Slingbox Coming To Oz, Watch Out For Those Uploads

Nick over at our sibling blog Gizmodo reports that Australia will finally be getting the Slingbox — a nifty device that lets you stream content from your home entertainment network across the Internet, so you can view it no matter where you are in the world — in March, about four years after the rest of the world. While that's potentially interesting gadget news, it's a device you'll need to be careful with if your ISP counts uploads as well as downloads (stand up Telstra, stand up Optus). Catching up with your favourite shows on the road will make you mighty unpopular at home if you end up causing the broadband connection to be shaped.
