For Koushik Dutta, it's not enough that his AllCast app can stream an Android device's content to set-top boxes and other mobile gear; he now has it streaming to PCs, too. His new AllCast Receiver for Chrome lets you send photos, videos and your device screen to anything with a Chrome web browser on the local network. If you want to use your Chromebook as a makeshift TV, you can. It's not quite as slick as sharing content between native apps, though. You can't use the wireless headset feature with video, and screen mirroring isn't seamless. With that said, this is still one of the easier ways put your phone's media collection on a bigger display.
