I had accepted the reality that my new Google Chromecast device would not be shipping until sometime in October. I was sad about it, but I had accepted it. I snoozed on my order and I lost out on being a first adopter. Based on an email I received today it turns out that Amazon was able to get a few of them this week. My Google Chromecast should show up this week. I’m looking forward to getting it setup. I have heard good things about them over the last few days. One of my coworkers even taunted me a couple times.
