GigaOM Chrome Show: Chromecasting and torrenting from the Pixel

Instead of getting new Chromebook(s goog) hardware last week, Google introduced a $35 HDMI dongle called the Chromecast. What is it and why is it basically sold out already?
On this week’s podcast, we answer those questions and offer up some tips to get the most of a Chromecast from your phone, tablet and even your Chromebook. Plus we have a handy Chromebook trackpad tip, discuss Chromebooks in the enterprise and share a BitTorrent client for Chrome OS.
