Best of all, perhaps, the Chromecast is wonderfully inexpensive at just $29.99.

Now every vendor on the planet is selling a set-top box or a dongle with the same functionality, often at a cheaper price point.

So will the $30 discount on the Apple TV announced this Monday be enough to keep Apple in the conversation? More →
