You need this. You might not realize how empty your life is—how awkward and limited it’s been. If you don’t believe me, look around your living room and see the truth that’s been staring you in the face. Does the Netflix app on your Blu Ray suck? It won’t let you browse like the website, and is constantly buffering during the key scenes? Can you find that lost episode of Doctor Who on some obscure website and just bounce it to your TV in an instant from across the room? Can you watch full HD videos from YouTube (or more nefarious internet sources) on the big screen, while at the same time working in a separate tab on your laptop that isn’t being streamed to the TV? Can you see anything from your browser—photos, documents, websites—crystally clear and gigantic, with just the touch of a button? Can you win any argument by shoving a Wikipedia article in everyone’s faces the moment you finish editing it? If not, your life is pretty much a shambles, but don’t despair! If you have a computer that runs Google Chrome (or a phone, or a tablet), this magic can be yours for only $35. That’s less than the cost of Prozac, and you get to brag to your friends about the Chromecast, like I’m doing now.
