    Nice to see the av companies spreading fear so people buy their chappy products.

      Yeah I’ve never been a big fan of scare tactics to get people to buy products either. It seems rather underhanded to have to frighten people to use your product eh?

      Personally, I think they should make apps that do other things to improve your phone experience and let anti-virus be a side function instead of the main function…but that’s just me and what I’d do based on what I read from you guys (the readers/viewers) :P

    I regret buying a Chromecast.
    Roku has streaming of local video.
    If you enjoy online content providers, Roku is way ahead of chromecast in selection.

    Anyone who owns a Chromecast is simply waiting for it to deliver the functionality one though he was buying.

    And chromecast may never deliver.
