Positives & Negatives Effects of Technology

Chromecast

Chromecast is a dongle that Google has created. Chromecast is compared to  Apple’s Airplay (Apple TV). chromecastFINAL

Google has made it an HDMI stick.

TheVerge.com/ did a review and did a comparing of the two (Apple’s Airplay and Google Chromecast).

As the Chart shows, it has some similarity such as they both have Netflix and YouTube and more. They also have differences such as size and platform support. Chromecast will work with iOS, Android, Windows, and Chrome OS. This is unlike Airplay, which only works on iOS and OS X. An advantage for Airplay is that it works with more applications.  Unlike Chromecast, Airplay has Hulu Plus, HBO Go, Spotify, Rdio, Dual screen gaming, Third Party-API and Pandora. The Verge said Pandora is going to come soon in Chromecast. According to

http://techcrunch.com they say Chromecast is incredibly easy to setup.

Airplay has 8GB for storage Chromecast’s storage is unknown but maybe around 2-4 GB’s of storage.

The price for the Chromecast is quite unbelievable it’s $35 US, unlike Airplay which is $99 US.

Many people have Apple products so you can sync all your movies and songs. With Airplay when you are playing on your apple device and you have guests over and want to see you play, you can stream the game on your television.

This is according to CNET Video (http://youtu.be/Tp9VA71eBew).  Rishi Chandra , Director, Product Manager, Google, said after setting up Chromecast and your TV  is off and you want to watch a YouTube video,  you do not have to physically on your TV. Remotely Chromecast will turn your TV on and automatically change the input.

More to come so come back every week!

Youtube Video

This is a Youtube Video I’ve created!

What’s better OS X or Windows

Apps

What’s Better IOS or Windows with experience with both of them I prefer Mac because there are apps (applications) that could help you entertain you and keep you busy. If you have notice you cannot get any apps on the windows software you will need to go on a website or buy a compacted disk, unlike the Mac you can get any apps in app store. It is not literally a store it is a default application that comes with the system.

Software

Every year there is a new software like Window 8 that is or IOS 6.0 and on. And to buy Window it is pretty expensive like $200 or more or less but for the Mac’s it is free. The system asks if you would like to update it and in a few minutes you are up-to-date.

Viruses

In a PC with Windows has a lot of possibilities of getting a viruses how ever Mac’s get it very rarely because it has a build-in anti-viruses especially the latest Mac:, Mac OS X.

Comparability

Windows and Mac’s can take all types of USB external Hard Drives. But still some USB are not  comparable with Windows 8 that came out lately.

Accessibility

For both of the software you need to play around with it so you can understand how it works. Always remember never give any site your personal info. If you are afraid that you might get a virus go to www.rogers.com/web/content/internet_security-features and you can get Anti-virus for free.

So after all this it is your decision what you want
