    Had you forgotten about Google Stadia? Here's a reminder, as the service has just launched on Apple platforms, though with a caveat. As Microsoft works on getting its game-streaming service compliant with Apple's restrictive requirements, Google has bypassed that entirely. If you're on iOS, there's no app to download in order to play Stadia games; you simply need to be on the latest firmware--14.3--and visit stadia.google.com, to which you'll instantly be able to stream games to your mobile device.

    I saw mention of this the other day. Hopefully this means we can move away from the stupid native app model.

    Anyway all for thumbing the nose at IOS/apple.

    I believe this is what they call a "pro gamer move."

    Geforce NOW does that too I believe. Microsoft will probably end up doing the same thing.

    It's like a bunch of rich kids fighting over who gets the golden diamond-studded ball to not play football with.

    Geforce now does the same thing. I honestly hope we start seeing more of this happening.

    He who makes the dominant game streaming service is going to make all the money.

    Apple device owners have proven to be foolish enough to part with their cash to rent slightly shiny lights and things the rest of the world expects compensation for should it not be there and working from stock in the factory.

    Apple also seems to want to maintain an iron grip on what goes.

    Seems like something Google/Alphabet would throw down in on.

    What is this dung? I got android, and don't want to install more apps in it. So, in order for me to circumvent their app enforcement, I need to get an iPhone?
    What gives, boys?
    I hate it that everything now has an app.
