If you've been looking to be a beta tester for the place-shifting video software/hardware Slingbox, it looks like now's the time. Sling Media is consolidating its beta programs and is looking for a few good test pilots. Here's how Slingbox vice president Jeremy Toeman put it:
"So, if you like the Slingbox and want to get your hands a bit dirty with us on upcoming beta programs, sign up now. As you'll notice in the application, it is open to virtually anyone regardless of race, creed, sex, or operating system. We will use this as an ongoing program, and will pull people from the pool as needed. So you could hear from us next week, next month, or next year, depending on our needs at the time. For those of you who signed up to the Mac beta program, you might want to consider signing up here as well. There won't be any crossover, but it could get you slotted in for some future stuff."
