Are you going to buy an Xbox One X This Holiday Season?

Hope to Receive it as a Gift

OnLive News: OnLive Desktop will let users cloud compute with Microsoft software on Apple's iPad. Also, Santa Claus is real and we're all getting ponies.

Streaming Windows applications and AAA PC games to the iPad? Is it just a fantasy? This Thursday we'll find out, when the OnLive Desktop app lands in the iTunes store. Don't let the thought of Powerpoint, Word, and Excel on your iPad put you to sleep. Think of the potential for bringing PC games to Apple's tablet, just like OnLive is already doing on Android devices.

With 2 GB of storage, OnLive's Desktop app is looking to combine the productivity of Microsoft's software with the ease and security of cloud computing. The app will feature an on-screen Windows keyboard, handwriting recognition, and the potential to stream PC games right to your tablet.

OnLive's future plans for the service include bringing this same service to PC, Mac, Android devices, and even televisions and monitors. While the OnLive Desktop app hitting the iTunes store on Thusday will be free, there are plans for a Pro version at $9.99 a month, which will included 50 GB of storage and additional PC features.

Gaming Target has not yet had its hands on the iPad's OnLive app. Like everyone else, we're looking forward to trying it when it comes to iTunes this Thursday, and are excited about the potential for cloud gaming on the iPad. Those interested should sign up with OnLive and reserve their user name now.
