Last week was all about the Chromecast. Google announced its affordable Apple TV competitor, and we asked you if you intend on getting yourself one or not. While being popular, the Chromecast is definitely not a consensus, as can be seen from the following results:
689 readers voted in this poll, and this was the breakdown: 11% are not getting a Chromecast, and if you’re wondering why, I recommend that you read the interesting comments. 13% don’t plan to, but may change their minds in the future; 17.5% are still not sure about the Chromecast; 18.5% already have one or already ordered one; and 40% of the voters definitely plan on getting one.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
All in all, the Chromecast seems to have caught on, and last week’s comments are full of interesting insights into why the Chromecast is or is not worthwhile. Don’t forget to check out last week’s best comment by Sean P, who won his choice of one of our cool t-shirts. Next week it could be you!
This week’s poll question is: What Do You Think Of The Smartwatch Concept?
In case you’ve missed it, we’re giving away a Pebble Smartwatch. While testing this interesting device, I started wondering about the whole smartwatch concept. Does it really provide something we’re missing, or is it nothing but a gimmick? Regardless of what it really is, the market is getting slowly flooded with more of these watches, and Apple’s own version is hovering above all of them, threatening to materialize one day. Do you own a smartwatch? Do you plan on buying one? What do you think of this whole smartwatch concept? Let’s find out!
What makes the smartwatch useful? What makes it nothing more than a gimmick? What are some good reasons to get one or not get one? Tell us all below.
