    First let's start off sharing that the demand for the new Chromecast is insane. It seems like the device is getting close to selling out. The special three month free Netflix offer is no longer available through the Google Play Store and can only be found at Best Buy. In fact, the device is backordered by 3-4 weeks on the Play Store. Here's a quote with some of the details,

    Furthermore, Amazon isn't even offering the Chromecast at all anymore. Starting July 28th you should be able to find the Chromecast in physical retail stores, so we will keep you posted. We have something else quite intriguing to share about the suddenly popular device. Apparently, Google doesn't want its Google TV customers to feel left out, so they are planning to add the Chromecast features to the Google TV sometime later this year. Here's another quote with the full skinny,

    What do you guys think of how fast demand for this device skyrocketed? Share your thoughts.

    Maybe after I get paid tonight I'll preorder one. I use my PS3 to stream YouTube to my TV and it can be a pain at times and other times I'll just hook up my PC to my TV via HDMI. Either way, neither is as easy and convenient as what they are offering with Chromecast.

    I was going to order one last night and this morning and I didn't. I just went to the Play Store to buy one and they're sold out. It has the infamous "Coming Soon" message.
