NVIDIA SHIELD GameStream hands-on with Console Mode

A compelling use-case for NVIDIA's SHIELD device has appeared this week at the company's gaming week in Montreal: Console Mode. While we've seen this sort of ability working before, this version works with the branded functionality GameStream, the all-encompassing term for streaming content to and from SHIELD.

Chromecast support expands: YouTube embeds now Casting

With the release of the Chromecast came the second wave of Google's vision for ultra-simple "flinging" of content from your Android device to a larger display. As the Nexus Q took a belly dive, the much smaller and simpler Chromecast took hold, it being small enough to fit in a person's pocket and able to connect to essentially any Android device nearly instantly.
