Chromecast will handle Flash video, but not Silverlight or Quicktime video on the Web.

Fixed. That should be 0.64 lbs. But a 64 lb. model would be a lot harder to steal.

"Chromecast can display content from devices"

This is incorrect. Devices can merely instruct Chromecast to browse a certain URL. Only content from the web is displayed (e.g. no photos that haven't been uploaded).

This also means there will be no flash video (amazon prime, cbs, comedycentral). This severely limits the value of Chromecast to the average user.

"The tablet weighs 64 lbs..." -- Really? Are you sure? That seems awfully heavy for a tablet, no?
