In case you had any doubt about its prerelease name. More in our Chromecast forums.
I don't get it
They were going to call it chromekey. They changed their minds. They didn't change the screen yet.

I get that, i just wonder why it's news :P
Some people never knew that, like me.
Nice save ;-)
same here. androidcentral is fiending for stories
It's marketed as the Chrome Cast but this screen is calling the chrome key?
Pre-release name was Chrome key
That explains why I kept wanting to call it ChromeKey when talking to friends about it. It was buried somewhere in my head.
But makes sense - ChromeCast is the "send to"-tech and you access that with your ChromeKey. But I guess it's too hard to explain two new things the the broader masses ;-)
I'm glad they went with Chromecast. Chromekey sounds like something you'd open your door with.
You mean your ChromeDoor or Nexus Door ;)
Rumors of a "ChromeKey" have been floating around for a little over a month. I believe this is what Phil is referring to with this post. The above linked post is just one of several around that time frame that had information about a secret ChromeKey product.
Is this the one that you don't need the USB power cable? :) >::<
Correct. Assuming you have HDMI 1.4
You win the internets today
Am I the only one that has a usb connection On their TV?
No. Mine have USB connections too.
*Insert reference to the band Chroma Key here*
Chromekey sounds too much like Chroma key which is totally different and too confusing as you can see by this wikipedia: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chroma_key
wait, does this mean theres an update for the chromecast?
The update is only for the people whose devices were still being recognized as Chromekeys.
Perhaps the "service" was to be ChromeCast and the device itself Chromekey.
Hmmm... Wonder if that's what Phil was running on the last regular Podcast. Remember the TV in the background???
ChromeCast is not a service, it's just remote browser, services are on websoites :p
Who do I talk to about the last 3 minutes of my life back?

It took you three minutes to look at a picture and read a sentence? You have bigger issues to worry about rather than trying to find "3" minutes of lost time.
It does somewhat resemble a key.
Maybe the Autobots already had "Chromekey" trademarked..
