    Sounds good to me, especially if they introduce the proposed ability to "cast" from a PC. Will follow this device and see how it turns out.

    Also is that a "Blockbusters" logo on the remote? Might be a bit of a dead service over here in the UK...

    Does seem like its looking to compete with the Chromecast, and I think a lot of people will appreciate having a remote, think they'll need to drop that price a bit though to compete.

    I'd still rather have a dedicated small android box than either of these and just use my phone, tablet, pc, laptop, KB & mouse etc. as the remote. I can install most of the typical media apps (and low end games) and not worry about what is 'cast' compatible. Its a bit bigger than these sticks but it sits behind the TV so doesn't really matter!

    Be nice when one of these sticks can easily mirror the whole phones screen rather than just 'cast' a selected app for those devices without a video out and don't want to mess around rooting etc.

    It's good to see that they care about currency conversion rates lol.
