Dongle, dongle, dongle!  It’s baaaaack!

When I wrote the original article, I had not yet received my Chromecast dongle and was hoping it lived up to the hype.  Now that the dongle is in its rightful slot on our HDTV, I can tell you that it was worth every penny it cost ($35).

When Boy sends us a YouTube video of Sweet E, we no longer watch it huddled around our computer monitor or on our phone.  Nope.  We watch it on our GIANT TV from the comfort of the couch!  ~snacks optional~

I can’t even articulate how amazing it is to see your grandkiddo and kiddos on a large screen TV, streaming in HD.  It’s a freakin’ marvel, I tell ya. (sorry for the dark room in the pic, but you get the idea)

This is a still shot of the video, via the Google Chromecast Dongle, on the TV of Sweet E having his first carrots.


As I say, “I ♥ technology!”

What’s holding you back from being dongle’d?!  (makes a great stocking stuffer!)

  1. Thanks for the update. We’ve been debating getting one of these. Glad to know they work well.

  2. That looks pretty cool!! Might have to get one of those!

  3. My mom just got a smart TV. She’s been on the fence about getting a dongle. Your review is rather timely for me. I may just have to get one for her for her birthday which is right around the corner.

    Found you on Blog Strut.

  4. I have to agree with you, it’s awesome. My nerdy husband had been watching and anxiously awaiting the release and then almost hyperventilated when they were so hard to get a hold of. He refused to buy online since the waiting periods were so long! When he finally found them, he bought three! Like you said, totally worth every penny! Thanks for sharing!

  5. We LOVE our chromecast! Now whenever we watch youtube it’s via the chromecast. We’ve also taken it over to parties and have fun watching everyone send their own videos to the TV. It really is worth every penny. $35 is a steal!!!

      THANK YOU for the validation! I keep telling folks that at $35 it’s worth every penny. I love that y’all take it to parties…never occurred to me!
