Google Brings Internet to Your TV with Google Chromecast

Can  you imagine bringing the Internet to your TV for $35?  Well you don't have to imagine it.  The device exists and it is called Google Chromecast.
 
The $35 device is a HDMI dongle, which means it will plug into the USB port on your TV in a similar way that a USB jump drive  plugs into your USB port.
 
The dongle is controlled by an Internet connected device (tablet, laptop, PC, phone) and it is not specific to Android but will work with iOS (Apple) devcies as well.  Once the controlling device tells the website or provider what to play through the Chromecast, the dongle takes over and the controlling device is out of the loop.
 
It currently will work with YouTube, Netfiix, Pandora, and some other content.
 
Pretty cool & pretty slick if you ask me.
