I haven't been doing as many of my "The Writers Workbench" columns for the Writers Guild as in the past. But I do pop in with one every once in a while. And given that I suspect the television has become a lot of people's New Best Friend during the past eight months, I thought it would be good timing to look at the new Chromecast with Google TV, a device that "casts" or basically mirrors whatever is on your mobile device onto your TV. It does more than that, but it sort of, kind of turns any television into a Smart TV.
(I also explain in the article how you can mirror your laptop to your TV extremely easily and inexpensively, with the help of only an HDMI cable, which some people may even have a spare lying around the house.)
I addition, the articles look at the Anker PowerExtend USB-C Capsule, a device that expand your outlets and serves as a surge suppressor, but I found that it can also fill a potential limitation of the Chromecast.
As I always note, because the Writers Guild has already coded the article, and it would be convoluted to read it here, this is the link to read all about it.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
