft products until they get there priorities straight. They are selling you a product that is half finished and hardly works well.
You wouldn't go to a supermarket and buy a half eaten cake, when you could buy a complete cake. Don't be fooled. Stop the insanity now and let Microsoft know now that we are fed up of it's software.
Motorola new Bluetooth headset is making a unique device customized to your body.
It's noise cancellation and battery life of 7.5 talk time.
The question is how portable and comfortable will this device be.
Talk about the coolest video camera that sends live pictures via the web.
This camera contains its own web server. So you don't need to connect it to a PC because you can use it wirelessly. A security mode alerts you when motion is detected. Hopefully this camera will be the next generation security system affordable to many.
Looking for a scanner that scans business cards and documents into Excel, Quicken, Pdf documents. This scanner might just be what your looking for. It even updates contacts to Microsoft Outlook address book.
Looking for a Plasma television. Well Panasonic will help you customize your Plasma.
You can create you television to the similar way you order a personal computer. Very interesting on how this concept will turn out in the future.
Now you can order your television they way you want it and with the inputs you need for your everyday lives.
The easiest way to save money.
Buy cheap gas on the go.
I don't care what anyone really said. Unless your manuals states to by premium do so.
Otherwise regular gas will do just as well as premium.
Don't be fooled by what the big oil firms say about gas and less octane.
It's like going to a store and having a choice to buy a fur coat or a regular coat.
If you have the money then spend it and buy a fur coat. If you don't might as well wise up now.

This is one of my favorite PC Magazines and one interesting article came up on February 2006 issue that I never heard of before but it's one of those good ones.
DSL modem looses the internet connection for no apparent reason. The activity LED goes dark but the DSL indicator remains lit. And the telephone line at times you unable to get a dial tone. I am using the line filters that they recommend. What do you think the problem is?
Everyone would assume it's the DSL modem. But there is no dial tone. The only possible solution is change the DSL line filter that goes to the phone which either had short circuited or failed. But this did require a phone call to the ISP.
