Google set to unveil Netflix-like game streaming service
Is this the end of the console wars!
Usually, a new player in the video game console industry means further tension between the user bases but Google's arrival is different. The console wars began in earnest in 1989. Nintendo VS Sega split playgrounds around the world right down the middle, tearing BFF's apart sometimes forever. It is just the way things are! If you love games, you love the console that lets you play those games and you must defend its honor at all costs.
But could the end be in sight? Games can now be run on cloud servers and streamed directly to players’ PCs, tablets, TVs, or pretty much anything with a screen. No more need for high powered branded consoles all that will matter is the games you want to play and how you want to play them.
Galaxy Fold will be the name of Samsung’s foldable phone
Are we seeing the start of a new era?
Samsung joins the growing list of hardware companies showing off their take on the foldable phone.
Importantly, Samsung's announcement of the Galaxy Fold is the first foldable phone shown by a leading manufacturer.
The top three manufacturers have over half the market share. Samsung (18%) Apple(18%) Huawei (16%). That's about 250 billion dollars.
With Huawei's foldable phone announcement just 2 days away, I wonder, are we seeing the start of a new smartphone era?
