Undentia , an audio specialist from Sweden, has launched what it calls a music server for audiophiles. The Cirrus-7SE Music Server is based on a regular 10th Generation Intel NUC motherboard which runs silently thanks to a specially designed passively cooled chassis made by Cirrus7.

The video game industry is drastically different from what it was 10 years ago. Discs have long since replaced cartridges on two of the three major systems. These consoles can be played without physical media, too, each with a digital library mirroring physical — even old games that are hard to find on disc.

Depending on the service, these games still have the same price as digital and physical and see similar discounts from time to time. But what is cloud gaming exactly, and is it the best option for you? We examined cloud gaming’s origins, how it works, and where it’s headed in the future to help you make that decision.
