MUNICH 2019: Sources and Cables

Munich High End is undoubtedly the largest high-end audio extravaganza in the world. It not only featured some of the best products recently displayed at AXPONA Chicago (another incredible show!), but also a wide array of products thus far unseen on North American shores. I’ve never set eyes on so many turntables, horn loudspeakers, and exotic products in one venue! My “beat” this year was sources and cables—essentially every room at the show. As this was a daunting, if not impossible, task, I focused on those sources and cables I could actually hear in systems, rather than those on static …… Read the full article

xCloud, Microsoft’s answer to PlayStation Now, can stream 3,500 games

By | May 24th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

While Microsoft’s game-streaming service isn’t ready for primetime yet, it’s further along than anyone thought: Project xCloud, which is currently being beta tested by Microsoft employees, can already stream 3,500 games from the cloud with another 1,900 games potentially titles on their way. 

Microsoft unveiled these and other key details today in a new blog on the Xbox Wire, and says even more details will be revealed soon. 

The key points in today’s post are that Microsoft has a number of games that are already compatible with the service from the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and original Xbox game library, and claims that any game published on the Xbox One could be xCloud-compatible without any extra work from developers. 

To stream these games to customers, Microsoft has deployed xCloud servers to data centers across 13 Azure regions – including North America, Europe and Asia – and says that it will continue to build more centers as development continues. 

Just as interestingly, Microsoft says developers like Capcom and Paradox are currently running tests on the servers, and has updated its developer kit to include cloud-specific APIs.… Read the full article

Cutting off Huawei’s access to technology is cutting off innovation

By | May 24th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

I’ve been using mobile phones since the mid-nineties and have seen several companies impact the industry. Motorola and Nokia helped shape much of the earlier years of mobile phones with the latter introducing me to my first “smart” phone with the Communicator. 

Then came BlackBerry that pushed productivity on mobile phones with push email and instant messaging and I was using one all the way till the iPhone grew up. What BlackBerry did for productivity, the iPhone did for touchscreens and that has helped shape the last decade of mobile phones. 

While the iPhone has targeted the premium-end of the market, Android brought smartphone to the masses and the likes of HTC and Samsung allowed Android to compete against the iPhone with premium build quality and new features.… Read the full article
