    I read in the forums of a few people that are looking for this device... turns out it is in stock now at Best Buy, usually sells out quick just a heads up! I think it is a great deal for $35 but it is a MUCH different device than an Apple TV.

    I read in the MP forum where someone is selling one to double check the netflix bonus because the vouchers were no more after the first day. I do believe netflix would still have to honor the code unless they can prove they were fraudulent. $35 with netflix is a great deal.

    Thanks! I live less than 1/2 mile from Best Buy. I might take a walk over there later today and get one if they have them in stock.

    Just FYI: Google just did a software update on the ChromeCast that "breaks" the ability to stream arbitrary content from a network share directly to the ChromeCast.

    You can still get the ChromeCast to stream this type of content through a Chrome tab on a mobile device, but you can no longer do the "roku-esque" direct streaming.
