I'm waiting for it to show up on Amazon then I'll grab one to play with. Might give it to my parents. I don't think it would be as useful for me since I have a full computer hooked into every TV in my house. :laugh:

Its available on play.  I just ordered one.  My TV has a  Netflix app but isnt updated at all.  XBOX is ok...but would be nice to control everything from my laptop/phone.

 

Doesnt ship until August 2nd tho.

I'll take my Amazon Prime free shipping, haha. They said it should be up today.

I'm guessing because that was the live video and it's over. Should be on Youtube as a replay soon.

So is this a standalone device that essentially turns your TV into a Chromebook?

Only certain content like YouTube and Netflix are streaming to the TV.  You'll still need a host device like a Nexus 7.

Ah, I see. Even so, sounds pretty handy!

No, it's a device for streaming to your TV. Plugs into HDMI, connects to wireless, then you send it whatever video data you want to display on the screen. Same thing a bunch of other devices and technologies do, but for $35 and plug and play it's probably the best simple implementation so far.

Oh god yeah, I'm going to stream soccer games to my TV instead of watching on my monitor.

Still may but shop until August 2nd from amazon. Is figure if Google doesn't ship that quick, Amazon won't. Probably taking orders now and will ship when product is available. Who knows. I am patient... :-)

There is a developer sdk so more features will probably be coming.

If you buy the Chromecast now, you get 3 months of Netflix free. Great deal, since that's $24 right there. I guess I'll cancel my Netflix subscription for 3 months lol.

My TV has much of this functionality built in, but it looks like Chromecast will do a better job of it, and have more features. Can't argue with the price either.

 

Looks like I'll be upgrading my nexus 7 too.

 

Gotta love the times we live in, so much great stuff coming our way :D
