Google had recently unveiled Chromecast, a small stick fits on your TV through HDMI that gives you the ability to send contents from your devices such as your phone, computer and tablet to the TV’s screen.
Costing $35, Chromecast is considered as one of the most brilliant creations by Google. it works with a lot of other devices that are compatible with a WiFi such as Android phones, Apple gadgets, Chromebooks, Mac and Windows. It was originally a device to make your gadget as a demote control for TV. As long as a program uses Googlecast SDK, it can send a content such as YouTube and NetFlix. You can also sling content through “Chrome tab projection.”
Apple had released almost the same service called AirPlay but it requires a device which cost $100. Chromecast is an independent device and much cheaper, but you must also have a strong internet connection to totally enjoy this technology.
While Google had not won the living room in homes yet with their Google TV and Nexus Q, it might be worth a chance as it is cheaper compared to the competition.
