no, wrong again- just you
Yes, but if I had no computing device, and I wanted to get an AppleTV to watch Netflix, there's nothing stopping me from signing up at, say, the library. Or on a friend's computer. Or is there? AFAIK, all Netflix cares about is that they get your CC info, and that your payments go through.
Sorry, but unless you own I-Phones, I-Pads and I-Pods, there is no reason to prefer Apple TV over Chromecast. And as Google Chrome does run on IOS devices, the $64 is a compelling reason to prefer Chromecast over Apple TV even if you do, especially if you have multiple TVs. 4 TVs, 4 Apple TVs = $400, the price of an Ipad 4. 4 Chromecasts that you can get for as little as $25 apiece from some outlet? Exactly.
Nope Mr Google, you're not getting into my personal pictures. I ran into you when looking at a Sony TV device, so I passed on it. My Mr Google you're popping up everywhere, but I'll definitely avoid buying anything you have your spying eye into.
That may even mean I avoid buying certain cars or car models, if you are looking at me from them.
Having you spying on my Internet use, is more than enough of you!
That is a legitimate consideration, but it was not raised by the guy that I replied to, the one who insisted that anyone who was unwilling to pay 3 times as much for a device that did basically the same thing was a loser. That gets thrown around a lot around here, and the reason is rarely concerns over Google collecting, storing and sharing your data.
Incidentally, I am not going to get a Chromecast anyway. I was going to get an Apple TV, but its not supporting Amazon Prime is a dealbreaker for me, because Amazon is a big #2 for me to Netflix (and I would use it even more if they were to come out with a Netflix-like user interface). So I am far more likely to get the Amazon dongle it seems.
