Folks, last Wednesday I was too late and I ordered a Chromecast from a sold-out Amazon. For those of you who are interested, Amazon does not know when the latest shipment of Chromecasts will be ready. Which means one, very, very sad thing: the review will be extremely delayed. Sorry, y'all.
However, if you stay tuned, I will keep updating this article for information regarding Amazon's current stocking of the all-powerful $35 HDMI-powered dongle.
Thanks, and apologies for the delay.
