Chromecast 1 vs 2

Chromecast 1 vs 2

youtube_chr1vs2This is the WaysToWatch.com Chromecast 1 vs 2 review. The original Chromecast was a new approach to streaming movies and tv shows. It was small and easy to install. And it quickly gained nearly 20% of the streaming market. Google announced the new Chromecast in September. A new year, a new model, and hopefully significant improvements.

Chromecast, What’s The Same

The new Chromecast 2 largely works the same way as the original Chromecast. They both connect with HDMI, wi-fi and USB for power. Apps such as Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Now have the option to stream through Chromecast. Any laptop with the Chrome web browser can mirror its screen on your television. Both play simple games. And the price has not changed. The new Chromecast is $35 as well.

New Chromecast, What’s Different?

So, what is different? The design is different. The HDMI connector magnetically attaches to the main circular body. The new Chromecast comes in 3 different colors; red, yellow and black. Why different colors? Once I plug this device into the back of my television I will rarely look at it, if ever. So, is Google just trying to put an old device in a new package?

The only significant difference is the speed of the wireless connection. The new Chromecast has 802.11 ac wifi. Let’s see if it is noticeably faster?

Wow, this is noticeably faster.

So, who should buy the new Chromecast 2? This is not a device you should get to replace your original Chromecast. If you have a 4k TV, you can skip the new Chromecast as a streaming device, because it doesn’t support 4k. If you have an additional tv to which you would like to add a second or third chromecast, the new chromecast with its affordable price of $35, is a great choice for anyone with an HD tv or a current chromecast owner who needs a new one for a second or third tv.

Only people who need a second Chromecast for a second television should buy the new Chromecast. The technical specs aren’t significantly better and it doesn’t support 4k, so there isn’t much there to justify an upgrade. At a price of $35, this is an affordable way to stream to your HDTV.

Thanks for watching my quick comparison of the original Chromecast to the new Chromecast. Or as some would say it 1st gen vs 2nd gen.

Amazon Fire TV (2015) Review

Amazon Fire TV 2015 Review

This is the WaysToWatch.com review of the 2015 Amazon Fire TV. Does it live up to the hype? How does it rank amongst the new streaming devices from Google and Apple?

Amazon Fire TV Design

It features the same design from the previous model. There is not much more than a square box. But who cares about the exterior? It is about how it feels and performs.

Amazon Fire TV Remote

The remote is well made, but there are issues with the back of the remote. It is hard to remove it. After working through the back of the remote, the remote actually feels really good in my hand. It works well and is really responsive. The iOS Fire TV App is helpful and easy to use.

Streaming On The Amazon Fire TV

It performs well for streaming, but is limited when it comes to gaming. Amazon’s ASAP feature aims to eliminate buffering time by assuming what you will watch. Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime work on Fire TV. If you have a Plex Media Server, good news, the Fire TV can stream movies from the server.

Alexa on Amazon

Amazon’s Alexa voice service can play music, do searches, check sports scores, and provides weather forecast.

X-Ray, FreeTime On The Amazon Fire TV

Another feature from Amazon for the Fire TV is X-Ray. X-ray gives you information about a movie or TV show, like which actors are in a particular scene. Parent can use FreeTime as their parental control tool. All of the main streaming services are available on the Fire TV. The user interface on the Fire TV can be confusing, overall it is a decent streaming box.

Transcendence Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide

transcendence_feature

Transcendence was really cool. The bad reception by credits was unwarranted. If anything, I would say that the movie was misrepresented in the trailers and other marketing material. It is a lot slower than what the trailers represented, but the movie was really well paced. The acting, beginning with Johnny Depp in the lead, was good.

Transcendence will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 22, 2014. This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital options.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide


the_amazing_spiderman_2_feature

I am not totally sure why there was so much negative press around this movie, but I enjoyed it. Sure, there were a few corny moments. Well, actually, Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) was not a highlight. But, then again, I am a fan of all things Spider-Man so I am biased and willing to overlook its shortcomings and appreciate its strong points. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does a great job of drawing you in emotionally. While watching the movie you care about what happens to Peter Parker and the characters to whom he is connected. This movie definitely leaves you feeling intense emotions.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Blu-ray and DVD will be released on August 19,2014. This buyer’s guide will be continually updated as more information becomes available.

I did not totally know what to expect from a movie about interlocking blocks. Like most people, I played with Legos as a kid and had fond memories of the brand, but I could not conceive of how a movie would be developed based on the toy. Phil Lord and Chris Miller wrote a fantastic script, and The Lego Movie was a surprise hit. It made over $440 million worldwide. It has scores of 96% and 82 from Rottentomatoes and Metacritic, respectively. I enjoyed this movie in the theater, it was unlike anything I’ve seen before. It is a must-have for any family with young children. Well, actually, it is a fun movie for anyone to have.

Audiences ignored the critics and showed up by the bus load to watch Ride Along. Nearly every review panned the movie and expected it to fail badly at the box office, but with over $140 million in tickets sales the film, made for only $25 million, was extraordinary success. In fact, the sequel is already in development. The talent associated with this movie is notable. Ice Cube is a familiar face, Kevin Hart though familiar is now a rising start and director Tim Story is on a career upswing.
