Google Chromecast: The Best Streaming Media Player

You know, I’ve been playing with the Chromecast for a few days now. And so far we’re impressed, and not just by its low $35 price. It’s one of the easiest ways we’ve seen of adding Internet-based content to a non-smart TV. And it appears that a number of people feel similarly; as we were going to press, the Chromecast was out of stock at all the online retailers we checked, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Google Play.

And, I am not as eager as many of the Apple fan girls and boys, but I totally dig my iPhone, iPad, and even my Apple TV. But these are just a few examples of how much people will act over all things Apple. So when a product is released that throws a beat down on one our Apple products we figured we owe it to you to let you know. For this very reason, and well, because it’s awesome and CHEAP, we wanted to provide you with a Google Chromecast review take some time to tell you why Chromecast may be a better option than Apple TV.

You See it. Stream it.Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player

I do SO much on my devices and Google Chromecast is here to help make things easier! And Google Chromecast is designed to make the most of the apps and entertainment already on your phone. Shows, movies, live TV, YouTube, photos and more. It’s all just a tap away from all of your family’s devices.

Even better… this will allow you to save money by cutting the cord to cable and streaming their entertainment with the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player.

 

Well how does this work?

Google Chromecast works with the streaming apps you know and love! Stream right from your phone to TV simply by plugging Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV and to power and stream your favorite entertainment right from your phone with just a tap. Watch shows, listen to playlists, and more. And while streaming, you can still use your phone as you normally do.

Enjoy TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports and more from over 2000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW. Find more at g.co/chromecast/

Use your voice! That’s right, you can literally just say what you want to watch from compatible apps and control your TV hands-free, with Chromecast and Google Home working seamlessly together. “Ok Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV.” How cool is that!?

And one of my favorite things about all of this is that it’s already compatible with your existing HDTV! It will easily connects to high-definition televisions with HDMI connectivity.

I’m all about making life easier and gadgets like Google Chromecast are all about EASY.

Get Your Google Chromecast

The entertainment options are endless. The new Google Chromecast plugs into your TV’s HDMI port to open up a world of entertainment — controlled through your mobile device. Cast TV shows, movies, music, or games from your favourite apps, and discover new apps, features, and recommendations through the Chromecast app.

The Chromecast has some limitations, though. For example, it lacks the breadth of content offered by many streaming-media players such as Apple TV or Roku, it can’t do full AirPlay-like mirroring of portable devices, and you can’t stream local content stored on your phone or tablet.

Bosch 100 Series: The World’s Number One Dishwasher Brand

You know, I want tell you all about a great dishwasher that saw while surfing online at BestBuy. I am talking about the Bosch 100 Series in particular. It’s one of a kind. And I love it. It’s the best dishwasher I have seen.

What makes Bosch the World’s #1 Dishwasher Brand?

It’s Quiet

The Bosch 100 Series is quite possibly the quietest dishwasher brand in the U.S. and it uses 18 sound reducing technologies. And the InfoLight® lets you know that it’s running, because, it’s so quiet you wouldn’t know otherwise.

It’s Reliability

And the Bosch is the most reliable dishwasher brand of it’s kind and with the lowest repair rate according to a leading consumer publication.

It’s Design & Flexibility

I know the Bosch 100 Series comes in a variety of designs and door handles to fit any kitchen design.

And also, It has a 3rd rack that adds 30% more loading area. It has an Adjustable Rackmatic™ rack it provides 9 adjustable positions giving you maximum loading flexibility.

It’s Performance

Bosch owns 5 of the top 10 drying scores out of 160 tested dishwashers by a leading consumer publication. How awesome is that?

And its condensation drying sets Bosch apart from other dishwasher brands.

You all know that I really like that this series is fingerprint-resistant stainless steel that helps guard against smudges and fingerprints It’s also easy to clean.

The utility rack is the perfect place for hard to place items like basting brushes and whisks. And it opens up space on the upper rack for all the rest of your dishes.

And also, you can skip the Pre-Rinse with Bosch because all Bosch dishwashers have PrecisionWash™. This is an intelligent wash system with sensors that target every dish to leave them sparkling clean, every time.

I really like that in the Bosch factory, they perform 485 quality checks on every dishwasher to ensure lasting performance in your home.

And I want everyone to know that if you’re in the market for a new dishwasher, I recommend checking out the Bosch 100 Series at Best Buy and making your life easier and your kitchen shine with the world’s #1 dishwasher brand.
Remember to pin for later…

LG Refrigerators with InstaView: Designed for Your Family’s Needs

Introduced by LG Electronics in 2016, their refrigerator series called “LG InstaView” combined their flagship Door-in-Door technology with a smart screen LCD door. The series offers you a sleek and ultra-modern refrigerator that will positively amp up the level of luxury in your kitchen.




Though the range is on the higher end of the cost spectrum, its new looks, modern features and high-performance levels can make it a smart buy.  The refrigerator packs its state of the art looks with the best technology in cooling, freezing and preserving foods.

What Did We Love About It? The Top Features

You would love LCD glass window, which lights up to show what is inside when you double tap or knock on it.  Here is a look at the other things you’d love about it.

The InstaView window

The 29-inch LCD display is translucent when you do not want it to be transparent. Located on the right door, it has a tinted glass, which comes with a black stainless finish and does not let you or anyone else see what is inside – unless you knock on it twice.




With this feature, LG InstaView leaves behind glass door refrigerators that look fancy but are difficult to maintain.

The Color Options

LG InstaView refrigerators are available in two colors, stainless steel and black stainless.

– The stainless steel is the conventional refrigerators that are stain resistant

–  The blackless stainless finish, besides being stain resistant, is also fingerprint resistant and costs more.

The Door Options

With French doors, they are available in two, three and four door options. With hidden hinges, they offer more flexibility and are built with Double Swing Freezer technology. The Door-in-Door feature works great and has a cabinet that is made to store frequently needed and accessed food items. Yes, it’s the same cabinet with the LCD screen that turns transparent. Store the daily items here, as it can prevent the loss of cool air from the main compartment behind the door.




The Door-in-Door feature helps keep food fresh, thanks to the trademark Cold-Saver technology – its energy efficient and saves up to 47% energy loss.

Meant for Large Families

You have a humongous storage capacity of 30 cu. Ft. While the fridge capacity stands at 19.50cu.ft, you’ve a freezer capacity of 10.10cu.ft. The large capacity means you can store food for long periods and stock up on groceries and condiments needing refrigeration.

Pros

– The refrigerator has an easy roll-out drawer inside to store vegetables and three adjustable glass shelves.

– The left door of the refrigerator has the SlimSpace ice maker and water dispenser with removable water filters – helping you get drinking water quickly.

– Store food in the main compartments and in the in-door shelves as well.

– The ice can be frozen as either cubed or crushed and can be dispensed externally without opening the door.

– Three different temperature settings keep the inside fresh – and you can even control the temperature of the drawer.

–  The presence of Linear Compressor and Dual Evaporators keep food fresher for longer periods by quickly normalising changes in the temperature and humidity level – when the door is opened and closed.

– The grocery drawer retains an adequate amount of moisture that keeps vegetables crisper for a longer duration.

– The brightly lighted LED interiors also lend a fresh feel to the interiors of the refrigerator.

 Cons

– The LG InstaView Refrigerators may pack in many space saving features that offer good storage capacities but may not be the refrigerator you want to buy given other comparative options.

– Initially, you may find the control area of the refrigerator a bit clumsy and unorganised for use.
– You would also miss out on the fact that it’s not WIFi enabled and doesn’t have smart connectivity like the Samsung Family Hub.

– While designed for large families, the storage capacity may fail you if you wish to stack more than one large box of any food item.

– With the absence of a beverage rack and an inability to store a 2-litre bottle, the storage capacity offered by LG InstaView may not seem that desirable.

 Should You Buy It?

The LG InstaView series is a good choice if you work in the kitchen extensively and have back problems as you have to stoop less when using this refrigerator. You would love the style and design, and the door-in-door feature works great too, allowing increased accessibility and enabling better energy savings, thanks to the ColdSaver panel.




This refrigerator comes at a hefty price – all because of the InstaView window – and unless you really want the feature, you can look at some other competitively priced options. Alternatively, you might just want this new piece of technology – it does add in some great aesthetic value.
