I have never thought of a TV being the use scenario, more about hooking Chromebit to HD monitor. It seemed the reviewers main critique is that it was not Android, it is called Chromebit.
It's cheap, it's small and it's light. But it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

If you want a clipping or clipboard type extension Copycat might be worth a look.

I have two Chromecasts and use weather. Lately I have noticed how way off base it is. For example, even though I am experiencing sub zero weather, it states 40 degrees. Note that Google Now data is accurate which is where I'd assume Google would get data from. Has anyone else experienced off base weather?

The reason why Chromecast has to use the IP address is not encryption, but the fact that it is not tied to any specific Android device (or whatever OS), or any Google account. Setup only connects it to a WiFi network, helping the device to avoid privacy scares.

Sling is getting a lot of attention, but if you follow the forums / Reddit it has loads of complaints. Biggest is stuttering, and channels not playing or available.

If you looking for options USTV Now has my vote. I currently am trying the $19 a month promo that includes over 28 channels. It is so Chromecast friendly, the quality and performance is impressive.

Need a clipboard, or clipping extension where data resides on the Chromebook, Copycat might fit the bill.

Pricey but sounds nice.
Looking at the Chromebook market, you could be forgiven for thinking it’s just the modern iteration of the netbook age. Small, cheap, underpowered plastic laptops that offer very little to anyone w...

I got a Vizio Sound Stand for Christmas. http://www.vizio.com/s2121wd0.html. It works beautifully with my Chromecast. I am YouTubing the Beatles to it right now. Netflix has never sounded better. If you are considering a "stand" instead of a bar I definitely reccomend it.
Versatile design. Simple control. Uncompromised sound.
