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.

'Cyber Monday' is typically known as the day Amazon and other tech retailers pull out all the stops to drop prices and get customers to empty their pockets.  This year, Amazon is starting their tech deals earlier than usual with some deals already appearing on the site over a week early.  We've provided a link below so you can browse all the Amazon tech deals and we'll be updating it daily all the all the way through Cyber Monday and throughout Cyber Week.  We'll be highlighting particularly cool deals for Chromecast and Android lovers as we find them and if you discover one first please post a direct link and a comment in the comments section below.  Happy shopping everyone as holiday season approaches and we all start buying presents for both our loved ones...and ourselves. :)

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.

Yes, looks like Google will introduce an upgraded Chromecast during their September 29th event.  Should offer new features and some more powerful hardware.  It'll be interesting to see what it offers!

As a fellow Chromecast owner and gadget freak, one of my New Year's resolutions this year has been to do something that I'm guilty of not doing enough of over the past several years...backing up my hard drive on my computer and my data on my tablets and phone.  I've been looking for a good portable hard drive with a lot of storage space and this 2 Terabyte Western Digital My Passport model fits the bill!  Normally sold for $99.99-$129.99, it's on sale now on Ebay at the link below for just $79.99.  This is a BRAND NEW 2TB hard drive.  That's huge folks and is more than enough room to back up most laptop or desktop computers as well as anything on your tablet or phone (photos and music!!!) you might want a back up of.  Western Digital is also a premier brand of hard drive.  They along with Seagate make most of the hard drives in computers today.  The WD 2TB My Passport Portable Hard Drive includes USB 3.0 and 2.0 functionality for fast data speeds and is powered by the USB port of whatever device it's connected to.  No additional power needed!  It's the perfect portable backup solution.  Free Shipping as well!  Grab one at the link before they're gone!

2GB is now SOLD OUT but they have a 1TB for an equally great price and at least $10-$20 less than anywhere else!  Here's the link:

If you've wanted to pick up your first Chromecast on the cheap or if you've been looking for a 'deal' to get some extras for friends or other rooms well here's your chance.  Groupon has a special $25 deal right now for Google refurbished Chromecasts and they come with a 90 day warranty from Google as well.  These units are 'good as new' and since Google has inspected and certified each one you can buy with no worries.  Pick up a few for gifts or outfit your house with Chromecasts in the bedroom, den, livingroom, kitchen...wherever you want to stream or control you tv with your Android device.  Hit the link below to grab one or more now!

ivanmarsh,

Welcome to the forum but...there's no reason to act angry or use vulgarity here on the forum.  The 4 questions you're referring to are part of our sign-in system along with the CAPTCHA to weed out autoposters or 'bots'...which post spam all over the forum.  It's a necessity and without it this forum would be filled with garbage and unusable. 

Now, I'm sorry you've been having difficulty with your Chromecast.  First off you should know this is a free independent forum that has no connection with Google.  If you're looking for Google's forum you can find it  here.  Now I'm sure if you politely explain what kinds of issue or problems you're having with the Chromecast there are forum members here that will be happy to help trouble shoot it with you and get it working well.  But if you're just gonna bitch and moan and complain and throw out vulgarities you'll not only get no help, you'll just end up getting banned.   

Chromecast works great for most of us(and millions have been sold) without any major issues so if you're having that much trouble with it you're in the minority and there might be something wrong with with your setup, your Wifi or perhaps tv or device you're using it with.  To get the best response and get to the bottom of things I'd recommend posting specifically what is happening with your Chromecast and what trouble shooting you've done so far in order to resolve it and then see if some forum members can help come up with a solution.
