Hi everyone. The cable reviews are going to slow down a little bit due to an incident that happened with one cable...

A cable managed to destroy my test equipment, including my $1499 Pixel 2. I've done an analysis of the failure, and it's a really bad mistake they made.

Needless to say, I am very unhappy, and this is going to affect how quickly I get through cables and other accessories in the short term since my computer is dead.

Yo dawg, I herd you like video, so I put a web server in your web browser so you can stream while you stream.
Chromecast: Cast movies on your Desktop Computer

As the title says... if you have a movies on your desktop computer, you can now cast them straight to Chromecast.

This is highly efficient, as there is no encoding/decoding taking place. It streams at full quality, with no lag. And since it is a Chrome app, it works on all platforms. No binary installation necessary; it will be available on the Chrome store.

Technical Details
I spent tonight writing a mini HTTP server in JavaScript that runs in Chrome. Full featured enough to handle requests and stream movies.

Yes, that means there is a web server running in my web browser. I'm insane.

This right here is reason enough to invest in ChromeOS. As long as you stay out of Developer Mode, you are as safe as your password.
