Japan's top government spokesman says the country will make every diplomatic effort to defuse tensions stemming from Iran's decision to resume enriching uranium.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga spoke on Wednesday about Iran's move, which is intended to counter US economic sanctions. The country said on Tuesday that it will begin enriching uranium at a facility in Fordow, in defiance of the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.
In an official announcement on its PlayStation Blog, Sony has announced the shutdown of its PlayStation Vue service. According to Sony, “Today we are announcing that we will shut down the PlayStation Vue service on January 30, 2020. Unfortunately, the highly competitive Pay TV industry, with expensive content and network deals, has been slower to change than we expected. Because of this, we have decided to remain focused on our core gaming business.”
Sony has also pointed customers to its PlayStation Store and also individual third-party media apps if they still wanted to access TV shows on their PlayStation consoles. Sony did not make any mention of selling off its PlayStation Vue business, so for now, it would be safe to assume that after the 30th of January, 2020, the service would be gone for good.
While we wait for more educational institutions and governments to maybe put that into practice, in the meantime, it seems that Sony is laying the foundations of educational tools by announcing the KOOV Trial Kit, the company’s second coding, robotics, and design kit to its STEAM education offerings.
This follows the launch of the KOOV Educator Kit which was launched back in 2018, and has been designed to be an abbreviated take on the kit, where it would introduce core skills in coding, robotics, and design. This will help students develop the necessary basic skills as well as the thought processes behind it.
