Google is now selling $15 dollar ethernet adapter specifically for Chromecast. It’s for people who have unreliable WiFi connections, which is big damper if you’re streaming movies. The ethernet adapter comes with a power supply and a USB port where you connect the Chromecast device. In addition, the ethernet adapter will also provide power to Chromecast. At the moment, the ethernet adapter is only available in the USA, and is already sold out. Will you get one when it becomes available?

I don’t have a stereo receiver at home. On occasion, I like to listen to a local radio station online via iTunes. My biggest gripe are the ads. Do radio stations really need to play 15 minutes of ads before I hear the actual show? The only reason I stuck around was to find out how long the ads would run. 15 minutes of ads!
