    [Contest] Google's Chromecast HDMI streaming Device Detailed; Plus a Quick GIVEAWAY!


    We aren't done sharing all the juicy Google news just yet. Amongst the plethora of exciting announcements from Google today came a unique and intriguing new product. It's called the Google Chromecast, and it will retail for $35 bucks. This device is basically an HDMI dongle which can seamlessly and wireless share streaming 1080p HD video content throughout all your devices including your home TV.


    We will have a breakdown of all of its functionality below, or you can check out the video above to get a good idea. However, before we do that, we are also announcing a "quick contest" for this device! We will be giving away one Google Chromecast to one lucky, randomly chosen winner! All you have to do is post a comment in the thread and include your forum username and "Contest Entry" (bolded) in the title of your post. Please be aware that no duplicate entries will be included when the final winner is chosen. The contest will close and the winner will be chosen at Noon this Friday the 26th, so you only have a small window to win one.

    Here's the full details of all this amazing little device is capable of:
    • Two-inch USB device that runs "a simplified version of Chrome OS"
    • Requires separate USB power
    • You can connect it to your local WiFi network and similarly connected devices will work with Chromecast
    • Early adopters will get three free months of Netflix
    • It is an HDMI-CEC compatible, and it uses 2.4GHz 801.11 b/g/n WiFi.
    • Apps that work with the device include a "Cast" button - this allows users to push video to their televisions and control various aspects remotely (volume, play, pause, etc.).
    • According to Google Reps, "Once Chromecast is plugged in, you just go to YouTube on your smartphone. You'll see the cast button in your UI and you press it -- Chromecast will pull the info you requested from the cloud and play it on your TV."
    • YouTube, Netflix, Google Play movies and more will be remotely controllable with the Chromecast
    • Google showed Google Chrome projected on a TV and controlled remotely with a "standard $500 Windows 8 laptop." They indicated that this feature was only in beta but they expected to improve it quickly with feedback.

    You can order the Chromecast today (again for $35 bucks) and it will ship in 1-2 days (but don't forget to try your luck with the contest first). It will be available in retail stores (like Best Buy) on July 28th.

    Here's a link to it in the Google Play Store for more info or to order one - Google Play Store - Chromecast

    I'd really love one of these. I cut the cord with my cable company so this would be sweet.
