In fact, the Chromecast has probably paid for itself and then some. Right now you can get a $6 Google Play credit if you have a Chromecast on your network, and you can do it multiple times if you have more than one.

Broadsword: Age Of Chivalry Rides Into The Play Store On A Tegra-Optimized Horse

The term "chivalry" has somehow become conflated with being gentlemanly over the years, but chivalry was mostly about who to stab with your sword and how to go about it.

Google's Latest Android Commercial Reaches Cute Factor 11 By Mixing Adorable Animals And Disney's Robin Hood

In 1973 Disney released Robin Hood, a kid-friendly re-telling of the English outlaw legend with anthropomorphic animal characters. There wasn't anything odd about that  - its previous release was The Aristocats. What was odd about the movie was the tonal shift to American folk music, with Texas-born singer Roger Miller providing the songs and narration, and even appearing as Robin Hood's musical merry man Alan-a-Dale (an animated rooster in this version).

RIP RadioShack: The Iconic Electronics Retailer Files For Bankruptcy, Sprint To Move Into 1750 Of Its Retail Locations

Today marks the end of an era in retail, as the iconic electronics chain RadioShack filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, weeks after a final warning from the NYSE that its stock would be delisted for falling below market capitalization requirements. While I was too young to really know RadioShack in its heyday, the company that got its start on mail-order ham radio gear in the 1920s, there probably aren't too many people in America who haven't at least walked into one.
