    Not really Android, or Off topic, but more Chrome related, anyone order a Chromecast from yesterday's Google breakfast event?

    I ordered mine from the Play Store and won't ship until August 2nd. Excited to give it a shot, and only $35 was a no brainer for me.

    If you don't know what a Chromecast is check out this link below, I'd like to hear your thoughts on this, and especially let us know if you picked one up!

    Yes I got it a while back. My bad for not updating.

    I use it on occasion for Netflix and Youtube. Actually used it for Google Play Music last night.

    Works as advertised, and for $35 a great piece of equipment only to get better once they open up the SDK and White list for devs.

    Only gripe I have so far is lack of settings. Example; when using Google Music last night, it would start each song with a full screen shot of the album art, then 10 seconds or so would switch to a cropped down album art and move it around the screen every so often. The full screen looked MUCH better than a tiny square of art on a giant black background.

    Outside of that, its wonderful.

    Highly recommended.
