When the Chromecast was announced last week, I got very excited about it and received many questions on Twitter from people who knew I already owned an Android TV Stick — an iMito MX1 to be precise. They were either wondering about the difference between the devices, either questioning my enthusiasm towards it given that I already have something similar.
After all, it’s easy to be confused. Both serve as an HDMI extension to your TV that makes it a lot smarter than it is, and both seem to play well with Android devices. So what exactly is the difference, and which one should you buy? Read on for the explanation.
I love Netflix. I think it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread (even better than sliced bread!). One thing that Android users have been longing for is a way to stream Netflix on their device — especially since the advent of Android tablets. This is also something that iOS users I know like to hold over my head when rattling off the list of reasons iOS is “superior” to Android…until now. Last week Netflix started rolling out their official streaming app to select Android devices.
