Brilliant little piece from Jeff Jarvis on the Chromecast

Image
Jeff Jarvisoriginally shared: Google just demoted your television set into a second screen, a slave to your phone or tablet or laptop. With the $35 Chromecast you can with one click move anything you find on your internet-connected device — YouTube video, Netflix, a web page as well as music and pictures and soon, I’d imagine, games — onto your big TV screen, bypassing your cable box and all its ridiculous and expensive limitations.

Unlike Apple TV and Airplay, this does not stream from your laptop to the TV; this streams directly to your TV — it’s plugged into an HDMI port — over wi-fi via the cloud … er, via Google, that is. Oh, and it works with Apple iOS devices, too.

I’m just beginning to get a grasp on all the implications. Here are some I see.

* Simply put, I’ll end up watching more internet content because it’s so easy now. According to today’s demonstration, as soon as I tell Chrome to move something to my TV, the Chromecast device will sense the command and take over the TV.…

Chromecast is the way Smart TV should have been designed from the start

Before Google I/O I wanted a couple of things to be announced and one of which is a new Nexus Q. I also hoped that the way it should work is more of a streaming device and connects everything you own. I can't be bothered to rewrite what I said but man they basically did everything I wanted them to do with the chromecast, and for $35 USD man it is so cheap.

If you are interested on what I wrote, check out the link below to my post and read point 4.
