Slingbox Is Shutting Down

You’re going to think that I am taking these questions out of context on Slingbox’s FAQ but I promise you that I am not (via the Verge’s Sean Hollister):

Q: Why is Slingbox being discontinued?

A: We’ve had to make room for new innovative products so that we can continue to serve our customers in the best way possible.

Q: Will Slingbox be releasing any new products?

A: No.

The company is also discontinuing its apps and its servers will be shut off in two years. But this duo of questions and answers will, I feel, live on for eternity. Someone ought to etch this into stone.
