Amazon Prime Video and Chromecast Make for a Winning Combo

Amazon India has just announced the launching of Amazon Prime Video at a very nominal price of Rs 499 per year. In fact, if you happen to have Amazon Prime membership, this service is available to you at no additional cost.

So if you want to play a movie available on Amazon Prime Video on your Chromecast connected TV from your Android phone, here are the very simple steps:


  1. Install Google Home app on your Android phone.If you have a Chromecast device connected to your TV, you would find that device automatically showing once you run Google Home App.
  2. Start the TV connected to the Chromecast device. Change the input mode on the TV to reflect the HDMI port to which the Chromecast device is connected.
  3. One you have the Chromecast default screen visible on the TV, start the Google Home app. Click on the hamburger menu on the top left to expand the left panel. In that panel, select,  Cast screen/audio (highlighted in yellow below).


  4. In the next screen below, click on Cast Screen/audio. 

 


It will show your screen on TV. Next, go to the Amazon Prime Video. Click the video you wish to watch on bigger screen and enjoy thoue full experience on a larger screen. In this way you can enjoy your favourite movies, TV shows etc on your TV screen by projecting it from your Android mobile phone Amazom Prime Video app.

You would be surprised how easy it is. Welcome to the API economy!

Rediscovering Osterwalder's Business Model Canvas

Of late I have found myself very obsessed with Alex Osterwalder's business model canvas. It seems to be all over the place - in workshops, training sessions, CEO talks in B-Schools and in generally every intellectually sounding talk!

Having heard this turn business model at the turn of the century when all sort of logic-defying business ideas were bandied about as unique business models, I had become programmed to turn an instant sceptic whenever this term was used in presentations. Thanks to this refreshing new approach, which appears as smooth as Swiss Chocolate, I found myself forced to look at the 9 blocks of Osterwalder's business model which seem to present a more complete picture. Of late, I have been part of few envisioning exercises myself and found this model very handy, though I do add my own spice to it, such as using colour code in that box which reflects significant innovation and is critical for the value proposition.

Microsoft Acquires GitHub. My thoughts!

My advice is, watch before you jump in joy at Microsoft acquisition of GitHub. The reasons are as follows:

A. Microsoft has a very questionable record about making meaningful sense with many of its big-ticket acquisitions. Cases in point - Skype(Loosely hanging in its portfolio, we used it a decade back, now we don't), Nokia(yes, the company we loved), Yammer(we used it then, we have …
