They’re In Your House

marquee-productGoogle surprised the tech world this week with the announcement of Chromecast.  It is a flash drive sized dongle that plugs into an HDMI port of a television and brings web video to the TV.  You control the device with your phone, tablet or computer.  Chromecast is similar to Apple TV and Roku, and costs a whopping $35.

The biggest announcement within Chromecast is the SDK (Software Developers Kit).  It means there will be apps, and apps on Google Play will mean apps for Apple TV.

So, apps like Dark Sky and Forecast.io have been out there…on phones, on tablets, on the web.  Not a real challenge to the TV in the living room, that is our turf…wait…..
