I thought Google Glass would be a big hit and everyone would be wearing some form of holographic lens by 2020.
Technology looks to be stalled in this area.

Here, we have 1000GB/month plan, for as less as $1... moreUnfortunately, I'm. Also I had no idea about those plans, I stand corrected.
Well apart from early testers this bouht maybe 20 people whi had nothing to do in their bored life so they trying this new thing just to sparkle among the friends and failed to impress like G-Glass its self

(I hope it's Stadia)I hope too.
Paying 10 bucks a month and having no game sin its dissaster.
Users of WOW payed 10 a month but it was gruesome game and still is and have support.

Just because you didn't experience any problem doesn't mean the problems aren't real. Oh and I love how you blame the failure of Stadia's launch on every single gamer in existence instead of Google.

But, this is still early development. 2020 will be a great year for Stadia.

Many users, as many tech/game blogs reports, hate to see revolutionary positive change, (NVIDIA/PC/console fanboys) and hoping for Cloud-based failure just to keep their thousands-of-dollars rigs as childish bragging rights.

But remem... morequite a big difference, yes, traditional consoles generally sell at a loss as they are guaranteed revenue from the games and in some cases accessories over long period of time, but with google glass and google stadia, i am not sure that they will generate much profit from their games as it's subscription based, it's possible that they won't sell more than 1 million within first 12 months and struggle to break even, more importantly, where is the unique killer app game that's exclusive to stadia, the original playstation had ridge racer, playstation 4 has killzone shadow falll, n64 had mario 64, switch has zelda- breathe of wind, these games were released first few weeks or at launch for their respective consoles and encouraged people to change to next generation

This is true. But remember, the consoles sold at a lost e.g. PS3/PS4 - X-360/XB1(and so will the next-gen) too.
Google just needs to work on platform titles.
Content is king, here.

This Sacrifice has been prepared to mark the asupicious ascension of the God-King Pichai to the throne of the All Seeing G.
The End of this insinificant trinket means little, if the Ruler of G is pleased and constantly fed spicy vegan samosas.
NotAnOpinion, 08 Dec 2019That's not completely true. The same nay-sayers had complained about 4K video streaming too, (... moreproblem is, it won't get widespread enough to guarantee a profit. pcgamer said that even google's own test system had some kind of input lag. so even at its best form it's not flawless and it can't be. syncing player's data in a multiplayer game is a challenge itself .a guy with ping 9 is playing against someone with ping 140 along with other players with varies internet connection speeds and qualities. now add streaming to the mix and you'll get the "future" in choppy framerate and input lag.
in video streaming I can wait a sec to load the rest of the movie but in a game, that means failure and nobody likes failure. in an RPG game that might not be a big problem (if u save constantly) but in an online match, it's an absolute no go.

Here, we have 1000GB/month plan, for as less as $15~20, at 1Gbps.
Cloud gaming has a lot of potential here.
atleast apple doesnt experiment with their customers. what a joke
They should stick to google search (uncensor and remove their propaganda from it) and google maps and stop wasting money.

The same nay-sayers had complained about 4K video streaming too, (Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, etc 25Mbps minimum) but more people has subscribed to those services more than ever. G-Stadia minimum requirements for 720p is around 15-20 Mbps and 30-40Mbps (36+ for smooth performance) for 4K.
G-Stadia (just like 4K Netflix, etc.) is not for everybody (if anyone has less than a solid 20 Mbps connection, they should avoid streaming content altogether) and it is not trying to cater to everyone but it does has tremendous potential for Cloud-gaming and it is the future (GeForce NOW, MS xCloud, Apple's Arcade, etc.,) and it does not matter if you are ready for it or not.
The future is now.

Plus, it's subscription based, not even free. You will have to be a Google fanboy to even thinking about trying this.
This is google. Shuts down every project within a few years. Hope Google stadia has same fate

(I hope it's Stadia)Stadia can't work the infrastructure inherent to make it work is so expesnive that it is simply not worth it.
Google is at the phase that it has to use some (a lot of) its cash in vanity projects or else she loses it for tax reasons. All companies have those, Microsoft has those , Amazon does, Apple does.
Think about it. Google has created literally nothing new in this decade. She rests on things invented in the 00s or 90s , much like Microsoft (at this point) you can trust that everything she tries will not work. Stadia included, then again its point was not to (necessarily) work merely avoiding paying that same amount ot taxes, so they instead prefer the black hole that cloud gaming is...
