Things have been quiet from media streamers Slingbox of late, but thanks to the FCC we've got a glimpse of a new model, the Slingbox M1, which looks set to release soon.

New Slingbox hardware lands at Best Buy

New Slingbox hardware lands at Best Buy

I'm unsure why exactly a company wouldn't announce new products, sending them directly to retail outlets instead.
