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.

Buy Xbox One - Get Any Game Free

Microsoft is keeping the Xbox One train rolling after E3 with a new announcement that whne you buy a new Xbox One until June 27, you will get a free game of your choice with the console. The limits on this deal are up to a game worth $60 and must be a disc-based game. That covers most games in the USA where this offer was announced. Good for Microsoft to keep putting the pressure on Sony. Competition is always a great thing.

This special offer is valid with all Xbox One 500GB consoles, now $349 in the U.S., in addition to our recently announced Xbox One 1TB console, which includes the newly designed Xbox One Wireless Controller that comes with a 3.5mm stereo headset jack and Halo: The Master Chief Collection at no additional cost.

Xiaomi on the rise

Xiaomi is a relatively unknown name in North America, however, elsewhere they are really starting to make a name for themselves, especially after moving 34.7 Million phones in the first 6 months of 2015! These sales figures show a 33% growth this year and makes them now the 3rd largest exporter of phones. Xiaomi is expanding into new markets and with this momentum have become a big player in the market very quickly. TechCrunch has more details over here.

Xiaomi, which is valued at $45 billion and is the world’s third largest exporter of phones, this week expanded into Brazil and is thought to have a slate of other international expansions lined up for this year. That’s important because CEO and co-founder Lei Jun previously estimated that the company would sell 100 million smartphones this year. While 34.7 million in the first half of 2015 is impressive — Xiaomi said it represents a 33 percent increase on the first half of 2014 — the company is going to need to kick up its sales if it is to hit Lei Jun’s lofty target for 2015.
