DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Google Chromecast Review - A New Way to Consume Online Video

If there’s one thing that’s lacking about the experience of watching online video, it is that you are always restricted to watching it on a tiny computer screen. And you need to use the computer screen if you want to participate in the whole social thing, like liking the video, sharing it and commenting on it.

This is where Google Chromecast has simply revolutionized online video consumption. A simple dongle that plugs into the HDMI port of your TV, it can directly stream any online video from YouTube, Netflix and Google Play (from which music can also be streamed). You can control the Chromecast using any device – a laptop, the tablet or your phone. The beauty of this approach is that you can watch videos on the big screen, while still being able to participate socially using your device – watch videos on your TV, and like, comment and share using your device.

You can control the Google Chromecast using any device out there, including Android tablets and smartphones, iPhones, iPads, and Chrome for Mac and Windows. Your existing device will function as a remote for the Chromecast, from which you can browse for videos to watch, control playback and adjust volume. The video will initially start playing on your device itself, and with a single tap you forward it to the Chromecast (and the TV).

Setting up the Chromecast is super-easy. All you have to do is connect the Chromecast like in the picture, and follow three short steps that will be shown on-screen. The Chromecast and your device have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network in order for it work. The Chromecast will be powered by the USB port on the TV itself, while sending the video signal to the TV via HDMI.

The Chromecast is really fast. This is because videos are streamed directly to the Chromecast, and it your laptop’s screen isn’t mirrored (this is what the Apple AirPlay does). Your device merely does the job of sending the link to the video to the Chromecast, and the Chromecast streams the video by itself.

At the price of $35, Chromecast is truly a revolutionary device. It’s great that you no longer need to use your computer for a good online video experience. Buy the Chromecast by clicking here.
