Chromecast for My Media Streaming Needs

About a month ago, I asked for reader input on media streaming devices. I received some helpful suggestions, and I finally got around to picking up a Chromecast. As simple as my needs were (i.e., wanting to stream YouTube videos), I figured I'd give the cheapest option a shot.

Setup was a breeze, and I just used it for the first time to watch a video that has been on my YouTube "watch later" list since it was first uploaded, the recent and surprisingly controversial talk by Carol Tavris at TAM 2014. I thought it was excellent, and I recommend it to anyone with an interest in skepticism and criminal justice.

It would be premature for me to post any sort of review on the Chromecast yet. I've only had it for a day and used it once. All I can really say at this point is so far, so good. If it continues to work as well as it has so far, I imagine I'll be happy with it.

I have never gotten into watching much YouTube, primarily because I am nearly always doing other things when I'm sitting at a computer. I'm hoping that being able to stream will let me watch more while I'm moving around and doing other things. With all the interesting sounding atheist content available these days, I feel like a kid in a candy store when it comes to deciding what to watch next.
