IBM has announced its debut into the esports arena through a multi-year deal inked with the Overwatch League. 

Esports is roughly described as competitive videogaming, team-based play, and digital tournaments. The industry goes far beyond a casual, friendly gaming session between friends, however, as professional teams have now formed to face other groups worldwide. 

Interest in the industry continues to grow, perhaps propelled further by the travel and social restrictions imposed by COVID-19. In August, for example, Singapore set up a new, official trade body dedicated to driving forward a “sustainable” esports ecosystem in the country.

Amazon has received delivery of its very first, custom-built EV delivery van – a vehicle built through its partnership with electric transportation startup Rivian. The van doesn’t look too different from existing, traditional fuel and hybrid commercial delivery vans (though there are a lot more rounded edges) but most of the innovation is happening in less obvious places.

In a blog post detailing the vehicle, Amazon outlined some of the unique features of its custom vehicle, including sensor-based highway driving and traffic assist features; exterior cameras that can provide a 360-degree view for the driver via a digital display; a larger interior floor space in the cabin to help with drivers getting to and from the cabin compartment; surround tail lights for better braking visibility for other drivers; integrated three-level shelving and a bulkhead cargo compartment separating door; and finally, of course – built-in Alexa voice assistant integration.

Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship, who went to a prayer march with Vice President Mike Pence and Franklin Graham before attending the Rose Garden ceremony, announced Monday he has also tested positive for
