Google Chromecast

Streaming on non-smart television sets doesn’t have to be costly or overcomplicated. Here to prove that point is Chromecast, Google’s tiny Chrome-powered device that plugs straight to your TV’s HDMI & USB ports and lets you stream Youtube, Netflix, Pandora, Google Play, stuff from your Chrome browser, and a lot more very shortly (thanks to Google’s developer-friendly Cast SDK) in 1080p quality. Otherwise, it’s seamlessly controlled by any compatible device, notably Android/iOS tablets, smartphones, and Chrome browser-equipped computers, costs as much as a week’s worth of lattes, and… did we mention the price?

They’re selling fast, but try to grab one at Google or Amazon – $35
