Google’s Chromecast is sort of deceptive. Certainly at $35 it is one of the cheaper devices you can buy to enable your LCD television display to act in many ways it was not originally intended to. On the surface this device is only good for consuming Googles services[ like YouTube or ‘casting’ your chrome browser content from your Desktop computer to your TV]. Similar to the Apple TV it appears to just lock you into consuming media from the company which produces the device. Upon closer inspection there seems to be a bit more than meets the eye. I expect I will continue to discover new apps that use this device in ways that I did not expect and well over time I have found this little Dongle to be quite the Gem. Please See the Article on Haystack TV to see a great use of this device.
