    Google Chromebit $100 computer

    This is really interesting, I think it's at the right price point to have a chance to succeed:

    Can I use it to stream Cyclones.TV on my TV? That's really the question, since there's no Roku channel I can use.

    Yeah, and I bet it was even more amazing than the time you ate your weight in Godfather's pizza, right?

    Would be a lot cooler if it was also a vaporizer.

    With this quote, in hindsight, it probably would have been best to check for hidden cameras afterwards.

    Re: Google Chromebit $100 computer

    I think this is super cool, but if you have a smartphone, then why would you need something like this? Yes, you can plug into any TV. But to operate, you need a bluetooth mouse and keyboard, right? So if you were traveling, you'd still have to bring a keyboard and mouse with you.

    Please enlighten me if I am missing something.

    Can you use your phone as the keyboard? If there was an app that used your phone as keyboard/mouse, you'd be set.
