Is Google Chromecast Right for You?

Posted by Mayank on August 1, 2013 in Gadgets

Google Chromecast – probably the smallest and the cheapest streaming device available in the market today. Well almost, except for the fact that it has already sold out! Google Chromecast turned out to be an instant sensation and sold out in minutes (or may be it was lack of inventory? – We might well never know).

What we know for sure is that Google Chromecast is a great product (if not exceptional), is priced exceptionally well and will for sure find its way to millions of households, just like Android did. The question looms “Is Chromecast Right for Me?”
