So you all know about the Google Chromecast, right? It is that little, affordable, flash drive looking thing from Google that clicks into your TV’s HD port and lets you stream anything from your computer onto your TV and phone. With a price point of thirty five dollars, I think many people were scared this product might be substandard. Well, I got one for Christmas and can tell you with all confidence, it has streamlined the way I watch TV and I now consider it a must-have for any home.
First thing you need to know, setup for the Google Chromecast is incredibly easy. You jack it into your HD port, throw an app on your computer and phone, sync the two up, and you’re done. What happens next is, you will see a little box in the upper right hand corner of your browser. Click that box at any point to put what is on your computer onto your TV screen. Heck, even web pages. I was opening articles and streaming them to my TV because they are easier to read on a 50 inch screen than a 15 inch screen. Honestly, Google Chromecast really is THAT good. You have not lived until you have watched “keyboard cat” on a massive screen in your living room (or man cave).
The only drawback to this is that we are slowly helping Google take over the world. I, for one, embrace our new robot overlords, and you should, too. Thirty five bucks? At least they are making the apocalypse incredibly affordable.
