Microsoft C.E.O. Says Tech’s Progress on Gender Equality Is ‘Not Sufficient’

Mr. Nadella, who joined Microsoft in 1992, touched on a range of topics during the talk in Manhattan, discussing privacy, gaming, immigration and the effect of artificial intelligence on jobs.Mr. Nadella said that immigrants — and not just those with highly valued skills — help improve competition. He said he himself had benefited from “enlightened” immigration policy that allowed him to study and work in the United States.“That’s what makes America exceptional, both being the place where the talent comes and also being the beacon of hope for the people who need hope,” said Mr. Nadella, who early in his employment at Microsoft had given up his green card for a temporary H-1B work visa that allowed him to bring his wife, Anu, to the United States from India.Like many tech companies, Microsoft has voiced opposition to President Trump’s decision to begin rolling back the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy. Microsoft said it would cover the legal costs for any worker threatened with deportation.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Here’s Everything Microsoft Just Announced at the Xbox E3 Show

Bathed in electric green lights, enthralled by the staccato thump of shock-and-awe music, attendees at The Galen Center listened Sunday to Microsoft executives pitch the next phase in the Xbox’s journey—from what in 2013 began as a controversial motion-controlled, next-gen media hub, to today’s rededication as a gaming-foremost, super-powered 4K graphical monster. The Most Powerful Game Console Ever Meet Xbox One X, the official name for Microsoft’s souped up Xbox One, formerly codenamed “Project Scorpio.” It boasts 6 teraflops of GPU compute power, 12 gigabytes of DDR5 memory, and games capable of running at native 4K resolutions, which is all just to say that it’s going to be a pixel-crunching beast. “There is no power greater than X,” said Xbox honcho Phil Spencer. “It’s the most powerful console ever made.” And yes, also rather pricey: $499, or $100 more than Sony’s own 4K-angled box, the PlayStation 4 Pro, which debuted last November. But if the battle in the 4K graphics space is currently about chasing enthusiast wallets, Microsoft is positioning Xbox One X as a box that justifies the extra outlay with raw specs capable of delivering much more than Sony’s product to videophiles and 4K connoisseurs. If the narrative around the Xbox One and PlayStation 4’s debut in 2013 centered on the PlayStation 4’s superior specs, today’s show was Microsoft taking the ball back. Xbox One X will also make existing Xbox One games look better and load faster, uses a liquid-cooled vapor chamber to tame its doubtless nutty thermals (a first for a console) and still somehow winds up being the smallest Xbox console the company’s made, including the Xbox One S. The Xbox One X will be available on November 7, worldwide. Forza Motorsport 7 Looks Sick How to show off all that power? With the world premiere of Forza Motorsport 7, a supercar extravaganza for Xbox One and Windows 10 that takes all the things we’ve come to expect from high-end racers—gorgeous cloudscapes, crisp terrain, dynamic weather like thunderheads rolling in and water beading on windshields—and kicks it up a whole lot more than a notch. Players can rip through 30 “famous” areas with dynamic race conditions and collect more than 700 cars, including the 2018 Porsche 911 GTS RS. The game runs at native 4K and 60 frames per second on Xbox One X, and ships for Xbox One and Windows 10 on October 3. (The Xbox One X version will be available when that console ships on November 7.) Assassin’s Creed Origins Premiere Though not console-exclusive, Ubisoft’s long-awaited return to the Assassin’s Creed-verse looked pretty slick during the show’s world premiere gameplay demo. As rumored, the game will take place in ancient Egypt. It involves the story of a sort of Egyptian sheriff attempting to protect his community, a struggle out of which the company says will emerge the tale of the birth of the brotherhood of assassins. Climb pyramids, fight in coliseums, gallop through dusty palm-treed lands, command birds to surveil and track enemies, fire weapons in slow-motion while mid-leap and engage an enormous open world that’s been fine-tuned to resemble more a roleplaying than traditional action-adventure game. It’s available October 27. Minecraft Platform Interoperability The promise of a master version of studio Mojang’s sandbox builder, identical across all platforms, not just functionally but at the codebase level, is finally happening. With what Microsoft calls the “Better Together Update,” the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions of Minecraft will converge with the Windows 10, Virtual Reality and mobile versions. All will hence run the C++ version, or what creator Mojang and Microsoft have taken to calling the “bedrock engine.” What’s more, Microsoft teased something it’s calling the “Super Duper Graphics Pack,” a graphical update coming this fall that will include overhauled textures and lighting (including support for high dynamic range) for what amounts to an official vamp on the kinds of user mods that have made such things possible in the Java PC version for years. Crackdown 3 Looks Nuts Today’s “best opener of the show” award goes to Terry Crews as Commander Jaxon. Brash and bombastic, the Crackdown 3 sizzle reel was too confusing to make much sense of. But this four-player campaign cooperative sandbox smack-around will be central to the Xbox One X’s launch lineup when it arrives on November 7. BioWare’s Gorgeous New Open-World Game BioWare’s new “shared world” action roleplaying game, Anthem, has players (dubbed “freelancers”) exploring a massive open world while donning exosuits dubbed “Javelins,” differentiated by their abilities. In the demo, a player flew Superman-style through a lush jungle, encountering dynamic enemies, diving underwater and boosting around, then reemerging to tango with further indigenous hostiles. The game, which appears to blend elements of Destiny and Titanfall, supports up to four people playing together in squadrons. Look for it fall 2018. 42 games, 22 of those Xbox One exclusives The press conference included a barrage of world premieres, including a mix of both platform and launch (meaning temporarily) exclusives. We learned of Metro: Exodus‘s existence, another post-apocalyptic open-world shooter from series developer 4A Games that’s coming in 2018, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm, a three-part adventure that takes place before the BAFTA-winning original. Online tactical survival romp PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, released in March for PCs, is coming to Xbox One. Deep Rock Galactic, a co-op first-person shooter with procedurally generated levels starring “badass space dwarves,” looked like Overwatch meets Minecraft (launch exclusive). There was State of Decay 2, another zombie invasion survival game (exclusive to Xbox One and Windows 10), and The Darwin Project, an arena-style survivalism game (launch exclusive). The Last Night‘s lovely animated 2D cyberpunk vistas was evocative of Flashback (launch exclusive). Rare offered another look at Sea of Thieves, its shared-world pirate plunderer (Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive). There’s a new “Ori” game in the works, dubbed Ori and the Will of the Wisps, that’s exclusive to Windows 10 and Xbox One. And Cuphead, Studio MDHR’s long-awaited retro-cartoon-side-scroller that’s exclusive to Xbox One and Windows, is finally going to be playable September 29. I’m missing a bunch of others here, like Super Lucky’s Tale, The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti, CodeVein and Ashen, but then it was a show designed in part to impress by deluging. Original Xbox Games Are Coming, Too Microsoft’s claims about the popularity of backward compatibility are a bit vague, but it’s hard to imagine the company wasting time and money getting nearly 400 Xbox 360 games to work with the Xbox One without a solid business case. And it’s even harder to imagine today’s revelation–that original Xbox games are in the offing (they’ll look and play better, said Microsoft)–if the economics, to say nothing of the goodwill this sort of move engenders among fans, weren’t solid enough. Microsoft’s View of the Immediate Future All this said, the presser’s montage of verdant other-worlds and collapsed civilizations felt a bit skewed toward brutality and bleakness. Microsoft’s view of gaming circa 2017 clearly privileges platform exclusivity and visual muscularity, but also games whose central tenets involve smacking things around and general dollops of thematic sound and furiousness. For Xbox, gaming’s future looks like much of its past, wherein players thrash, shoot and brutally skewer stuff. Some of this is doubtless the marketing need to cast Xbox One X in its most rambunctious light, but there was a sense of conceptual blur about the roundup that I worry fuels the (deeply mistaken) narrative that games are just boisterous toys for power fantasists.

President Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Make Historic Visit to Pearl Harbor

President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have laid wreaths aboard the USS Arizona Memorial to honor Americans who died in the Pearl Harbor attacks. Obama and Abe entered a covered area of the memorial where a marbled wall lists names of U.S. troops who died in the waters below. They stood at the entrance for a moment of silence. Then the leaders approached and adjusted a pair of green-and-peach-colored wreaths made of lilies. Obama’s wreath bore a white ribbon saying “In Remembrance, Barack Obama, President of the United States, and Abe’s a ribbon that says “In Remembrance, Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan.” Both leaders bowed their heads slightly but said nothing before slowly exiting. It’s the first visit by a Japanese prime minister to the memorial. […]

The Trump Campaign Will Try to Block the Green Party’s Recount Effort in Michigan

(LANSING, Mich.) — Michigan’s elections board on Friday will consider President-elect Donald Trump’s request to block a hand recount of all 4.8 million ballots cast in the state he won by about 10,700 votes over Hillary Clinton. Lawyers for the Trump campaign argued Thursday that Green Party nominee Jill Stein, a “bottom-dwelling candidate,” cannot seek the expensive, time-consuming recount because she was not “aggrieved” to the point where potential miscounting of votes could have cost her the election. She garnered just 1 percent in Michigan. They also said in their objection that Stein waited until the last minute to file her recount petition Wednesday, making it impossible to finish by a Dec. 13 deadline. Stein countered that Trump’s “cynical efforts to delay the recount and create unnecessary costs for taxpayers are shameful and outrageous.” His objections suspended the planned Friday start of the recount until next week. A recount is already underway in Wisconsin, which Trump won by roughly 22,000 votes and where the first reporting of numbers was expected Friday. In Pennsylvania, a hearing was scheduled for Monday on Stein’s push to secure a court-ordered statewide recount, a legal maneuver that has never been tried, according to one of the attorneys who filed it. Recounts were not expected to flip nearly enough votes to change the outcome in any of the states. The Wisconsin recount doesn’t carry nearly the same drama as the Florida recount in 2000, when the outcome of the presidential race between Al Gore and George W. Bush hung in the balance. “This is certainly not Bush v. Gore,” said Mike Haas, Wisconsin’s chief elections administrator. Even so, the campaigns for Trump, Clinton and Stein all had observers spread throughout the state to watch the process. The recount will have to move quickly. The federal deadline to certify the vote to avoid having the fate of Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes decided by Congress is Dec. 13. Even if that were to happen, the votes would almost certainly go to Trump, since Republicans control both chambers of Congress. Stein has argued, without evidence, that irregularities in the votes in all three states suggest that there could have been tampering with the vote, perhaps through a well-coordinated, highly complex cyberattack. “Verifying the vote through this recount is the only way to confirm that every vote has been counted securely and accurately and is not compromised by machine or human error, or by tampering or hacking,” Stein said. Stein’s critics, including the Wisconsin Republican Party, contend that she is a little-known candidate who is merely trying to raise her profile while raising millions of dollars. The Wisconsin recount was estimated to cost about $3.9 million. Stein paid $973,250 for the requested recount in Michigan. Michigan’s Republican secretary of state, Ruth Johnson, has said a recount could cost $5 million total. ___ Associated Press writer Marc Levy in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, contributed to this report.
