Chrome Cast Thumb HDMI device for your TV

 

Now you can stream YouTube, Netflix and other videos right on to your TV with this amazingly small thumb device called Chromecast. But wait, haven’t we heard of such devices before?

Google Apps for Business is no more free

I’ve been using Google Apps for business for quite some time. It’s an amazing service especially when it comes for free. This includes your own domain configured with Google mail, Google docs, Google Calendar and a number of Google services. Today we got email from Google intimating that this services is no more available for free. If you have a business and a domain name, you can still get this service for as low as $5 per user per month. You can find more details here: http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/business/pricing.html

Existing customers like me don’t have to panic yet, though you never know how it unfolds in near future. Existing Google apps accounts will continue to function as usual.

There’s a good news for educational institutions though. If you are a university or college with a .edu domain, you can still get this amazing service for free. Get your educational institution ported over to Google Apps using this quick link.
