Sling Media, makers of the very cool Slingbox, released 3 new models of the box (these ones actually look good). Their packaging note that they have Mac support but unfortunately that isn’t really the case. The Sling Player for Mac still isn’t out yet. Not in the box, not for download. Leaving mac users who bought the new models, not to mention current users who were waiting for the mac version, pretty unhappy. The player does work under Boot Camp and Parallels but, really, you try to go in Windows the least amount of time possible. I only use the player under Parallels for one particular show. C’mon Sling, you should, really for your own good, release at least a beta of the Mac player. You’re slowly but surely loosing the Mac community’s faith and respect.
