Google "Google is making another foray into the living room with the Chromecast, a small $35 dongle that allows users to stream videos from a phone or tablet to their TV using Chrome. Essentially, it turns every TV into a smart TV, but it uses the same basic interface as whatever device you're on." Looks like an absolutely fantastic product, especially with the low price point and SDK for developers. I want this. Now. Too bad 95% of the world can't buy it for now.

TBH, I wasn't impressed with this (I already own a Vizio CoStar GoogleTV) until they announced the low price of $35. Then it perked my attention. However it makes me worried that GTV may now be a dead product.

My only small complaint, is what if I hook this up to a my stereo for 5.1 surround sound? I doubt it would it work just as seamlessly.
