Getting a Chromecast was perhaps the best geeky decision I made recently. I wasn't an early adopter but I still find it useful especially whenever I need a "babysitter". What I didn't like though was the fact that you couldn't use your TV's remote control with it. Sure, using your smartphone or tablet as control is pretty cool but sometimes you just want your trusty old remote control to function as it should. Good thing Google updated the streaming stick to allow pause and resume playback Chromecast videos with any TV remote control.
