There are 400 games in development for Google Stadia

Buser said Google will share more information about new-game release windows “in the future.”

Google has been playing catch-up since the debut of Stadia one year ago. Before launch, executives promised Stadia would have a handful of unique and ambitious features, including native 4K play, social and streamer-specific capabilities, and a large library of games. However, many of these didn’t go live until months later, and some are still missing entirely.

While Google has added more than 100 games to Stadia over the past year, its selection of high-profile titles is slim, especially when compared with Microsoft’s xCloud platform. That said, Google is working on securing sought-after games, and it’s added notable titles including Doom Eternal, Borderlands 3 and Hotline Miami to its library, while Cyberpunk 2077 is incoming.

Additionally, Google has two first-party studios in Montreal and Los Angeles, an exclusive deal with Harmonix, and a roster of veteran game developers and producers overseeing everything, including Stadia head Phil Harrison, Stadia Games and Entertainment leader Jade Raymond, and Playa Vista studio head Shannon Studstill. In late 2019, Google also purchased Typhoon Studios, developer of the charming sci-fi exploration game Journey to the Savage Planet.

The company has yet to unleash the full strength of its cloud-gaming arsenal, and if Buser is to be believed, Google hasn’t abandoned Stadia just yet. His comments come amid a flurry of deals designed to get more people playing Stadia, including a tentative rollout on iOS and an offer giving YouTube Premium subscribers a $99 Stadia Premiere Edition bundle for free through the end of the year.

Elvie discounts its smart breast pumps by 15 percent for Black Friday

Buy Willow at Buy Buy Baby - $399

Of all the things to go “smart,” the upgrade to wireless, the Bluetooth-connected breast pumps has been one of the most unexpected -- and yet most necessary. Elvie is such a system: the pump, battery and container all fit into an egg-shaped wearable that allows the pumping mom to walk around unhindered by wires or tethered to an outlet. This buys back a lot of time, which along with sleep, is one of the things new parents need the most of. 

In our review, we found the Elvie pump comfortable to wear and overall easy to operate. The batteries lasted a good amount of time before needing a charge, the pieces weren’t a pain to clean and it was very quiet when in operation. However, it didn’t always function smoothly -- occasionally an error resulted in no or little milk collection and the app was a bit finicky. Still, it was well worth the quirks to be able to pump while washing bottles, or soothing babies, or doing laundry.

A competing pump, the Willow, is also currently discounted $100 on Buy Buy Baby bringing it down to $399 for a dual pump kit. The Willow system is spill-proof and works with either reusable containers or disposable bags. It also features a “flip to finish” technology that helps save more collected milk, but is both larger and louder than the Elvie.

‘Rainbow Six Siege’ has a 4K 120 fps mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X

Resolution mode, meanwhile, will see the PS5 and Xbox Series X target 60 fps while maintaining a 4K resolution, while the Series S will downsample the game from 1728p. With a competitive game like Rainbow Six Siege, you have to imagine most people will go for the performance mode and never look back. Still, it’s nice of Ubisoft to offer the option to play the game at a higher fidelity, particularly for those who don’t have 120Hz TVs. 

As for console-specific enhancements, you can expect all the usual improvements. On Xbox Series X/S, Rainbow Six Siege will take advantage of Microsoft’s Quick Resume functionality, allowing you to switch between the game and other supported titles nearly instantaneously. On PS5, meanwhile, the game will take advantage of all the haptic enhancements built into its DualSense controller. For example, the trigger will be easier to pull when you’re using a lighter weapon like a pistol. Lastly, they’ll be support for cross-gen play between the same family of consoles so you can continue to play with your friends as they sort out their console upgrades.

The update is free if you’re upgrading to the next-gen version of your current console. So if you own the game on PS4, you won’t have to buy it again on PS5. What’s more, your progression and in-game items will carry over. The one caveat here is that if you own the game on a disc, you’ll need a console with a disc drive to get a free upgrade.

Senate Democrats call on YouTube to pull videos with election lies

The senators point to one example of a YouTube video that falsely claims there’s evidence of voter fraud in Michigan, noting that it has more than 5 million views.

Misinformation isn’t a new problem for YouTube, but the US election has thrown this issue into stark relief. The platform rolled out a few policies earlier this year designed to curtail election lies, pledging to remove videos encouraging voting interference and those based on information surfaced in hacks on the democratic process. It also added panels underneath election-related videos offering “authoritative information” on the situation.

Still, YouTube has allowed videos challenging the outcome of the presidential election to remain live, and fringe, right-wing channels that spread much of this misinformation are experiencing a period of growth on the platform.

The Democratic senators have outlined five questions for YouTube and they’re requesting a response by December 8th. The prompts are as follows, as listed in the letter:

  1. Will YouTube commit to removing content containing false or misleading information as to the outcome of the 2020 elections and the upcoming elections in Georgia? If not, why?

  2. What steps has YouTube implemented since announcing its prohibition on voter suppression content?

  3. What steps will YouTube take to ensure that the platform is free from content that suppresses voting, incites violence, or makes false claims concerning the casting of ballots surrounding the January 2021 Georgia run-off elections?

  4. Please provide our offices with any YouTube research concerning the platform’s amplification of groups or organizations using YouTube to spread election misinformation.

  5. How much in ad revenue did YouTube receive from videos showing election result misinformation?

CD Projekt Red shows off ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ next-gen gameplay

Still, you can see some differences, particularly in how the PS5 and Xbox Series X handle reflections, with there being more life to those elements on the new consoles. Unfortunately, one thing the videos don’t show is how the game will play on the base PS4 and Xbox One. Provided CD Projekt Red doesn’t delay the Cyberpunk at the 11th hour, we’ll likely get a more detailed rundown of all the graphics differences between each console version once publications like Digital Foundry get their hands on the game.

YouTube suspends OANN for spreading coronavirus-related misinformation

YouTube has temporarily barred One American News Network from posting new videos, according to Axios. The one-week suspension, during which time the channel won’t be able to monetize its content, comes after OANN shared a video that broke the platform’s COVID-19 misinformation rules.

The network has been a favorite of President Donald Trump following his recent split with Fox News. Today’s suspension is the first time YouTube has taken action against OANN, which has a history of promoting conspiracy theories. Moreover, it comes on the same day that Senate Democrats called on the company to do something about election-related misinformation.

Netflix removes ‘Chappelle’s Show’ after a request from Dave Chappelle

In removing the series, Netflix’s motivations likely weren’t as altruistic as Chappelle presents them. The company has a deal with the comedian for exclusive access to his standup specials. Had Netflix not honored his request, there’s a good chance he wouldn’t have wanted to work with the company in the future. Maintaining a relationship with Chappelle, at a time when competitors like HBO Max and Apple TV are signing Conan O’Brien and Jon Stewart to deals, is far more important to Netflix than whatever value the company was going to extract out of streaming an old show everyone has seen.    

Chappelle went on to ask the audience and fans not to watch Chappelle’s Show — which is still available to stream on Comedy Central, CBS All Access and HBO Max. “I’m not asking you to boycott any network — boycott me. Boycott Chappelle’s Show. Do not watch it unless they pay me.”

SpaceX prepares Starship SN8 prototype for high-altitude test flight

In September 2019 Elon Musk said he hoped SpaceX would be able to perform an orbital test of its Starship vehicle within six months, and while that didn’t happen the company is apparently ready to perform a high-altitude flight test. In a tweet, the exec said that the latest prototype, dubbed SN8, had undergone a successful static fire, and that a flight test to an altitude of about 15 km could happen as soon as next week.

The folks at NASASpaceflight live streamed video of the triple Raptor engine firing, and posted a clip of the event on Twitter. Based on notices to locals in the area, they report that November 30th is a likely date for the test, so keep an eye out — you may see that “flying water tower” go higher than ever before.

FCC upholds ZTE’s status as a national security threat

It would cost US carriers over $1.8 billion to replace all ZTE and Huawei equipment, according to a previous FCC estimate. The Senate approved a $1 billion budget to help the carriers replace them earlier this year, but the government has yet to find the funds needed for the program.

In its announcement for the rejection of ZTE’s petition, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said:

“With today’s order, we are taking another important step in our ongoing efforts to protect US communications networks from security risks. At the next Open Meeting on December 10, the Commission will vote on rules to implement the Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Reimbursement program to help carriers remove and replace untrusted equipment from their networks, months before the statutory deadline. Now it is more vital than ever that Congress appropriate funds so that our communications networks are protected from vendors that threaten our national security.”

Pai also tweeted that ZTE didn’t dispute that the Chinese government imposes legal controls on Chinese companies to provide access “for the government’s intelligence gathering activities.”

As Bloomberg notes, the FCC’s announcement didn’t mention Huawei at all. The agency recently announced (PDF) that it’s extending the timeframe to review its petition, since Huawei submitted 5,000 pages with comments in response to being designated as a security threat. It’s expected to release an official response to Huawei’s request on December 11th.
