Last week, Tom Cruise took to Twitter for a very important PSA. While many celebrities rely on social media to voice their opinions on political or social matters, Cruise was tackling a very different issue: video interpolation, more commonly known as motion smoothing. Alongside Mission: Impossible Fallout Director Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise took “a quick break from filming to tell you the best way to watch Mission: Impossible Fallout (or any movie you love) at home.”Cruise and McQuarrie aren’t the first people in Hollywood to speak out against motion smoothing. Back in October of 2017, a number of directors used Twitter to express their disdain for this technology. James Gunn tweeted that directors Rian Johnson (The Last Jedi), Edgar Wright (Baby Driver), Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes), Christopher McQuarrie, Tom Cruise, and himself were all “on board the anti-motion-smoothing campaign.” Following that tweet, Rian Johnson had this to say: “You want movies to look like liquid diarrhea, fine. But it should be a choice you make, not a hoop everyone has to jump through to unmake.”

Article | February 12, 2020

Microsoft is expanding its Project xCloud service to the iPhone today. The software giant is launching a beta of xCloud through Apple’s TestFlight service, allowing xCloud testers to try the service on an iPhone or iPad. It’s the first time we’ve seen a cloud game streaming service appear on iOS since the days of OnLive — and OnLive’s iOS app wound up in limbo when Apple didn’t approve it. Google’s Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now are still not available on Apple’s devices, either, and neither company has been able to tell us when that might change.
