Re: Is broadcast television dead? Google announces Chromecast
This Google Chromecast device is not that big a news. My $80 Blue Ray player gives me the same functionality to view youtube, netflix, yada, yada, yada - and it plays, get this, blue rays! (along with dvds and cds) I don't think Chromecast is any kind of game changing product.
Its portable. cheap, works with hdmi offers popular programming, plays anything on Chrome...and of course you find nothing significant about it.
