On that Chromebook free 3 month Disney+ subscription: Read the fine print

The folks at Google behind the Chromebook "Offers" and "bonuses" system worked with Disney to connect with the newest, biggest streaming media service Disney+. When users "activate" a new Chromebook this late 2019, they get three free months of Disney+, but there is some fine print. First, you'll need to have a "new" Chromebook - the parameters of this aren't exactly clear up front, but chances are you're gonna have to have a Chromebook that's still up for sale as a "new" device in stores right now.*

Google Stadia players complain Chromecast Ultra overheats, shuts down

Google Stadia players complain Chromecast Ultra overheats, shuts down

Stadia is already off to a rough start and the last thing it needs are reports of potential hardware problems with its "primary" device. While the appeal of Google's Stadia game streaming platform is that you can play on almost any device and operating system, the tech giant is positioning the Chromecast Ultra and the Stadia Controller as the best way to enjoy the service. That, however, flies in the face of reports that the Chromecast Ultra gets too hot to touch until its forcibly shuts down and boots users out of their game.

Google Stadia Founders codes have all shipped, confusion continues

Google's foray into game streaming is off to a very bad start. That fact is even more painful for Founders, those who put their faith in the Stadia promise the earliest. It is only now that all Founders Edition access codes have been sent out, at least according to Google, more than two days after the service went live. That phase of the launch may be over but some of the finer details continue to unravel and continue to catch Stadia subscribers off guard.

Google Stadia as a Christmas gift: 2 good factors, 1 bad

Today we're going to look at a set of factors which will play into your decision to get Google Stadia as a Christmas (or any other holiday) gift this holiday season. I've decided to use Christmas in this example because it's what I celebrate in late December each year with the giving of the gifts and the gluttony of the foods. Google Stadia is an interesting proposition for Christmas because it offers both good and bad possibilities for both Christmas Day and the person for whom you'll be grabbing said gift.

Google Stadia Founders are furious over “first come, first served” mishap

Google Stadia Founders are furious over “first come, first served” mishap

Stadia is supposed to represent the future of gaming, or at least one possible future that revolves around streaming. You buy, not rent, a game to play, run it on Google's massive data centers, and have it streamed to almost any device, with some AI and machine learning magic to help cut back on natural latency from this back and forth process. In reality, however, the launch of Google first formal foray into the gaming market under its own name is turning out to be quite the mess and the harshest words are coming from the platform's earliest believers who now feel they have been deceived by the company's sugary words and promises.
