Chromecast is finally a strong Google point of view, and worthy foil to Apple TV and AirPlay.
But Apple TV isn’t sitting still, and nothing prevents some of what’s architecturally better (on the backend) about Chromecast from being addressed by Apple gracefully – and perhaps superiorly – moving forward.
But it makes things very interesting, finally.
This linked-piece from almost 3 years ago discusses my thoughts on Apple TV and AirPlay then, and their relevance to “TV 2.0”.
The urge to free-form post is coming back. I guess changes must be on the horizon.
Happy birthday, Brooklyn Bridge!
