Haben sich die Vorgesetzten erstmal was in den Kopf gesetzt, dann wird es schwer, es ihnen wieder auszureden – besonders, wenn man der einzige Experte im Raum ist.

Habt einen schönen Abend!

Gestern das Moto G als Ersatzhandy für zukünftige Ausflüge und Urlaube gekauft, damit mein gutes nicht immer dabei kaputt geht.

Kann ich nur empfehlen. Größe ist optimal und Leistung absolut ausreichend. Der preis ist dabei unschlagbar 169 EUR.

Klare Kauf Empfehlung

Reviewing Chromecast:

1) Setup
In short damn easy. Plugged it into my AV-Receiver with external power plug. Then installed the Chromecast app on my mobile. This app is basically just for the setup (Network, Chromecast name).

2) Officially supported apps
As far as I could try there is support for Google Music, Google Movies and Youtube. So I finally can now watch movies rented and bought in the Play store finally in HD (i think it is 720p). Through the Web it was only possible to watch in SD

3) Tab casting
Basically one can stream a tab of Chrome to Chromecast when the Chromecast extension is installed. Youtube movies are streamed then as well. (Silverlight or Quicktime movies are not streamed) at least not in full screen mode. By resizing the browser window to fit the video size you could somehow achieve a fullscreen feeling, however audio will not be streamed, what makes it somehow senseless.

4) Screencasting
Via chrome there is also an option to stream the entire desktop. Works basically quite well, but there is no audio streaming supported in this mode.

5) Casting local video and audio files
Basically everything what the Chrome browser can directly play can be cast to Chromecast via Tabcasting. Although Chrome can play mkv files it is not possible to get audio e.g. working when for example AC3 is the source. However I found a wonderful thing call Plex (http://www.plexapp.com/) which is basically a media server working through the browser. After installing it I added it my movies to the plex library turned on tabcasting and was able to stream any HD source to Chromecast. I tried the local playback settings with up to 20 Mbps, where I got some lags in between, but with the 8Mbps it is really running smooth and the audio is in sync with the video playback.

The Verdict
Being able to buy videos now in the Play Store and just watch them on the TV screen in HD, listening to my Google Music through my AV-Receiver and having the possibility to listen to Music without connecting my laptop to the TV (well Airplay is an option for MacUsers with my AV-Receiver) and being able to watch every video from my Laptop what is supported by Plex without connecting my laptop to the TV makes the 35$ investment perfect.

Sadly there are no major news about the Chromecast since its release, so I hope there is more to come in the future. 
So I for now the verdict is
8/10

Once it is possible to also stream audio through screen casting and/or maybe the support for things like silverlight and quicktime the verdict might level up.

Definitely a must buy.

helped me a lot to setup httpmocks, so that I an run an application without a real backend.
Just one thing I needed to was wrapping the script block inside a hidden div, because usemin is outputting "undefined" if you do not specify a target

I don't think I've ever put that much thought into sea level before. My mind is kind of blown by this.
