nhl takes esports on ice with gaming tournament

As Patrik Laine climbed the ranks of youth hockey in Finland, he learned about the NHL from video games.“I learned probably just about the players,” the Winnipeg Jets star said. “Nowadays it’s super realistic, and you can just pretty much see how everybody is playing and how good they are.”It’s about to get even more real with the NHL following the lead of the NBA, NFL, FIFA and other leagues in establishing a presence in a burgeoning esports market. The 2018 NHL Gaming World Championship, launched last week, is a first step toward a potential version of the season-long NBA 2K League that’s set to begin in May or perhaps eMLS on FIFA 18. “You’re really both tapping into and expanding the existing fan base of the game,” said…

apple adds more ‘texture’ to its services with magazine deal

(Image: Syuji Honda) Apple has bought digital magazine distributor Texture to extend its subscription services beyond music and online storage.The deal announced Monday puts Apple in control of a service often described as a Netflix of magazines.

Texture hasn’t specified how many subscribers it has, but CEO John Loughlin said in a 2016 interview that the number ranged in the “hundreds of thousands.” Apple didn’t disclose how much it paid for Texture, which had raised at least $90 million since it was founded nearly a decade ago as…

Trump said at first he wasn’t serious when he floated the concept,…
