Hey, good morning! We kick off the week with the launch of Google’s much-publicized Stadia streaming game service tomorrow, with the company fleshing out the launch line-up with an extra 10 games — although none of them are particularly new, and none are exclusive. It’s an interesting week to launch something that could be the future of gaming: This is the same week Nintendo launches the Wii, SNES and the DS. And the same week Microsoft’s Xbox One and Xbox 360, the Sega Saturn and, er, the Atari Jaguar all launch, too. Will Google’s Stadia join such illustrious company?

The White House has confirmed that President Trump will visit Apple’s Mac Pro factory in Austin, Texas, on November 20th, backing up rumors of an impending tour.
