Leaving your TV behind when you hit the road can be as traumatic as leaving your family (though don't tell your family that). Think of all the recorded shows that will have to wait, all the local sporting events you'll miss. But a device called Slingbox allows you to stay connected to your idiot box no matter where you travel. Slingbox streams an online feed from your TV, which you can access through a computer or mobile device such as the BlackBerry, Droid, iPhone or iPad. That means you can watch all the channels you have at home, including anything recorded on your DVR. Whether this is good news for your productivity remains to be seen.; from $179.99
