1. We will be doing some work to upgrade the forum platform and add new features and style options beginning at 10 a.m. EST on Tuesday, September 23 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes. This will include about 10 minutes of site downtime and another 10-20 minutes where the forum will be read-only (no new posts allowed). We'll take down this message once work is complete.

    <p>Sling Media has confirmed earlier reports that an iPhone&nbsp;version of its SlingPlayer Mobile software is in development. This will give Slingbox owners the ability to watch and control their home TV from Apple's smartphone or handheld.</p><table border="0" cellpadding="5" align="left"><tbody><tr><td align="center"><span onclick="displayWindow('http://www.brighthand.com/picture.asp?f=7764','Picture',770,587,'');">[​IMG]</span></td></tr><tr><td align="center"><p>(<span style="cursor: pointer; color: green; text-decoration: underline" onclick="displayWindow('http://www.brighthand.com/picture.asp?f=7764','Picture',770,587,'');">view large image</span>)</p></td></tr></tbody></table>The company currently has an alpha version that runs on &quot;jailbroken&quot; devices, but this is for demonstration purposes only.&nbsp;Sling Media intends to offer through the iTunes Store a&nbsp;version that runs on non-jailbroken iPhones. Exactly when this will happen is not yet known, though. <p>A spokesperson said, &quot;We are looking forward to the iPhone SDK becoming publicly available&nbsp;this week and fully intend to develop&nbsp;SlingPlayer Mobile&nbsp;using the SDK and are looking forward to selling it through the iTunes store.&nbsp; We started the development process before the SDK was available to characterize the performance of the platform and ensure that we could deliver a high quality customer experience on the iPhone &amp; iPod Touch platforms. The results have been&nbsp;very promising and we are eagerly awaiting the SDK's release so we can hopefully leverage what we have done already to deliver SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone.&quot;</p><p>The iPhone version will join the versions of this software for BlackBerry, Palm OS, Symbian S60, and Windows Mobile,&nbsp;which are either already available or in development.</p><p><strong>Related Articles:</strong></p><ul>
