Google Stadia's launch line gets a 10-player increase
After announcing that its cloud-streaming Stadia gaming service would launch with just 12 titles, Google has almost doubled that number, just one day before launch. The service will now arrive with another 10 games, which means the sum will be 22. It will include Soccer Manager 2020 and NBA 2K2020, which gave Stadia a couple of the sports titles that it was missing completely earlier. By comparison, Microsoft is launching its xCloud preview with over 50 titles.

Ford's Mustang Mach-E spans the world of EVs, SUVs and muscle cars
Ford's new electric vehicle is the Mustang Mach-E – but it's not quite a Mustang. It's more like a crossover with elements of Mustang design. Ford seems to have a version of Mach-E for all types of drivers. It will be available in five trim models starting at $ 43,895 and will roll into showrooms by the end of 2020. The first edition (270 mile range at $ 59,900), Premium (300 miles at $ 50,600) and GT (235 miles at $ 60,500) show up on the road first. Both the California Route (300 miles to $ 52,400) and Select (230 miles at $ 43,895) will land in early 2021.

It is not clear if Tim Cook or other Apple executives will be present, but it would not be surprising given the optics. Apple wants to be seen as the Trump administration's support, while Trump wants to be seen as supporting US jobs.
For Apple, however, there is an extra speed. The next big US Customs Round for China will come into force on December 15, and it could easily raise the cost of selling phones, laptops, monitors and other pillars in Apple's product lineup.
Iran shuts down almost all Internet access in response to fuel protests
The Iranian government has shut down almost all Internet access in the country amid mounting protests that began over a 50 percent increase in fuel prices and now encompass a broader disagreement. There are pockets of access that have allowed people to see what is happening on the ground, but they are rare. Telephone calls abroad still work, but these are also closely monitored. The government has not formally acknowledged the Internet shutdown.
