Roku Streaming Stick+ 4K just got a price cut

Google Stadia cloud gaming to be faster than local systems with this trick

For all the benefits that cloud-based game streaming may promise, it will live and fall by one word: latency. Beholden to Internet connections and distance from Google's data servers, Stadia may end up becoming something only a few will be able to enjoy. Like with any problem, however, Google is solving this problem with some machine learning and AI which it dubs as "negative latency".
