chromecast gadgetOur Danish niece loves her Google Chromecast, a $35 gizmo that can beam movies from your smartphone to your TV and opens the way to video services like Netflix. Unfortunately, the whole world has already written about it, so here’s something new from Apple TV.

Apple TV is a $99 box that connects to your TV to let you download movies, TV, and music from the Apple store. The latest software update lets Apple TV owners stream stuff to their friends’ TV, using the “Airplay” system.  In other words, you won’t have to download to your own iPad or iPhone first and then show it on a TV. Your stuff will be stored in the cloud and can be beamed to Earth from anywhere.
