Google has just launched the new “google chromecast gadget” that retails for just $35 in the US markets, which makes it one of the cheapest media players so to speak. [updated new chromecast costs $55 at office works]
This Official Google Cast Extension available above is called Google Cast for the Chrome Browser and will allow the sharing of media and tabs straight from Chrome Browser to a Chromecast connected TV.
Why this “chrome cast gadget” can be revolutionary is because you can pretty much see anything online on your desktop onto your tv now via wi-fi. This technology is nothing new ( really check this page out ) where similar device was already on the market , but Google makes this new device cheap and easy.

Well it is not yet available in Australia unfortunately , but you can buy it on ebay for now where people are flogging it for $100 in Australia Ebay which is a bit of a rip off. Id rather wait for it to sell here at a cheaper price.
