The Slingbox Promotes a Healthy Lifestyle

I came across a post today by Matt Haughey on PVRblog who writes about using his Slingbox so he can catch up on his TiVo’d Jon Stewart and Colbert Report episodes by perching his laptop on the handlebars of his elliptical trainer while working out. That’s a great use of in-the-home placeshifting and something I’ve been known to do from time to time while riding my stationary bike in the basement. Better living through technology!

I also know someone (who shall remain nameless) who uses his Slingbox so he can visit the bathroom while watching his favorite shows and not miss a moment. Why he can’t just hit pause on his PVR, I’m not sure…
