XCloud project: the test phase will end on iOS, it smells of scorch

Xbox hope to return his XCloud project accessible to the greatest number, to allow everyone to enjoy a large catalog of games in cloud gaming. The service will take shape September 15 with its arrival on Android via the application Xbox Game Pass, while it will be accessible via the subscription Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at € 12.99.

Ultimately, Microsoft wanted to bring the offer to iOS by the end of the year, and in the following months to PC. A very limited test phase was also underway on the devices. Apple, more it will soon stop, without continuing on the commercial version. Beta testers received a notification that their access to XCloud project would stop on September 11, which the manufacturer confirmed to The Verge.

Our Project xCloud testing period has ended on iOS and we are focused on delivering cloud games as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to Android customers starting September 15th. Our ambition is to develop cloud gaming via Xbox Game Pass by making it available on all devices.

The ambitions of Xbox therefore remain unchanged, with the objective of bringing the Xbox Game Pass wherever it is possible. But on iOS, so it seems more complicated than expected, certainly due to the policy ofApple which already means that Stadia is still not available on theApp Store. Is the US giant seeking to limit competition with its Apple Arcade and its other services? Despite everything, the door to the iOS range is not yet closed for XCloud project, but at least you have to be patient.

“In Lebanon, the revolution is entering a new phase “

In Tripoli, the revolution that had begun in the songs continued, to shots of Molotov cocktails and rubber bullets. Dentist and revolutionary of the first hour, Ramy Finge describes a day of “full madness “ Saturday, June 13, in his hometown in the north of Lebanon.

“Oddly enough, a convoy of 8 or 9 trucks full of sugar and rice has gone through the Bab el-Tebbané, the volcano of the revolution, at a peak time for heading to Syria. “ Clashes with police began when protesters have blocked the road, and were only completed in the middle of the night.

“Day and night for the past two weeks, we see these trucks come from the ports of lebanese towards the syrian border so that there is more rice in our souks “, was surprised at this Tripolitain. “If they are sent by the UN, why are they registered in Syria, and do not have any logo ? Why the goods are not unloaded directly into the ports syrians from Latakia or Tartus ? “

In Tripoli, the sunni, each suspects the Hezbollah (shiite) to organise the supply of a syrian regime, also, struggling, with the support of the lebanese army. Result : while unemployment continues to rise, the incomes of the Lebanese to fall and the domestic currency to depreciate, the anger is still up a notch.

The young people return to their forces in the morning

“The revolution is entering a new phase “notes Ramy Finge, whose distributions of hot meals to needy families, which started with the uprising, is now more indispensable than ever. “Young people are no longer going to stop. They resume their forces in the morning but in the evening, they stand out. Now, I expect the worst. “

In Beirut, too, dozens of people marched peacefully in the city centre, echoing the slogans of the movement triggered the October 17, 2019 against a ruling class almost unchanged for decades, before that hundreds of young men arrived on scooters began to throw stones and traffic signs on the forces of law and order.

The words initial has now been added to a social despair and financial, every day more serious. In principle, indexed to the u.s. dollar since 1997 at a fixed rate of 1 507 pounds for a dollar, the lebanese lira has dropped this week on the parallel market (reaching almost 6 000 pounds to 1 dollar) : a disaster in a country that imports almost all it consumes. Over-indebted and in default of payment since march, Lebanon is now waiting for assistance from the IMF to get out of the rut.

The limits of independence

In a televised speech to the accents of drama broadcast Saturday 13 June, the first minister Hassan Diab has tried to reassure the Lebanese, their affirming his determination to continue his “fierce battle against corruption “.

“Some people try to prevent the government to reveal the corruption system, he launched. Please be aware that we found many of the keys to this black box. There is still a lot to update, with documents and facts, but this system will collapse on those who lurk in its corners. “

But Tuesday, 9 June, his government had endorsed a list of appointments to the central Bank, the Commission of control of financial markets or to the Board of the public service imposed by the political parties on the traditional base-denominational, showing the limits of its “independence “.

Emergency measures that did not come

“The declaration of Hassan Diab has not calmed down the revolutionaries, on the contrary “ensures Ramy Finge, convinced that this government “is only there to save time, to Hezbollah and to the other “.

“This is a time for action. What was expected was not to reform but to emergency measures. They are not coming “written from his side, Joseph Maïla, a professor of international relations at Essec, in the lebanese daily L’orient-Le Jour.

“The best way would be to expedite the implementation of a pole special criminal intended to try those responsible for a break to State the most spectacular of all the time and prevent them from diverting the attention of the citizens to deadly unrest. “


Phase 2: return to school in Valle d’Aosta, also from May – Valle d’Aosta

At the exam of the Executive. Councilor, particular region conditions

The Valle d’Aosta regional council is examining a “return plan” to schools which does not exclude the return to class in May and throughout June, but which also looks to September. The councilor for education Chantal Certan reiterated that “the social aspect and the role of the school must be taken into account for the families who have to leave”. “I don’t know the situations of schools in other regions – he added – but in Valle d’Aosta 80% of the classes (or 820 out of over 1,100) have less than 20 pupils, there are mountain schools with a teacher-pupil ratio from one to three to one to five. The conditions are particular, therefore it is possible to plan to return with reduced hours and numbers. In this regard, a first draft of the Return Plan, with a health protocol, is under examination by the Government regional”.
“We believe that doing this type of work – said the President of the Region, Renzo Testolin – can be positive in order not to find ourselves late, even if the opening will be in September. A process of discussion and sharing with the school leaders and with local authorities “.
