In 1988, Wes Cherry was an intern at Microsoft when he created a game that would change the lives of office workers forever. That game was Solitaire. At the time there weren't many desktop computer games and most households still didn't have personal computers. So, out of sheer boredom, Cherry created Solitaire. The rest, as they say, is history. From Great Big Story.
In 1982, when it came to personal computers, IBM was the only game in town. That's until "Compaq Computer," a small Houston startup founded by three friends came along and proceeded to beat Big Blue at its own game. This story is chronicled in a new documentary, "Silicon Cowboys." It wowed audiences at this year's SXSW Film Festival in Austin and opened nationwide Friday. Compaq's co-founder and CEO Rod Canion and director Jason Cohen join "CBS This Morning: Saturday" to discuss the film and Compaq's influence in the computer industry. From CBS This Morning.
Microsoft has promised to bring future Xbox titles to Windows 10, and now Sony is making a similar offer. Soon, you won’t need to own a piece of PlayStation hardware in order to play PlayStation games. The PlayStation Now service came about after Sony paid $380 million to acquire streaming service Gaikai back in 2012. It did take them two years to convert it into PlayStation Now, but all that work means PS4 owners can enjoy playing streamed versions of PS3 titles for a monthly subscription. It’s not cheap though, costing $19.99 for a month or $44.99 for 3 months. However, soon you’ll be able to save some cash by not being forced to buy a console to access the service. Sony has announced that PlayStation Now is being made available on Windows PCs across Europe and North America. From wochit Tech.
