Google clearly believes that if at first you don't succeed (Google TV, the Nexus Q), you should try, try again.
Behold the Chromecast. It's cheap, small (the size of a thumb drive), and it plugs straight into an HDMI port. It's also one of the best ways to get web content on your HDTV.
Connect it to your Wi-Fi network, and control it with your favorite computer, smartphone, or tablet to play online movies, music, photos, and other Internet content.
Your friends can join in the fun, too, by "casting" their favorite YouTube videos to the big screen.
