I bought a Chromecast for $39.99 + tax. To my surprise, you can get a $20 credit to your Google Wallet, effectively making the price of the Chromecast only $20 or so.

I'm not sure how long this promotion will last because according to this page,

http://www.redflagdeals.com/deal/computers-electronics/chromecastcom-buy-a-39-google-chromecast-player-receive-20-in-google-play-credit/

this offer was supposed to expire last month.

So what are you waiting for? Buy a Chromecast now for only $19.99!

Then you put ~$5 of that $20 credit toward Plex for Android, set-up Plex Media Server on your PC (free) and bam, you've got awesome local media streaming to your TV.
Who needs HTPC anymore?
Wait... what?

It connects to you TV and allows you to stream video to it from smartphones, computers or tablets.

It's a little thingy (looks a lot like a thumb drive) that seems to run on a variant of Android. You plug it into an HDMI port of your TV, and it runs things and streams things. You can install and run apps on it, too. I think you need a android phone or tablet to use it, though-- it doesn't have a dedicated remote.

*Turn Evil can now be cast on players. When used, it applies a small goatee and causes them to explain their diabolical plans while steepling their fingers.

I use my macbook and my windows desktop to control it.
