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.

Sure it has Hulu support. Browse to Hulu in Chrome. Find your video, start watching it, send it to your TV. The same is true for the others. The point of Chromecast is this - instead of having little applets for different services (Hulu App, Netflix App, etc), such as on ROKU and Smart TV's, ANY video service you can access in the Chrome browser can now be shown on your T.V. This way, you don't have to wait for developers to support your favorite video service. I think it is great and I bought one.
