A new level in laziness – achieved

Why turn around to watch the news on TV when you can pop in your Hauppauge WinTV-HVR850 USB tv tuner in your laptop and stick an antenna up in the window?


I bought this thing almost three years ago and doubt I’ve used it for more than 3 hours. I spent around 10 hours a day working on the laptop and I kept thinking – I wish I could catch the news or weather without having to stop what I am working on. Voila! I open WinTV and there is our local CBS station in a nice window right next to what I am working on.

Next, I just need to install a potty in my work chair and bring in a mini fridge.
