In-Home Steam Streaming

It looks like in-home streaming is coming to Steam and will be called "Steaming".  This will allow you to stream games from one PC to another and shows the direction that Valve is going and once this is smoothed up, will be a key feature of SteamOS and will help you get all of the Windows Only games on your Linux-based Steambox.  Right now, it's burried in the latest update, but doesn't seem to work anyhow.  It's coming soon, so stay tuned.

An update to the beta version of the Steam client adds an early look at the computer-to-computer streaming that will be an integral part of Valve's SteamOS and Steam Machines. The option for in-home streaming, which requires some "tinkering" to access, according to the unofficial Steam Database, doesn't appear to function yet for users, but offers some insight into Valve's plans.

Monoprice at CES 2015 - More than just cables

CES 2015 continues to roll on and today we had the chance to stop by and see the folks at Monoprice and some of their new products they've introduced for the upcoming year. Monoprice was at one time best know for their cables and accessories, but they've continued to add new products, lots and lots of new products. Monoprice was proudly showing off their new 28" 60Hz 4K monitor. There have been a good number of 4k monitors hitting the market in recent months, however, Monoprice is offering theirs for $499 USD which is going to be tough to beat.

In addition to Monoprice's new 28" 4K monitor, they were also showing off their 30" 2560x1440 which retails for about the same money. This panel has higher quality color reproduction which justifies the higher price-per-pixel.

How Google Finally Got Design

According to one guys opinion, Google finally figured out software design and the guy was as surprised as I am. I get it though, Google has come a long way, but are they leading the curve? I'm not so sure as the interface on the new Windows Mobile platform is pretty solid - as in Windows 10. Still, their eye on anesthetics is great and this makes software better for all of us. Check out all the details and reasons why Android M is so much better than anything you've EVER seen before.

It would have been crazy to say just a few years ago. But today, Google produces better-designed software than any other tech behemoth. If you don’t believe that, then set down your Apple-flavored Kool-Aid. Take a cleansing breath, open your mind, and compare Android and iOS.

Apple Finally Streams Music - Calls it 'Revolutionary'

Probably the thing that stood out today from Apple's WWDC is their new streaming music service. While this has been done countless times before, Apple is bringing something new. Actually they aren't. They are bringing their music library to a stream, loading it up with DRM and selling it off at $9.99 for a single user or $14.99 for a family of six. This is obviously the better deal and just might be worth it if you have 4+ people in your house that all enjoy music.

An integral part of this is its new Music app, which includes a 'For You' section that can make new music recommendations based on your tastes and usage. Playlists are not based purely on software algorithms but also includes selections made by "people who love music".
