The new Slingboxes can do some nifty things, including stream content to iPhones, but for some odd reason, the older boxes don’t possess the magic software to do so. Owners of the older boxes can buy into what might be greed on Sling’s part buy taking advantage of a $50 upgrade discount on new equipment.
Don’t you think it’s rather nice of Sling to offer this discount on new hardware rather than simply putting out a firmware upgrade for the older crop? I do. You have to have something to spend your unemployment check on. Why not a gadget?
