Google Chromecast (RRP $49.95)

The kids these days aren’t interested in DVDs or Blu-rays, it’s all about streaming Netflix surreptitiously from the States, and with the Chromecast, it’s super simple to mirror this and other content on a big screen TV.

Chrome Clever: A very flexible device, the Chromecast works with virtually every smartphone, tablet and PC on the market.

From Google’s media streaming device Chromecast available in Australia from JB Hi-Fi and Dick Smith:

Chromecast is a thumb-sized dongle that plugs into the HDMI port of a TV to wirelessly deliver or ‘cast’ online audio or video from the smartphone, tablet or laptop directly to the TV. Once casting, you can put the smartphone to sleep, use it as a remote or continue to use it to browse the internet.

It is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and ChromeOS devices and is available in Australia from today for RRP $49 from select JB Hi-Fi and Dick Smith stores, or online from the Google Play store.
