    Much better than Chromecast is Miracast TV — HD Wireless, which doesn’t limit the content you display like Chromecast does, and a new $39 Miracast HD Wireless adapter became available this week and offers a lot more features and works much more like Apple’s $100+ Airplay Wireless display technology.

    One of the first sources to carry this new device is TabletSprint – worth checking out for this alone... and for Android tablets, including a new series of tablets that launch next week that offer some great features and outprice the new Nexus… definitely worth reviewing.
