Get your actual living-room shows anywhere; SlingPlayer Mobile presents content from your personal TiVo, cable-tuner, and other devices online. The iPhone and iPad apps connect to your Slingbox hardware ($179-$299), streaming home content anywhere, even over the 3G network.
Sure, the folks at Sling finally have an iPad version of SlingPlayer Mobile waiting in the App Store to gobble up your $29.99, but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten their original iPhone version, which has just hit version 2.0.

Cocoon’s Gramercy bag tries to make carrying your iPad into a fashion statement of its own. And hey, why not? The iPad is sleek, sexy, and undeniably cool--shouldn’t it have a case to match? As if in answer to that question, this bag nicks its name from the crazy-fashionable Gramercy neighborhood of Manhattan, but its overall stylishness is more plain and pedestrian. It’s available in black, grey, or red, and provides just enough space to schlep an iPad and the included Grid-It accessory organizer.
