Submission + - Is Chromecast realizing Ubuntu's convergence? (

sfcrazy writes: This $35 device, Chromecast, is turning out to be much more than what Google showed or told us. Not only does it turn your HDTV into external monitor for your Chrome tabs, it can also play local content such as videos, images and music via Chrome. I think this is the kind of convergence Canonical was envisioning with Ubuntu TV, Ubuntu for Android and Ubuntu Edge. Google, without even hyping it packed all of that in one $35 device. You don't need to wait for some 'special' purpose phone with a dock to achieve that convergence; it's only $35 away and it's already here.

The convergence has arrived, it's now up to the developers what they want to Chromecast.
