Google Chromecast lands…

Mar 19

Google ChromecastI’ve just ordered the long awaited Google Chromecast from Currys online. It’s also available at Amazon and the Play Store, despite earlier reports in the week, mostly by Currys, saying they weren’t selling it yet and it wasn’t on their store system. It’s the same price regardless of which retailer you choose and, it’s very reasonably priced at just £30 (much as quoted and expected).

I also paid for and got a monitor upgrade from a 19″ to a 22″  Basically, I would never get the benefit of the card as you can’t pass a digital signal through analogue!. Dell certainly thought they could delude me and included a very ‘high spec’ £2 adaptor in order to try!!!. They failed. I had no knowledge of any of this until I had the system inspected by a technician. continue reading…
