Chromecast News - - Front Page Comments And Discussion / Google Officially Introduces the New Chromecast and Chromecast Audio!« on: September 30, 2015, 03:00:19 PM »
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.

Chromecast And Windows / Re: This is the most horrible, useless product I have seen in a very long time« on: December 15, 2014, 12:31:08 PM »
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.

Android Phone, Tablet and Tech Related Deals, Sales & Specials / Don't Miss Amazon's Massive Portable Bluetooth Speaker Sale Going On Right Now« on: December 06, 2014, 10:32:30 PM »
Amazon has been pulling out all the stops as the lead up to the holiday season continues. Today they've got a particularly cool sale going on for all us portablet device nuts who own tablets and smartphones. This sale is all about portable bluetooth speakers which as you know are one of my favorite 'go to' gifts for the portable device lovers in my life. They enable you to pair up any phone or tablet and listen to all your great music or watch a movie with much better sound quality than you would through the device's built-in speakers. They also let you share that music or sound with others which you of course can't really do with headphones. Some of these Bluetooth speakers are weather and even waterproof for the pool, shower or outdoors use. Other are perfect for the desktop. Prices are slashed just for the next few hours up to 70%.
Android Phone, Tablet and Tech Related Deals, Sales & Specials / $29.95 Portable Charger Is An Awesome Accessory For Your Tablet Or Phone« on: December 05, 2014, 06:41:08 PM »
Amazon's deal of the day right now is an awesome accessory for any tablet or phone owner and here's why. Battery life is the one demon we all fight with our devices. No matter how great a tablet or phone is, if we constantly have to stay around an electrical outlet, it limits our enjoyment of our devices. It'd be great if we could all snap our fingers and presto...have 2x or 4x the battery life in our existing phone or tablet but since that's not going to happen anytime soon the next best thing is to have a portable and powerful charger that you can have in your backpack, car or bag that lets you charge your phone or tablet fully when you're away from an outlet.
That's exactly what the Jackery Giant+ Portable Charger Power Pack is and right now it's at unbelievable price...$100 off list for only $29.95. With this portable charger which is light and small...you can literally charge your tablet TWICE or your mobile phone 4X without having to go and recharge the charger. Just think about that. You could take off for a weekend camping trip or day trip and not have to worry about being anywhere near a plug outlet for up to 2 or 3 days. Just have a fully charged Jackery with you and charge your devices from it. You can even charge two devices at once! Now you would think a charger with this much juice would be like $100 or even $70. But for $29.95? This is a steal. It's about the size of a small paperback book and works with both Android and Apple devices...anything with a Micro USB port. At the below link you can grab one for that low $29.95 price in the aluminum orange color (which looks pretty cool) or you can pay $10 more and get it in gold, silver or black. I just grabbed TWO of the orange. It makes a terrific gift for students, friends, relatives or yourself and at this price it's a no-brainer. Hit the link below to get one.
While this pic shows an iPhone and iPad the Jackery Charger works great with any Android device too
It even comes with a USB to MicroUSB cable just for that purpose
