Gadget of the Week: Episode #2


The Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player is an amazing electronic gadget.

At less than $40, you simply put this nifty gadget into the HDMI port in your HD TV.

Turn on your laptop or smart phone, pull up YouTube and it will display the video right on your television without any wires or cords.

Simply amazing!

The clarity and sound is superb too.

You can do the same with some other video programs, like Netflix.

This is one of the best gadgets you can own for the price.

    Love it. You can also broadcast from your desktop computer using Chrome browser. You can also stream Pandora and Hulu Plus.

    The price is right and works nicely with YouTube, NetFlix and other built in apps. You will need a strong wifi signal at your HDMI ready TV. Don’t expect this to be able to project everything that is on your laptop screen. Last month the capability to project a single Chrome browser window at a time was released in beta. It works but with lag and some crashes at present.

    Future updates to the ChromeCast will increase it’s versatility and simplicity.

    Nerd Away brothers and sisters!

    I’ve been considering getting this, but am tech challenged. Sounds so simple, but will now give it a try. Hope it’s as easy as everyone says. Thanks for the “challenge”. We love movies and have been getting DVD’s from Netfix, but would rather stream to TV.
