I don’t know if anyone really expected Google Stadia to work on an airplane — but someone had to try. And last week, that someone was me. If the experiment worked, a 2-hour flight would pass by almost instantaneously while I played Shadow of the Tomb Raider in perfect fidelity on a smartphone. If it didn’t, I’d be stuck fiddling with impenetrable settings menus until I finally took apart the whole setup and resigned myself to reading a book.

In the end, I made some very respectable progress in “Beren and Lúthien” by J.R.R. Tolkien (HarperCollins, 2017).
