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.

Cat videos on my T.V, can't wait!!!!

But seriously, I am looking forward to slinging a few videos to my TV as I drift off to sleep. I do agree that the HDMI ports are getting crowded on TV's. In my bedroom, I have a ROKU on one port and the connected PC on the other. Do they make HDMI switches? For now, I'll disconnect the PC, since it was mostly used as a server, and for some Web videos - won't need that any more!

They do. Not sure how well they work, but I've seen them at Wal-Mart.
