Streaming swordfight! Google Chromecast vs. Roku Streaming Stick

For now, Roku’s Streaming Stick comes out the winner in our duel of the dongles. The Roku device is more flexible, more reliable, easier to use for most folks, and has access to tons of apps and content not yet available to Chromecast users. With that said, the decidedly different approach Google has chosen to take with the Chromecast may catch on yet. There’s certainly no shortage of interest in the device, and that may encourage developers to deliver more Chromecast-friendly apps. Time will tell, but for now, we’ll be snuggling up to a bowl of popcorn and our Roku remote – not our smartphone – for our streaming Internet video fix. – Caleb Denison, Digital Trends
