Congratulations to Garret W, whose photo of an old-school portable computer won the contest. TV reviewer David Katzmaier selected the winner from among the top ten vote-getting entries.

“There was a lot of great old tech among the final photos,” said David, “but I liked the ‘portable’ TRS-80 computer from 1979 best. With a monochrome monitor, separate keyboard, archaic peripherals and even a three-ring binder, all encased in a massive wood trunk complete with handles, it shows just how far computing and portable tech have come.”

Thank you to everyone who participated and a special congratulations to the ten finalists with the most user votes. Check out their submissions in the photo gallery below.

Google’s Chromecast could throw your mobile and browser games onto your TV

  • Posted on December 29, 2016 at 6:37 am

Google was announced The Chromecast, a small WiFi-enabled HDMI dongle that may well prove big news for bringing mobile and browser games to your living room.

The Chromecast plugs into your television’s HDMI slot, and allows you to send content from Android and iOS devices to the TV screen via Wi-Fi, while also supporting Chromebooks, and the Chrome web browser for Mac and Windows.

The device that is connected to the Chromecast then controls everything you see on the TV. The one caveat is that mobile apps need to integrate the Googlecast SDK to be able to send content across (apps in a Chrome web browser will work via “Chrome tab projection.”)

The device costs $35, and is already available to purchase directly from the Google Play Store. Notably, the possibility of projecting mobile and browser games via the device is not mentioned on the official website, which focuses on the video and music capabilities of the device.

As such, there’s no word as-of-yet regarding whether games will be fully supported, or whether input lag will cause issues for this particular line of fire.
