For me it's not about the apps. It's being able to (hopefully) play nearly anything from a Chrome browser tab. The things not available to me on my Roku or Boxee Box, like web only content from Hulu, would be played from my browser without an HDMI cable.

I have a work around for my living room (wifi HDMI) but the desktop in my office/guest bedroom does not have HDMI at all. The Chromecast could solve that problem.

It would be great for my brother's home in Costa Rica. He could stream from his iPhone/iPad, I can use my laptop or Nexus 7 or rooted Kindle HD (all through a US VPN). People renting the house for vacations would also be able to use it.

Mine have already shipped! And I just received an email with my Netflix gift codes.

Due to overwhelming demand, the 3 free months of Netflix with Chromecast purchase, is no longer available.

Google really fumbled the ball on this one. They vastly underestimated the demand for this device. I ordered mine from Best Buy last night and it shipped this morning.

The new Nexus 7 would be a complete winner for me if it had a built-in SD micro Card slot.

Well, I ordered earlier today. Hope I get it as it's one of the things that got me to order now instead of waiting.

No official word for UK users, but I just noticed this third party listing on amazon.co.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Google-Chrom...rds=chromecast

Let's hope they're trying it on with the £99.99 price tag, but the interesting part is this:

Stock expected around the 9th August, Order now to avoid further delay!
Now they may just be buying up in the States and reselling, but let's see.

Google has been fumbling a lot recently, IMHO.
