Google Chromecast – Review & Giveaway

Unsurprisingly I’m handing this one over to Dave: 

Have you heard of Google Chromecast?  I forget how much people know about techy things.  My perception is skewed by my constant immersion in all things electrical!  If you haven’t heard about Chromecast then it’s from Google.  It plugs into a HDMI socket on your tv and let’s you send video, music, or pictures from your phone/tablet or your PC to your tv.

How to earn brownie points with your geeky husband . . . 

That’s about the size of it really.  It doesn’t do much outside of that.  If I’m honest I won’t be using ours for anything aside from streaming video, but for that it’s brilliant.  So quick and so easy.  It just works.  Set up is easy.  Plug in.  Download app.  Choose your Chromecast.  Give it your Wi-Fi password.  It updates itself and you’re ready.

I love how dinky it is!

Playback is as simple as finding a video you want to watch.  You can use YouTube, Netflix, or any videos you’ve got yourself and with the touch of a button its on the big screen.  Does that sound good?  If it does then you should enter our competition.  Over to Col.  “Sort out this competition will you love?  Cheers!”

Check him out with “our competition” who does he think he is hey?  

So, thanks to JNB, you can win a Google Chromecast of your very own – just complete as many of the Rafflecopter options as you would like.  Of course the more you do the more chance you have of winning but please ensure you complete them accurately to avoid disqualification!
