They don't have much that isn't widely known. I think they're releasing the development kit for it soon so developers can start doing more with it. I know months ago one of the big name devs had already figured out a way to cast everything on your phone, so it'll be coming.

The function I like best is the add to tv queue in youtube.

I heard it works with your PC also? But only for the internet (chrome)? I have a 35 foot hdmi cable running from my tv around my dresser under my bed to my ottoman next to my couch so I watch my PC on my tv, wireless would be a lot better....

We have a similar setup on our house with a server hooked up to our living room TV to stream media to the entire house.

Ditch the super long cable and get a wireless mouse and keyboard so you can just stash your laptop near the TV.

I do, I have the one designed for a PC to TV actually with the touch pad next to the keyboard. It's nice having the laptop close when I'm doing hw though, I can put my notes or research on the tv or watch a movie from my PC while I work. I work better then I multitask, I get distracted just enough that I don't burn myself up

I picked up 2 for $60 shipped end of Dec. Used it mostly for netflix and youtube while I was recovering from the flu. I installed the other one in the conference room at my office. They really need to let me cast everything from phones to ipads/android tablets already. It'd become an awesome business presentation tool.

That's only if you can access wifi easily. Or if you have 2 devices, one to be a wifi hotspot and one to be the controller.
