Adding a digital TV tuner to your laptop is now as easy as putting a thumbdrive into a USB port -- if you live
in Europe or Australia, that is. Pinnacle Systems has launched the PCTV USB Stick, a tiny digital tuner that looks like
a thumbdrive, and comes with a handy remote and software to save shows in DivX and other formats. Plug it into your USB
port, and you have full access to terrestrial digital broadcasts using the DVB-T standard, which has been adopted in
much of Europe and Australia. The rest of us will just have to settle for BitTorrent.
