Steam OS

SteamBigPictureI really think that Valve has figured out the future of gaming. They recently released “Big Picture Mode” on Steam and it’s basically a gaming P.C. mimicking a console in your living room. . For mainstream users, it’s just not practical or visually pleasing to connect a bulky PC in your big screen TV. The cool thing about big picture mode is that it allows individual to customize their machine and have control over their gaming hardware. It leverages open source software and the internet allowing users to communicate with friends, backup games and even download classic ROM’s from older systems. You can buy a cheap steam box the same size as your Playstation 4 (PS4) or Xbox. It can be relatively cheap if you want to try it out, but the cool thing about the steam box is that it allow users to later upgrade SSD or graphics card. It run’s natively on Steam OS, (a Linux based operating system), but it can also be installed in Windows or OS X. I personally like using a PS Dualshock 4 controller on emulator when runningĀ  classic games in PS, S.NES or Nintendo 64 on emulators.

iPhone 6

I recently upgraded from an iPhone 4 to the new iPhone 6. Wow, it’s definitely a worthy upgrade!! I was debating which version to get, but I run and workout with my phone. The iPhone6 Plus is great, but portability is something that I need in a phone. I still think that the regular iPhone6 is a better phone and I don’t need a phablet. Overall, I have a Macbook Pro and it’s cool to have all the music, photo, mac integration with the iPhone iOS. I wish it was a tid bit wider, but overall I’m satisfied with the phone’s brightness and screen size.
