AndroidCentral Responds To Criticism That Google Did Not Make Chromecast's Power Requirements Clear

26 July 2013

Android Central :

A … certain segment of fans … have gotten it into their heads that Google played down the fact that Chromecast needs USB power to work. They are wrong.

Whatever. It doesn’t matter whether Google misled the press about this or not1 at its event. The reality is it does have this limitation and that will hurt the product’s popularity. It makes it too geeky for most market segments.

1 Even after Android Central’s article, I’d still say Google skipped over the point very swiftly, enough to cozen people and give the wrong impression.
