Google Cloud plans to spend $3.3 billion more to expand its data center presence across Europe over the next two years, competing with Amazon and Microsoft.
Priced at $4.99 per month, the service is similar to Apple Inc's Apple Arcade, the iPhone maker's gaming subscription service for mobile devices and desktop computers. Google's Play Pass will be available on Android devices in the United States this week and will be rolled out to additional countries soon, the company said in a blog post.

DICK'S Sporting (DKS) is benefiting from its focus on merchandising strategy and omni-channel efforts. Also, the company is on track with store opening plans.
A significant scientific breakthrough that represents the dawn of computing’s second era? Researchers at Google say they have built the first quantum computer that can perform a calculation far beyond the reach of even the most powerful machine built along traditional, or “classical”, lines — a long-awaited feat known as “quantum supremacy”. The company’s researchers call it a “milestone” that “heralds the advent of a much-anticipated computing paradigm”.
Donatella Versace helped build the internet, and now she might just “break” it. to walk the runway in an updated version of the jungle print dress the star wore to the Grammys in 2000. The story behind the original Versace dress is that millions of people went online after the event to search for images of the singer wearing it, making it the most popular search query Google had seen at the time.
Europe's top court will rule on Sept. 24 whether Alphabet Inc unit Google must remove links to sensitive personal data worldwide or in Europe only in a case that pits privacy rights against the right of free speech. A second related dispute before the Luxembourg-based Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) is whether Google must automatically delete search results with sensitive information on a person's sex life or criminal convictions, among others. The cases test the region's right to extend its laws beyond its borders and a ruling against Google may even embolden authoritarian governments to demand the removal of any topic they want, legal observers said.
The investment plan includes an additional 600 million euros investment in the Hamina data centre in Finland, bringing total investment in the site to 2 billion euros, Finland's Prime Minister Antti Rinne told the joint news conference. "This is fantastic news for Finland," Rinne said. Google already has one data centre in Hamina, where it invested 800 million euros to convert an old paper mill. It said in May it would invest 600 million euros in a new data centre on the same site.
A paper by Google’s researchers seen by the FT, that was briefly posted earlier this week on a Nasa website before being removed, claimed that their processor was able to perform a calculation in three minutes and 20 seconds that would take today’s most advanced classical computer, known as Summit, approximately 10,000 years. The researchers said this meant the “quantum supremacy”, when quantum computers carry out calculations that had previously been impossible, had been achieved. “This dramatic speed-up relative to all known classical algorithms provides an experimental realisation of quantum supremacy on a computational task and heralds the advent of a much-anticipated computing paradigm,” the authors wrote.
Jeff Bezos, was facing the prospect of a large “climate strike” protest outside Amazon’s Seattle headquarters today and announced new climate targets on Thursday, saying it would aim for net-zero emissions by 2040, and be fuelled by 100 per cent renewable energy from 2030. that it can achieve zero emissions by 2030, one of the key demands of the climate strikers. across the US, Europe and Latin America, together comprising what it said was the “biggest corporate purchase of renewable energy in history”.
