Release date for Google's Chromecast
We got a bit carried away when Google announced their new Chromecast gizmo, and we still are. There's something very pleasing about a boring looking gadget that is being sold for relatively cheaply, which can connect all manner of things to your TV, so you can sit on your arse for longer and have more fun doing it.
If you missed the announcement and can't be bothered clicking a link, Chromecast is a dongle you plug into your television set, which enables you to stream directly onto your big screen. It essentially turns your TV into a monitor for your phone, laptop or tablet.
This is particularly good if you have the BT Sports app on your tablet, and want to watch the football on your TV, rather than have a tablet on your knee.
And now, there's a release date! An internal listing at Dixons retail stores says that Chromecast will be available in the UK on March 19th.
There's no official word on pricing, but we suspect it'll cost around the £30 mark.
A recent app update shows Chromecast is now available in 50 new languages, which means that it looks like Google will be rolling this out worldwide rather soon.
