Review: I review Google's Chromecast for TweakTown.com

Google Chromecast Review

 

 

As some of you already know, I write for TweakTown.com as my full time day job, and from time to time, I post an interesting review or article that I will share here as well. This week I took some time to play with Google's latest gadget, the Chromecast a HDMI dongle that makes streaming YouTube, Netflix, Google Play Movies, and even Chrome Browser Tabs quick and easy.  Priced at just $35, the Chromecast sold out in stores and online within 48 hours of its launch. Google said that those who ordered within the first 24 hours would receive three free months of Netflix with their purchase. Read more about Review: I review Google's Chromecast for TweakTown.com

Lulzbot Opens Forum For Its 3D Printer Owners

Lulzbot AO-100

It's no secret that I love my Lulzbot AO-100 3D printer. Over the last few months I have printed about 10lbs of filament through the machine and have only ran into a few small problems, which were remeided by a quick email or phone call to Lulzbot, or by emailing other lulzbot owners I met on Reddit. Today Lulzbot has just added a forum for owners of their 3D Printers which will make trouble shooting even easier as this will provide a sort of archive for information on upgrades, repairs, and tweaks that the community has generated. We have already joined and began posting photos to the site! Head over to http://forum.lulzbot.com and sign up for free!  Read more about Lulzbot Opens Forum For Its 3D Printer Owners
