“X” that came in our life last decade

Here we reach letter X and soon A2Z will finish.

So let’s peep into X to check what and how this letter changed in the last decade.



Xbox Adaptive Controller (2018)

Microsoft’s Xbox Adaptive Controller, made for gamers with limited mobility and highly modifiable for different users’ needs, is perhaps my favorite gadget of the decade, and one I pray is duplicated by other major game companies. Not only does it look slick, but it’s also designed to accommodate a subset of gamers long ignored by the larger gaming industry. Microsoft worked alongside organizations like the Cerebral Palsy Foundation and the AbleGamers Charity to shape everything from the huge buttons on its face to its accessible packaging. With over a dozen ports for connecting assistive controllers, buttons, and joysticks, and its compatibility with both Xbox One consoles and Windows PCs, Xbox’s Adaptive Controller is one of the most important developments in the gaming industry and should put a smile on anyone’s face.

X for, well not X for sure.

For a change, X here does not stand for X as in EX. Too many people repeatedly mispronounce Apple’s new iPhones. So in public service and one last time, it’s iPhone TEN, TEN R, TEN S, and TEN S Max. Not ‘EX, EX-R, EX-S and EX-S Max’

Hate to be that guy, but the “X” in iPhone X has spoken aloud in the following way: “Ten.” … Apple pronounced it “iPhone 10” exclusively onstage at the launch event and in its promotional film. Also, Apple has been using the roman numeral X as a sneaky, edgy 10 for well over a decade.

The newest Apple phones this year is known as the iPhone XS and the iPhone XR. Apple insists that the “X” stands for the Roman numeral for 10. And the “S” stands for “speed,” at least in Apple lore. … According to Apple’s marketing chief, it has to do with sports cars.

So next time you see apple don’t call it X it’s not your EX dear its 10.


That’s all for today
