Google is kicking Apple off my TV, and I couldn't be happier

102
Chromecast and Apple TV

It's no secret that I'm a cross platform kind of guy. It's also no secret that I use – and enjoy using – Apple devices day in, day out. Like the Apple TV. For about 18 months now I've had a happy relationship with the Apple TV. It's small, it's easy to use and it works like a charm in conjunction with a Mac, iPhone or iPad. But that happy relationship is about to come to an end, I fear.

Google might be about to step in and take over the TVs in my house with Chromecast, and eventually no doubt Android TV. I already own a Chromecast – you need to have one lying around, right? – but it doesn't get used as much as the Apple TV. Mainly because the Apple TV doesn't need my phone or tablet to operate it. None of that matters anymore, though. It's Google coming to the rescue.

Seidio Convert Combo case for the HTC One M8

Seidio Convert Combo case for the HTC One M8

Weekend (or weekday) warrior? You'll want to look at the multiple levels of protection this combo case offers

Not everyone needs the same amount of protection from a phone case, and that's why they come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and materials. The Seidio Convert Combo case for the HTC One M8 tries to split the difference somewhat, giving you three different levels of protection depending on how you put together the parts.

It still leans on the more heavy duty end of the case spectrum, but may appeal to someone who needs lots of protection most of the time, and just a bit less bulk the rest of the time. Read along and take a look at this interesting multi-layer case set for the HTC One M8.

Hacking your Chromebook is fun and easier than you think

It's easy to make your Chromebook more than the sum of its parts

A Chromebook can be a great purchase even if you never step outside of Google's trusted environment. They are some of the best web machines ever built, require almost no software maintenance, and come in a myriad of different styles and price points. We love the things, and the numbers say we're not alone.

But like anything electronic, sometimes it's fun to push the envelope and do things a little outside of the intended use. Sometimes that means hidden features in the software, sometimes it means altering the software, and sometimes it means replacing the software entirely. We're familiar with people doing just that with Android, but it's also pretty easy to do with your Chromebook. The best part is that it's also very easy to go back.

Let's have a look at what you need to get started, and where to begin.
