Google Chromecast

Google announced the Chromecast, a dongle that attaches to a HDMI port on your TV and allows you to stream content from a mobile device (like a Smartphone orTablet) to your TV.  All for a small price of US$35.  While I do think it’s innovative and could see reasonable demand given the price, I’m not sure I would get one.  Isn’t this similar to WiDi, DLNA, Samsung’s All Share, or Apple’s Airplay?  While I get the distinction of how the content is downloaded (Apple’s Airplay still relies on the device to download content whereas Chromecast actually gets the content itself), I’m still not sold.  I’m not sure there is content on my device that I need to project on a TV and even then, I do have other options.  Hmm.
