Is Microsoft looking to put a dent in Orb and Slingbox bottom line?



I have a windows media player that I have been paying a lot more attention to since CES and I have a very good friend who has a Slingbox which he really loves. I have been wondering for sometime why Microsoft doesn’t allow me to do the same thing with Windows Media Center as Slingbox and Orb provide.

Well according to engadget there are some rumors on the street that is hinting that Microsoft may be getting ready to release a Windows Media Player update that will do some of the functions of Slingbox and Orb. [Engadget]
