Internet / PC Software

Have you heard of Googles new Chromecast?

If not, where have you been? This superb little dongle will transform your life 🙂
In a nutshell, before you read the rest of the page, Chromecast allows you to send any content on your Android phone, iPhone, Ipad, tablet, PC, laptop etc directly to your TV 🙂

The MASSIVE benefits over Apples TV are that Chromecast uses the Android operating system, the hackers and modders are already working on 3rd party apps and have completely cracked the encryption system 🙂
This means there will many 3rd party add-ons allowing you to send movies, games etc straight to your TV from your  (insert your device here lol) This dongle will also work on ANY operating system unlike Apples which requires Apples OWN software ONLY – Typical of Apple and the main reason I hate the company so much!

Here is some more info:)

I started on computers back in the days of the Sinclair ZX81 and Spectrum, back when people were coming to terms with how great their new digital watch was. Even though I worked in DIY Shops, Fancy Goods, the building trade, DJ’ing etc, my main interest and passion was always in coding, graphics and games. I decided to take the plunge into computer shops in the mid 90’s and in 2003 set up my own computer business.
I have a simple work ethic which is I prefer to make a little money often, rather than charging a fortune and losing customers. This has proven to work for me and my customers. In all the years I have traded I have never advertised and yet each week, I get new customers through recommendations – there is no higher praise :)
