In June 2015, Microsoft and Oculus were partnered to provide a better gaming experience for Xbox One, but now the competition between them is getting more intensive.For normal customers and users, it may be hard to understand those terminologies, but at the same time, the intensive competition among those companies will help us to get into this new era of virtual technology quickly.

PAK PM ACCEPTS MANMOHAN SINGH’S WORLD CUP INVITE

first_imgPakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has reportedly accepted his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh’s invitation to watch India-Pakistan World Cup semifinal in Mohali on March 30.A day after India beat Australia to enter the semifinal to face Pakistan, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had written identical letters to Gilani and Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari asking them to visit India to watch the match.The text of the letters to the Pakistani leaders read: “I propose to be at Mohali to watch the World Cup semi-final match between India and Pakistan to be held on 30th March.There is huge excitement over the match and we are all looking forward to a great game of cricket, that will be a victory for sport. It gives me great pleasure to invite you to visit Mohali and join me and the millions of fans from our countries to watch the match.”Singh’s decision to invite the President and Prime Minister of Pakistan to watch the match at Mohali with him has been looked as an attempt by him to push the India-Pakistan peace agenda.Cricket has had a chequered role in the diplomatic history of the two countries, and has been used to facilitate dialogue and bring about bonhomie. But ever since the Mumbai attack of November 2008, India-Pakistan relations have been in a trough, despite Singh’s valiant attempts to revive them. This cast a shadow even on cricket ties. The two sides have had just two cricketing encounters since 26/ 11, both in ICC-sanctioned events. And India has not welcomed any Pakistani player in the IPL tournament for two years.advertisement- With inputs from Mail Todaylast_img read more
