I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area, about 25 miles east the city itself, and have had my Chromecast for about four (4) months and am generally pleased with it. I now use it mainly for streaming Netflix, HBO Go, and YouTube content, but like most of you, I am looking forward to streaming local content from my Android phone and desktop computer, and also using it with a lot more applications.
It was quite a process signing up for this forum and I had to do so on my laptop after being unable to do so on my HTC One using Tapatalk. It looks like it was worth it though, as there appears to be quite a bit of valuable content. I will soon be trying to log in again with my phone, using Tapatalk, now that I am registered, and look forward to discussing this great little device with the rest of you.
