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...

Logitech Lift vertical ergonomic mouse: Fixing wrists at a good price

Logitech Lift vertical ergonomic mouse: Fixing wrists at a good price
Ever since I got a vertical mouse about 6 months ago, I’ve been using it daily and never looked back. My wrist was starting to “itch” inside, so I had to do something quickly before it develops into something more serious. The mouse of my choice at that time is the Logitech MX Vertical. At the time of purchase, the mouse was already discontinued so I had to buy from some other retailers that still have leftover stock. It’s not perfect and it was rather expensive. Then recently, Logitech announced their new vertical mouse – the Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse. It’s cheaper, fixed a lot of issues, and has a lot of upgrades over the MX Vertical. So in today’s video, I’m going to share my user experience after using the new Logitech Lift vertical mouse for the past 2 weeks. Also, treat this as a review plus comparison with the...

Intel Labs Moving Mountains With Neuromorphic Computing And Photonics Technologies

Intel While the industry loves to combine “R&D” and we see this in every tech company’s P&L, research and development are very different. Research is high risk, market making investments and discoveries that are unattached to products. Development is applying that research and other’s IP to create an end product or services. Development is less risky. Very few companies do research, and Intel has had a heritage in research for decades. One of the most exciting aspects of working as a tech analyst is, quite frankly, being one of the first to learn of these new, research-driven, cutting-edge technologies coming down the pipeline in the not-so-distant future—from the expected to the truly mind-boggling. As such, I always look...
