The past few weeks have seen a ton of activity on the Chromecast front, and now some of that excitement is extending to Windows Phone. With the Tube Cast app, you can link your Redmond handset to Google's HDMI dongle and search, select and play YouTube clips to your flat-screen. As WMPoweruser notes, it's pretty simple (much like Chromecast features on Android and iOS) but it can't pause or stop playback. While the general idea is great, hopefully the next set of apps gives just a touch more functionality. After all, not being able to pause a goat screaming like a man can be awkward if the wrong person walks in the room.
