Microsoft may be preparing to test mouse and keyboard support for Xbox Cloud Gaming
What do you wish to know Xbox Cloud Gaming is out there on telephones, the online, and PCs as a part of Xbox Sport Move Final. You possibly can stream dozens of video games over the online, ultimate for low-power non-gaming PCs. However you’re restricted to gamepad and contact controls. Now it appears to be like like Microsoft is on the brink of check mouse and keyboard inputs with Xbox Cloud Gaming. Mouse and keyboard help for Xbox Cloud Gaming has been talked about for a very long time, and now we’re seeing the primary indicators that it might be within the testing section. In the event you’re a part of the Home windows Gaming Insider bundle through the Xbox Insider app on Home windows 10 or 11, you will have entry to a extra superior replace ring for the Xbox app and Xbox Sport Bar. A latest replace for the Xbox app has barely...

Logitech G and Tencent are building a cloud gaming handheld set to release later this year

Logitech G and Tencent are building a cloud gaming handheld set to release later this year
Logitech G, the gaming-focused branch of the maker of PC and console peripherals, has announced a partnership with Tencent Games to release a “cloud gaming handheld” later this year. The two companies are in talks with the teams behind Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now, which presumably means that these services will be supported out of the box. They will allow gamers to play AAA titles on the go. The announcement talks solely of cloud gaming – it’s not even clear if any games will be able to run on the device itself. This sets it apart from the likes of the Steam Deck, which is focused on local gaming (it can do cloud gaming too, but it’s cumbersome without an onboard 5G or even 4G connection). Renders of Tencent's "PC Console" from a patent filed in 2020 This could be unrelated, but earlier this...

Amazon, Microsoft, Google vie for Boeing cloud contract

161121 boeing logo
The Boeing Co., which has its corporate headquarters in Chicago, is reportedly at the center of a bidding war between Amazon, Microsoft and Google for a cloud computing contract. (Boeing Photo) Amazon, Microsoft and Google are involved in a bidding process to provide Boeing with cloud computing services, a contract that’s expected to be worth at least $1 billion over several years, The Information reports. Today’s report is attributed to four people with knowledge of the matter. We’ve reached out to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud as well as Boeing, but this is typically something such companies doesn’t talk about publicly during negotiations — as The Information found out. (For what it’s worth, representatives of Google Cloud and Microsoft sent us “no comment” emails.) The Information says AWS considers the...

REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoOracle Corp (ORCL.N) on Tuesday launched a cloud computing service powered by data center chips from Ampere Computing based on technology from Arm Ltd, the second major cloud company to offer an Arm-based service after Amazon.com's (AMZN.O) Amazon Web Services.Cloud providers are some of the biggest buyers of chips because they rent out the computing power they generate to thousands of other companies. Until recently, however, almost all the chips cloud services bought came from Intel Corp (INTC.O) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.O) because most business software is written to run on those processors.That began to change in 2018 when Amazon, the largest cloud...

Remote Work, Cloud Computing Have Implications for Lease Accounting

Auditors Article 202105250631
Companies are notoriously lax in preparing for new accounting standards, such as the forthcoming lease accounting standard for private companies. However, as Deloitte notes in a new poll, some businesses may be even further behind than usual given changes from the pandemic. For instance, real estate needs are changing for companies with employees working remotely. With that adoption of remote work, they may need to exit their lease, modify their lease or execute a sale-and-leaseback transaction. As those scenarios play out, different accounting treatments are needed, according to Deloitte. Deloitte also notes that recent migrations to the cloud could also have an impact as companies adopt the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s cloud computing accounting guidance. Under the lease accounting standard, Deloitte says companies could configure...

Going to the Moon via the Cloud

Before the widespread availability of this kind of computing, organizations built expensive prototypes to test their designs. “We actually went and built a full-scale prototype, and ran it to the end of life before we deployed it in the field,” said Brandon Haugh, a core-design engineer, referring to a nuclear reactor he worked on with the U.S. Navy. “That was a 20-year, multibillion dollar test.”Today, Mr. Haugh is the director of modeling and simulation at the California-based nuclear engineering start-up Kairos Power, where he hones the design for affordable and safe reactors that Kairos hopes will help speed the world’s transition to clean energy.Nuclear energy has long been regarded as one of the best options for zero-carbon electricity production — except for its prohibitive cost. But Kairos Power’s advanced reactors are being...
