Is Chromecast Google’s Next Big Thing

28 Jul

Chromecast is a $35 dongle from the big G that plugs into an HDMI slot on your television, and its main purpose is to reduce the amount of time between wanting to watch a video on Netflix or YouTube and actually doing it. It works with both iOS and Android devices and instead of streaming from your mobile device (tablet, phone, etc) like AirPlay, Chromecast streams straight from the Internet; your phone or tablet just sends the instructions to the dongle. This is perfect for most Netflix viewers and is probably preferable. But for the tinkerers out there, for the same price you could get a Raspberry Pi that you could install XBMC on and have a lot more options, but again this isn’t for your everyday average consumer. What do you think?
