We've been looking for a good video review and demonstration of the 2nd generation Google Chromecast as well as Chromecast Audio and Android Authority has done just that. Here we see the design changes of the 2015 edition of the Chromecast and the benefits of it. We also are introduced to Google's new wireless audio solution...the Chromecast Audio. The Chromecast Audio lets you turn your ordinary speakers into wireless speakers that similarly to the standard Chromecast can be controlled by your Android mobile device. It's really a boon to people that already have a great stereo setup and speakers they are happy with and don't want to have to go out and purchase a dedicated pair of bluetooth or wireless enabled speakers. For $35 you simply buy the Chromecast Audio and it's done.
The Chromecast app from last year has been updated to include support for the Chromecast Audio as well as some new features. You now have more options to customize the screen background, include news, headlines and pictures from Google and more. The internals of the Chromecast have also been updated with new hardware that now supports 5Ghz wireless rather than the older 2.4Ghz. Also the processor has been upgraded and as the reviewer mentions in the video 1080p video from a service such as HBOGO streams instantly crystal clear when it used to require some buffer time with the older Chromecast. There's more info about the Chromecast Audio and Chromecast if you watch the video above so I highly recommend you do. Now both the 2nd generation Chromecast and Chromecast Audio run $35 apiece which is a steal considering their functionality. If you don't mind having slightly slower streaming but overall the same functionality of the newer Chromecast you can save a few bucks and still pick up the original Chromecast for a bit less. I've included links below for all three so pick your poison and start Chromecasting today!

There's not one, but two Chromecast promotions going on right now that when combined end up being quite a deal. First off, Google is offering any new Chromecast or Chromecast Audio buyer $20 in free Google Play Credit to use for your choice of music, movies or apps. This offer is good for all new Chromecast purchases as long as they are activated by January 2nd, 2016. But that's not all. BestBuy is also offering their own promotion. You can save $5 on a single Chromecast (now $30 instead of $35) or $15 on two Chromecast or Chromecast Audios when bought together for just $55 for both. If you consider in addition to this discount you factor in the $20 in Google Play credit you're in effect getting two Chromecasts for $35...the normal price of one. The Google Play Credit is good no matter where you purchase your new Chromecast as long as it's activated by 1/2/2016. We've included the link below to Best Buy's Chromecast page where you can get this deal. Then, once your Chromecasts arrive simply set them up and navigate over to Google's Chromecast page to redeem for your free $20 in Google Play Credit!

Nexus 7 2nd generation Blowout going on right now on Groupon. Only $99 gets you a brand new 2nd generation Nexus 7 plus a premium cover. This is the lowest price we've ever seen by a good margin. At this price it makes a great stocking stuffer or backup tablet if your old tablet has become worn. The premium cover features the auto sleep/wake function when the cover is opened. These originally sold for $229 so this is over half off...and that's not even including the value of the free cover.

If there's something just about anyone will like for a holiday present it's a super fast MicroSD card with lots of memory for their tablet, phone or camera. Lucky for us Amazon right now has a promotion on Sandisk and Samsung MicroSD cards that are it's lowest prices EVER. How low? How about only $9.95 for 32GB, $18 for 64GB, 128GB for only $45 and get this...their super huge and fast 200GB Sandisk card only $99...which is the lowest price we've ever seen anywhere by a large margin. Now granted for most people 200GB might be overkill for a phone or tablet but personally at these prices we should all stock up on the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB sizes. imagine having hundreds of movies, thousands and thousands of pictures and songs at your fingertips without having to go to the cloud or move things from your desktop. Load up at the link below and buy some for all your relatives and friends.

BestBuy's Black Friday deals are now live and as we previously announced one of their best deals is on the brand new Chromecast or Chromecast Audio. Typically priced at $35 each, on Black Friday, which actually starts at BestBuy at 5pm Thursday,(Live Now!) you can purchase any two for only $50. That's a $20 savings. You can mix and match so it can be two chromecasts, two chromecast audios or one of each. A pretty great deal if we say so. I've provided a link below to the Chromecast page. The 2 for $50 deal won't activate until Thursday at 5pm. You can also check out the full Black Friday ad to see all the great deals at BestBuy so i've provided a link for that as well.

I don't know about you but after years of having my trusty old HP printer that requires me to plug in a USB port every time I print I've been waiting for a really good deal on a wireless HP printer to replace it with. Well today's the day. Staples has this HP LaserJet Pro P1109w printer for over 50% off at only $49.99. That's a really great deal since it usually lists for well over a hundred bucks and it even includes a starter toner cartridge good for about your first 700 pages. Grab this deal fast and upgrade to wireless printing from your laptop, phone, tablet...whatever and get that awesome HP Laser quality as well. Awesome...hit the link and get one before they're gone!

Google introduced the all New Chromecast at an event in San Francisco Monday and it's a nice upgrade over the original version. Featuring a bold new design in three colors with a built-in HDMI cable and offering 802.11ac Wifi, as well as the 5GHz channel. Probably the biggest change from a design standpoint is that instead of the Chromecast plugging directly into your HDMI port, instead it hangs as a dongle from the cable. This allows more flexibility in tight spaces. The new Chromecast costs $35 and offers all the features of the original to cast your video to various screens from a gigantic assortment of apps plus the ability to mirror your screen and more.
Also introduced is 'Chromecast Audio', which is basically Chromecast that works with select speakers and lets you play music from your phone, tablet or other device and hear it over your audio system of choice just like regular Chromecast lets you watch video. Chromecast Audio also costs $35 and works with all your favorite music apps such as iHeartRadio, Pandora and Google Play Music with more to come in the future.

According to numerous sources Google will be introducing a new version of the Chromecast on September 29th during its event in San Francisco. This new version should replace the current Chromecast and offer a bunch of new features including one called 'Fast Play' which will make connecting to other devices quicker and simpler. Other additions expected include some new, faster hardware under the hood, improved Wi-Fi and more. The new Chromecast will also look different and be available in several colors. While retaining a dongle shape it appears more circular in nature in the blurry photos leaked.
Also expected to be announced is an all new product called 'Chromecast Audio' which should offer wireless audio for speakers. We're thinking this might be some kind of bluetooth or Wifi device that does for audio what Chromecast does for video. It should offer both wired ability as well as wireless multi-room audio support.
