Not so easy "plug n play"

Yesterday I had the (unfortunate) privilege (if you want to call it that) of trying out the Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player. While it's a neat little contraption, I felt it was too much a hassle to deal with.

Let me start from the beginning:

My neighbor has been looking for some sort of set up where she can hook a TV up in her kitchen. Something little, something cheap and something that will get the job done. She thought that if she bought Chromecast, she could just plug the thing into something and watch tv.. just like that. Turn the screen on, flip a magic switch, and voila, easy bake muffins on the count of 10.

Boy, were we wrong.
