Chromecast USB cable is power only

An odd thing I've noticed, the USB cable that comes with a Chromecast dongle is power only, and does not support a data connection. So, in a true sense, it is not a USB cable, just a power cable with USB fittings. It is a shame they don't mention this on the Chromecast What's in the Box page.

QHD Displays are stating to look a good proposition.

27" QHD (2560x1440) Displays are stating to look a good proposition, might be an option to replace my aging 22" pair
Two options seem like the
QNIX QX2710LEDDport for ~£200 or the Monoprice IPS Pro for ~£280

Google Chromecast - just plugged mine in

My Google Chromecast arrived this morning, works a treat, best £30 I've spent on tech ever. If you look at it as a BBC iPlayer / YouTube set-top-box with the ability to use your phone as a remote, then it's magic. Looking forward to seeing what other apps get Chromecast integration too. I read the Guardian review and thought it was a bit harsh to give it 3 out of 5.
