baltimoresun.com: So you’re sitting around, totally bored with the same old PC, bored with word processing, bored with spreadsheets, bored with Web browsing, bored with music, bored with news, bored with grainy YouTube videos.
Then you realize it’s Sunday night, and it strikes you: What you really want to do is watch Desperate Housewives. On your computer. In HD.
Well, for a hundred bucks, you can satisfy that high-definition craving with the Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick. Plug this nifty little gadget into a USB port on your computer, hook up an antenna or cable feed to the other end and you’re in business – HDTV in a window on your desktop, or full-screen if you prefer.
The software bundle includes a digital video recorder (DVR) so you can record your favorite shows while you’re not there. There’s even a tiny remote control so you can watch without getting out of your chair.
