CNET News Daily Podcast: Limits imposed on SlingPlayer app for iPhone
Why some iPhone owners are grumbling about the long-awaited app from Sling Media; Craigslist closes down its Erotic Services section; Microsoft takes on the Wii with a motion camera for the Xbox 360; and more.
The SlingPlayer app has finally made its way to the iPhone App Store. But it has some limitations, namely that it will only work using the phone's Wi-Fi connection, and not AT&T's 3G wireless network. This, despite the fact that similar apps do work on AT&T's wireless network and are available in the App Store, and the SlingPlayer app itself is allowed for some other AT&T smartphones. Reporter Erica Ogg tells us what's up with this discrepancy.
Also in this podcast: Craigslist closes down its Erotic Services section; Microsoft takes on the Wii with a new motion camera for the Xbox 360; and a lawyer for the plaintiffs in the Pirate Bay case is facing an unusual DDoS attack--on his law firm's bank account.
