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.

NVIDIA GTX 980 Ti Launches as Solid 4K Gamer

The "problem" with 4K displays is that many current cards simply cannot game at full resolution. There are a lot of pixels to push at 4K and unless you could invest in a GTX Titan, you had to SLI or Crossfire a couple of cards to really be able to push your display. NVIDIA has answered the call with their latest card that just dropped over the weekend. This new GTX 980 Ti has 2,816 CUDA cores and 176 texture units - about 38% more than the current GTX 980. In addition to the extra power, there is also 2GB of extra GDDR5 that helps push all those textures. The best part? This crazy powerful card is MSRP'd at $500.

NVIDIA claims its memory bandwidth is also 50 percent faster than its predecessor, which makes a big difference when throwing huge textures around. Of course, the Titan X is an even faster option than the 980 Ti, but its high price makes it far out of reach for most, even hardcore gamers.

Another Mac Security Flaw

There is another security flaw that affects most Mac computers at-risk while in their sleep state. This issue is especially dangerous as it affects the computer at the EFI Firmware level. If you have a brand-new Mac, you should be okay, but if you have one older than a year you could be affected. At this point their is no solution, but Apple has been alerted to this issue.

Everyday users shouldn't worry too much about this specific hack since it's a complicated process that would probably be more suitable for a high-risk/high-reward hack. However, computer security workers within companies that have valuable data that could cripple the company if manipulated or removed should be aware of the vulnerability.
