Chromecast suppresses Amazon movies

Chromecast ripoff -- Amazon is suppressed by design


Come on Google, get over yourself and play nice with Amazon. You're selling your chromecast, right? But some of us don't like the fact that when we try to cast a tab with an amazon movie running, you disallow the pic. The site is on the screen, but there's no movie. It's suppressed by design. Really?
