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.

Yay! More single-purpose junk under the TV. I mean, HDMI ports are infinite, right?


Ya, other than Youtube junkies who are constantly watching cat videos on their TV, I'm not sure who this thing is made for. With no Amazon, no Hulu, no MLB, no HBO Go, etc, this thing ain't replacing a Roku any time soon. With Netflix, you can already queue up vids on your PC and watch it on any one of 9,000 set-top boxes that support it, so that part doesn't really impress me.
