[Hands-On] Initial Impressions Of The Google Chromecast

Google is not good at TV – despite having more money and super-smart engineers than you can shake a remote control at, the company has always stumbled in the living room. Google TV was a good idea, but it's suffered from poor support and various bugs.

[Deal Alert] Off-Contract LG Optimus G Pro Available On Amazon For $414, $24 Less Than AT&T's Recent Price Drop

It's a good time to be in the market for an LG Optimus G Pro from AT&T. Last week, the network dropped the off-contract price of the powerful handset down from $549.99 to $439.99. Now Amazon has bested that price by over $20. For just $414.96, this handset can be yours to use free of the confines of a two-year contract.

Google Has Already Ended The 3 Months Of Bundled Netflix Deal With Chromecast After Insane Demand [Updated]

Google has noticed too: according to a report by the LA Times, they've decided to end the Netflix promotional giveaway, which bundled three months of streaming video service (a $24 value) with the device.

Wall Street Journal reporter Amir Efrati has let it slip that none other than Chrome/Android head Sundar Pichai has divulged the existence of a next-generation Samsung-made Nexus 10 tablet.

The Nexus 10 was announced along side the Nexus 4 late last year.

Benchmarked: 2013 Nexus 7 vs. 2012 Nexus 7 - Just How Much Faster Is It? A Lot, Apparently

While we aren't going to claim benchmarks are any kind of end-all measurement for real-world performance, there's little denying many people take a lot of stock in such utilities when purchasing a new device. The new Nexus 7, which is now packing basically the same chip as the Nexus 4, should provide a major performance boost over its Tegra 3 predecessor. But just how much of a boost?
