Money Goes Up in Steam

Good news Steam users with extra money! (Not good news if you're trying to save money)... The fall Steam sale is coming this week! The news is not actually coming from Valve, but from Paypal as they are ramping up for a lot more transactions. The sale is set to run until December 1st. Get out your wallet and game!

It looks like the Steam Fall sale is kicking off this Wednesday, November 26, which is either the best or worst news depending on how much money you have in your wallet. Valve hasn't made an official announcement, but an email from PayPal (via VG247) encouraged customers to stock up on Steam Wallet codes from the PayPal Digital Gift store, saying the Steam Fall Sale will run from November 26 to December 1.

Intel Inside Google's Glass

If you really want to get your foot in the door of wearables, you can either compete with some of the more established companies - or you can simply be the chip manufacturer that powers these devices. Intel has been pushing hard to be inside Google's Glass and it seems that they have just clinched the deal. The big question is: "Is Google Glass really going to be popular enough to make Intel serious money?" Time will tell.

Through a program it calls Glass at Work, Google is working with software developers including Augmedix Inc. and APX Labs LLC to encourage use of Glass in industries such as health care, construction and manufacturing where employees work with their hands but need information.

Work & Play for Less

Microsoft is really starting to get the idea that in order to compete in the world of software and services, you can't charge a fortune when there are so many other decent options. They've bundled their "Work & Play" bundle for a while now at $199 and now the price has slipped to a mere $149. For that price you get Office 365 Home, Skype Unlimited, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Music. If you grabbed these separately, that would set you back over $400 - now yours for $149. Nicely done.

Prior to this offer, the Work & Play Bundle was available for $199 but Microsoft has slashed the price further today; consumers can head to the closest Microsoft Store to grab the bundle. The offer which started on 11th November is valid up to the 4th of January 2015 or while supplies last; each customer can purchase a maximum of three bundles.

Acer Chromebook Impressions and Google vs. Microsoft

We have just posted up an article discussing the real reason why Google and Microsoft are fighting for the entry-level space. They want your data. In return, they are pretty much giving you a free laptop and it's up to you which one you will pick. Google kicked things off with their Chromebook, then lost ground with the initial release of the Chromebook 2. Microsoft stepped up and dropped their price and now Google is back in a big way. We talk about that as well as the Acer 13-inch 1080p Chromebook that will set you back a mere $249. Check out all the details in our latest article.

The performance of the Acer CB5-311-T9B0 13-inch 1080p Chromebook is amazing for the price. While the screen quality certainly isn't IPS quality, it is more than adequate and much better than you'll find in many laptops in this price range. If you're into the Google ecosystem, check it out. You really can't go wrong as the total cost of ownership over two years is exactly the sticker price - not jacked up $60-$70 as with the Windows counterparts.
