South Korean mobile carrier LG Uplus Corp. has said it would launch Nvidia’s GeForce NOW Cloud gaming platform for Internet Protocol (IP) television services and upcoming 5G smartphones.

LG Uplus said it has signed an exclusive deal with Nvidia — a US-based graphics processing unit (GPU) manufacturer — to give access to a rich array of games to its mobile and Internet subscribers.


Since GeForce Now is an open platform, users can connect their accounts from online stores and bring their own games from a server, Yonhap news agency reported on Thursday.

Nvidia provides access to more than 500 games, including Fortnite and League of Legends, which are popular among local gamers.

As Cloud gaming requires a server and rendering graphics needs a low-latency Internet connection, LG Uplus said it will work with Nvidia to establish the system both on fixed-line connections and 5G smartphones.

The carrier said it will focus on Cloud gaming as part of its key 5G services, hoping to attract more customers when 5G smartphones come into market in the coming months.

“Low-latency 5G can maximise the performance of Cloud gaming,” Lee Sang-min, Head of the 5G service at LG Uplus, said.

“By combining LG Uplus’ 5G technology and Nvidia’s GPU Cloud computing, we will provide local users with a new way of gaming.”

Lenders began knocking on his door, losses mounted, and his bank account dwindled to nothing. He said, "Dhirubhai's money might have gotten me out of the problem quickly. However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

Every child responds differently to disturbing events:
What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
