Adventures in Streaming - AppleTV vs Chromecast

by Norphy on 24th March 2014 at 10:29 PM
So, in the fruity corner we have the Apple TV. In the red, green and yellow corner we have the Google Chromecast. Which is better? There's only one way to find out!



Ahem, sorry.

I've owned an AppleTV since just after Apple released the second generation iOS version so probably for two and a half years. It's been sitting underneath my TV ever since doing stirling

Adventures in Macland... my experiences with ConfigMgr 2012 and Macs Part 1

by Norphy on 22nd March 2013 at 06:12 PM
