Happy Cloud Joins the Cloud Crowd

Happy Cloud is a Cambridge, MA-based cloud gaming startup, as they are partnering with AMD to bring videogames to internet-connected televisions. There are details on BostonHerald.com where Happy Cloud claims they are pioneering this area in spite of already established players OnLive and Gaikai, as the article states: "The service will provide high-resolution, console-quality games ó a first for the industry, according to Happy Cloud ó without the need for a console or physical game disc." Word is: "Happy Cloud, whose new TV service will run on Windows, says it has undisclosed partnerships in place to make more than 2,000 video games accessible through the new TV technology. Itís teamed with Akamai Technologies, a Cambridge-based Internet data-delivery company that will give it access to 100,000 server locations throughout the world to ensure high-speed delivery."

LOL...this is like seeing a news report that someone got tired of dragging their box of tools around and "pioneered" legs on it that had round disks which allowed the box to roll. My guess is that a whole lot of sales and marketing people are unemployed and still trying to sell us a pig in a poke when the cat is already out of the bag.
