Tech geeks have been saying for years that you will soon be able to dump your cable subscription and get your shows over the Internet. Not quite at least, not yet. Google TV's launch this year, though, made for a worthwhile interim step. The software is available on a number of different devices, but the best bet for most people is the Logitech Revue box, which works with an existing TV. It's the only TV box to sit between the cable box and the TV, which means no switching inputs to use it. When you want Google TV, the Revue box allows you to browse the Web and stream video on your TV. When you don't, you can surf your TV channels the old-school way, from your couch with a remote, one channel at a time. It's the best of both worlds.
