First impressions on the Chromecast concept

Chromecast looks perfect for watching artists on LiveStream. I have a TV I only use as a test PC monitor, and it has a spare HDMI port. Would free up my real monitors on my main box for apps (and there'd probably be less crashing due to overheating - Texas is killer on my RAM). The three months of free Netflix is great, too.

I think it would be interesting as a general-purpose streaming device, too. However, Google's development terms give me pause. Not keen on the concept of restriction on what can be developed with a paid-for device.
