Google Is Aiming at Apple with an Open Airplay Alternative

Apple's AirPlay functionality has been very popular with users of Apple devices and compatible products. Google, who significantly favors open software and architecture, is set to aim directly at Apple with an open AirPlay alternative. Google is reportedly working on an alternative, and hopes to bring a number of device and software manufacturers on board with its plan. The goal is to provide the industry with open technology to exchange data with second screens and TV connected devices.

This could mean a future where devices from different manufacturers are able to wirelessly stream video and audio to your TV or other device within the home. Apple's AirPlay service only works with Apple products and Apple approved accessories.

Google recently introduced something similar that works only on Google TV devices and Android devices. The service allows users to open videos on their Android smartphones and then have compatible TVs play the content back automatically. There is no indication of when the Google tech might come to market.

The Tube. It’s the only place where you can firmly plant your nose into someone elses’ armpit without them even flinching. Don’t make eye contact though, and if you do, just hope you don’t turn to look at the window and accidentally re-make eye contact in the reflection. However, if you still want to travel on the London Underground, DLR or the Overground, you will be able to pay your way with your phone via the EE Cash on Tap app. The ...
