By now everyone's heard of (and is using?) the Slingbox, which takes your home's TV signal and retransmits it to another device, such as your laptop, when you're on the road or just in another room. This idea of "place shifting" has really caught on, at least with the tech savvy crowd, as a means of liberating it from the icy grip of terrible hotel TV. Since success breeds competition (or is it the other way around?), Snappy Multimedia is trying to get in on the "place shifting" action with it HAVA Video Streamer.
