But again you are doing the same strawman thing you are accusing me of doing. I don’t see how by making a service that allows game streaming for those who have the benefit of it is ignoring those who don’t have shit internet. Google is a large company and has put a monumental amount of effort into expanding Google fiber, it’s not like they decided "hey we have game streaming for a select few people lets nix this whole other division of the company.
How are Microsoft and Google ignoring the fact that a lot of our infrastructure is shit by having a division of developers working on video game streaming? Isn’t that pretty much cancelled out by the fact that they have dedicated hardware divisions making it possible to play the next generation Xbox games?
I just don’t understand what you want them to do? The only company poised to make any difference in Rural America’s shit internet is SpaceX with their low orbit satellites. Google tried to make a difference and got royally blocked at every avenue they could get. This effort does literally nothing to stop any initiatives that benefit those with no internet, it just gives those people with good internet extra capabilities that are physically (by both the laws of physics and the political climate we have) impossible to achieve for those in rural areas.
edit I do care about the real shit internet. Hell I live in a very populated area but due to misc circumstances my last house could not get better than crappy 25/4 DSL, despite living 2 miles from where I live now with 100/15 for the same price. It’s ridiculous but this thread seems the wrong thread to grand stand about it though.
