Chromecast + Android

While I appreciate the size of my iPhone versus, say hauling around an enormous flat panel screen and calling it a smart phone, I did find the functionality of drax0r's numerous android devices scattered around the house enormously helpful.

I decided some time ago I didn't require an iPad or other knock-off tablet for any reason, even those reasons which included finding them invaluable once owned. But having Chromecast-enabled apps casting from my sole communication device was proving problematic; enter an embarrassingly inexpensive 7" Android tablet who's sole purpose is to Chromecast, sitting adjacent my similarly-purposed remotes.

It doesn't need to do anything else, and it does what its supposed to, perfectly.
