Less than two weeks after xda-developers posted images of a new Google-branded Android TV device that looks like it could be a next-gen Chromecast, the site has a new report that gives us an idea of what kind of specs the media streaming dongle will have.

Basically you can expect the same sort of hardware found in a number of recent media streamers… but in a small package that could support Google’s Stadia game streaming service, among other things. All in all, it looks like this could be Google’s eventual replacement for the current-gen Chromecast Ultra.

Meanwhile, the company has dropped the price of its entry-level Chromecast from $35 to $30.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

    1. Clear your browser cache. I have no idea why, but when I changed the site theme in mid June, some users stopped seeing updates unless they manually refreshed the page. I thought we’d worked out the issue at the server level, but it’s possible some people still have old content stuck in their browser cache. Let me know if forwarding it helps and/or if you continue to be unable to see new content posted in the coming days without manually cheating your cache or reloading the page.

        1. Sure, but you’ve visited Liliputing on multiple devices, so they could all have cached versions of the page.

          There should be a few fresh articles now. Can you let me know if you can see them without clearing your cache manually?

  1. Hey Brad.

    Just my take but I miss seeing the number of comments from the main page. Sometimes I’d only go into a specific article to see what people had said (or if there had been new replies I might go in again).

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I ran into an issue with the WordPress theme I had been using, and decided to try out a new one — out of the box, it doesn’t support displaying comment counts on the homepage and other archive pages, but I’ll dig around and see if I can find a way to bring that back.
