    I have an iPhone 5 and I got a Chrome cast for Christmas and i think it's a great device. I love the fact that it's a dongle and hides behind the TV and can cast videos from YouTube and Netflix from my phone.

    To update my previous post as to why I got a Chromecast: It does work pretty good. I realized though that I use AirPlay much more on my Apple TV than I thought. There are just things I can't AirPlay on my Chromecast. And when I play something on the CC, it doesn't feel that instantly just starts playing like it does my Apple TV. I have pretty decent connection that gets up to 10MBPS.

    I just set up my Chromecast streaming The Hunt for Red October.
    Looks excellent. Just what I needed for this 2nd TV that doesn't need all of the functionality of my Apple TV.

    Now one thing that would be cool is if Apple came out with dongles such as a Chromecast that basically received the stream from a Apple TV and a iTunes library so you wouldn't need multiple ATV's for multiple TV's.
    The Chromecast is cool though if you want to stream Netflix and HBO Go to a HDTV on the cheap with a iOS device.

    Yup. I'd buy a dongle that strictly AirPlays anything that an Apple TV does without the bells and whistles of channels.

    I think the tech would soon go that way, given how everything is sorta shrinking these days.

    That would certainly be a great option

    I own an Apple TV but was considering adding a roku, but now that the Amazon Fire TV is out, I might have to wait and see how it pans out. Thought this article had some good food for thought
    The Amazon Fire TV is a very interesting product. If I could get the functionality of my Apple TV and the Chrome tab streaming from Chromecast on it, it'd probably be a must buy

    Do we have a gauge on how many iOS apps support Chromecast?
