MLB.TV is now streaming on Google's Chromecast

Starting today, you'll be able to watch America's pastime on Chromecast. MLB.TV now supports Google's $35 streaming stick, and fans can start casting games to the TV once the required updates for At Bat 2014 arrive on Android and iOS this afternoon. A premium subscription to MLB.TV is required if you want to stream with Chromecast. The cost of entry isn't cheap at $24.99 monthly or $129.99 for the entire season, but at least that includes your At Bat subscription for watching games (or listening to radio broadcasts) on the go.

Buying in also means you get viewing privileges on a slew of other mobile devices, game consoles, and set-top boxes that offer MLB.TV. Casting also carries the benefit of freeing up your phone so you can track stats and scores elsewhere in the league.

Google just announced that window to sign up will open today at 4PM PT and remain active through April 18th at 2PM PT.

Building blocks: how Project Ara is reinventing the smartphone

In a spare, drab office park in Sunnyvale, California, a bunch of two-by-fours and foamboard have been nailed together into a makeshift model of a shipping container. Inside, a bare, unlit Edison bulb hangs from a wire, over some simple IKEA furniture and a table with Lego blocks on it. The blocks are stand-ins for modules that might someday go into the Project Ara phone, which in theory will let users swap in different components on the fly...
