Google Chromecast

Google recently announced a device that may change the landscape of streaming media as we know it. The device in question is called Google Chromecast. The diminutive dongle is roughly 2″ long and  simply plugs in to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. Thru this tiny device you’re able to stream media from Netflix, YouTube, the Google Play Store, and Pandora (coming soon). Google strongly believes that users should be able to stream their media from any device and if the technology works as well as they claim the Chromecast will allow you stream media from tablets, phones or  laptops that are running on any OS – Chrome, OS X, iOS, Android, or Windows.

Google’s Rishi Chandra says. The device connects with the home Wi-Fi network, so you don’t need to tie up a computer, mobile phone or tablet. “We bring the highest resolution directly from the cloud instead of relying on your device to push the content,” Chandra says. The chromecast also allows any device to instantly become a remote control for your TV.The real surprise here is the cost. The Google Chromecast only costs $35.  In theory the Chromecast should eliminate the need to have separate streaming devices such as a roku, xbox or ps3. It’s currently available on Amazon, BestBuy.com and Google Play and will be available soon in BestBuy stores.
