AndroidCentral Responds To Criticism That Google Did Not Make Chromecast's Power Requirements Clear

Android Central :

A … certain segment of fans … have gotten it into their heads that Google played down the fact that Chromecast needs USB power to work. They are wrong.

Whatever. It doesn’t matter whether Google misled the press about this or not at its event. The reality is it does have this limitation and that will hurt the product’s popularity. It makes it too geeky for most market segments.
