Nexus Q Streaming Media Player

Getting all that music and video from the cloud to your living room no longer requires the strenuous efforts of a fanciful-yet-surprisingly-heterosexual pixie. Google’s Nexus Q┬ástreaming media player ($299 for 16GB) uses your Android smartphone or tablet along with Google Play to stream your stuff to your TV, sound system, or a pair of speakers. You can also hook up with your friends’ droid device to create playlists and such. And hey, when your buddy sees the 22 Whitesnake songs in your library (Whitesnake had 22 songs!?), don’t apologize; stand tall.
