Our typical first world problems may seem trivial and even sometimes ridiculous, but that doesn't mean they aren't problems. The TV remote being too far away is a real issue for many lazy couch potatoes (those commercials aren't going to mute themselves). If only someone could come up with a solution to this, oh wait, Chromecast already did. This little piece of technology plugs into the HDMI port of your television and wirelessly connects to mobile devices. Devices that almost never leave your side, like your phone, instantly become a TV remote. This dongle also allows you to stream Internet to allow for those well-deserved Netflix binges.

It's just the same as the regular iPad, but a bit smaller. That's really all there is too it. Naturally, people went bonkers and couldn't believe how they went on living all this time without the iPad mini.

Before you go on suffering for one more minute, read this infographic and see what your first world life has been missing.
