    We already have YouTube and Netflix on TV and more. E.g. Xbox 360. Google is also copying SmartGlass — blatantly.

    Tim Acheson – “We already have YouTube and Netflix on TV and more. E.g. Xbox 360. Google is also copying SmartGlass — blatantly.”

    Chromecast and Smartglass are not the same, therefore Google did not copy Microsoft’s Smartglass. Microsoft users have to stream content using the video game system Xbox, Chromecast simply plugs into the TV’s HDMI port and streams video using Google’s Chrome browser or Apple’s Safari. Apple & Roku had the idea of creating a device that focuses on streaming entertainment content long before Smartglass. MS tried to copy Apple’s Airplay, but made it burdensome and expensive for their faithful customers. In addition, Many consumer and prosumer amplifiers also have Airplay integrated in their system long before Smartglass.

    It is evident that Apple will improve upon Microsoft’s gaming technology with their AppleTV just as they did with other companies technologies, including, but not limited to computers, MP3 players, Smartphones and tablets.

    I would not go as far as to say MS is irrelevant as there are plenty of consumers (like yourself) and individuals in the enterprise market that will continue to support the software company.

    Please explain how Google copied Smartglass as your comment above lacks substance and significance.
