I got to try Google Stadia, its new video game streaming service that promises to use the cloud to deliver games to almost any device with a screen — including laptops, tablets, smartphones, and TVs. In the short demo, I got to try "Assassin's Creed Odyssey," streaming via Stadia to a Google Pixelbook laptop.  It played well, and the graphics looked very nice, but once you notice the little bit of input lag, it's hard to un-notice it. The problem is that it's hard to tell, in a short demo like...

Here's why Spotify is declaring war on Apple and not Google (AAPL)

Spotify wants Europe's competition watchdog to examine Apple for the way it runs the App Store. Spotify has complained that the App Store's 30% tax on in-app subscriptions makes it less competitive than Apple's own streaming service, Apple Music. But the obvious question is why Spotify isn't also going after Google, which also charges a levy for apps on its app store and has a music streaming service. The problem boils down to the fact that Apple won't allow Spotify to advertise that subscript...

I wrote about my positive experience switching to Android at the time and received dozens of e-mails from Android users telling me to wait until I realized what havi...

Apple is now one of the biggest investors in research and development, and critics are wondering what it's getting for its money (AAPL)
