    This is what Microsoft’s screen sharing adapter actually looks like — Tech News and Analysis (click for full article)

    by Janko Roettgers - Sept. 4, 2014

    -- Turns out it’s not a stick, after all: Microsoft’s Nokia subsidiary officially unveiled its answer to Chromecast Thursday, and it looks a little like a small hockey puck. The device, called Microsoft Screen Sharing For Lumia Phones – HD-10 of all things, uses Miracast to share a phone’s screen, and actually works with any Miracast-capable device, counter to what that name suggests. News about the device first popped up online two weeks ago.

    However, there’s a twist for Lumia phones: Microsoft’s screen sharing adapter also supports NFC, so you’ll only have to tap your phone against its screen sharing disc to launch into screen sharing mode. The adapter will go on sale later this month, and cost $79 in the U.S. as well as €79 in Europe.

    Microsoft launches $60 wireless display adapter for Windows and Android - Liliputing (click for full article)

    09/23/2014 at 12:04 PM by Brad Linder

    -- As expected, Microsoft is launching a wireless display adapter that lets you beam content from a PC or mobile device to a TV.

    What’s a little unexpected is that the wireless display adapter doesn’t just support devices running Windows and Windows Phone. You can also use it to stream content from a phone or tablet running Android 4.2.1 or later.

    Microsoft plans to ship the adapter in October, and it’s available for pre-order now for $60.
