Google Stadia release line gets a boost of 10 games
After announcing that the cloud-streaming Stadia gaming service would be launched with just 12 titles, Google nearly doubled that number, just a day before launch. The service will now come with 10 additional games, bringing the total to 22.

Ford Mustang Mach-E traverses the world of electric vehicles, SUVs and muscle cars
Ford's new electric vehicle is the Mustang Mach-E – but it's not entirely a Mustang. It's more like a crossover with Mustang design tips. 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 hit showrooms by the end of 2020. The First Edition (270-mile range at $ 59,900), Premium (300-mile at $ 50,600) and GT (235 miles at $ 60,500) will be shown on the road first.
