Google TV: We're not dead (yet) | Internet & Media - CNET News: "the low-powered, affordable, plug-and-play HDMI Chromecast dongle could be a ferocious hit. Pre-orders already have had their shipping dates pushed back, and we know that a system update is in the offing. Google demonstrated a feature, currently in beta, which will let you stream any Web page to your TV.
