GamingCast-For-Chromecast.jpgNot content to sit on their laurels with the success of their little dongle known as the Chromecast, Google is adding a games feature to the "casting" device. For $1.50 you get to choose from a few old-school games like Pong, Snake, and "Tetris". This can't hurt the already runaway sales of Google's diminutive device.
