The one for the Madrid metro is sadly, not much cop.

I am not happy as I have one of the original Slingboxes:

Sling Media has announced that the first few models of the Slingbox won't work with new Sling software, including the much-anticipated SlingPlayer for iPhone.

The company, which is now owned by EchoStar, informed Slingbox owners on the Sling Media Web site Wednesday, saying that owners of the original Slingbox, Slingbox AV, and Slingbox Tuner were encouraged to upgrade to either a Slingbox Pro, Slingbox Pro-HD, or Slingbox Solo and that the company would offer those owning discontinued boxes a $50 discount to upgrade. (The Solo is the entry-level product and costs $180).

The reason? Because "software like SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone and future services yet to be announced" will only be supported on Solo, Pro and Pro-HD, and EchoStar SlingLoaded products.

The notoriously vocal and tight-knit Sling community wasn't pleased, with more than 120 comments on the topic in the SlingCommunity.com forum as of this posting, most of which expressed disappointment and anger. Since the upgrade offer was actually posted Wednesday, many Sling owners mistook it for a prank.

"I just hope this is one sick April Fool's joke - if it is it's not very funny," wrote one member of SlingCommunity.com. Others chimed in with similar hope, until it became clear this was all rather serious.

While a Sling representative didn't immediately return a request for comment Thursday, the company did note in the same blog post that the older versions (Slingbox, AV, and Tuner) will still function normally on their own, but won't be able to take advantage of new services.

A heads up for anyone using the sky app to remote record that your sky remote record account is linked to your viewing card, not the box itself so if you get a new box it will still work.

MyHighStreet is a free app which tells you the nearest shop to you. Fast and easy to use with a wide range of shops.

Put in the journey planner London bridge to Old street. 2 or 3 stops, but instead it takes you the other way round the Northern line!

This happens a hell of a lot.
I changed to TubeDeluxe. Much better :)

Is 8gb going to be enough for all the various applications and pictures and videos, music etc etc ?

Dave 23-04-2009 03:17 PM

NO

cpfc4ever 23-04-2009 03:56 PM

I have 16gb and that's enough for me ;)

Also, nothing to do with London Underground as far as I'm aware

It's a shocker isn't it. No excuse, they need to come clean and admit it's a money making scheme.
