Valve making some AWESOME moves


Steam Dev Days just wrapped up and we learned several awesome things! Here’s a quick breakdown, or you can visit the official page and see what you can find there.

  • Samsung and Valve have teamed up to allow gamers to stream their gaming session from their gaming rig to their TV. If you’re still here with dry pants, maybe you should read about it over at
  • All of you PS4 owners that are frustrated that you have to buy an Xbox controller to game on your PC, you will soon be able to use your PS4 controller. Also, your Steam Controller is going to have better support, but it’s clear the lead story of this is the PS4 thing…
  • Check out the new VR Controllers that will soon be in your hands. Literally. Your hands.
  • There are more than 10,000 games on Steam. So… that happened.

Why are you still using Yahoo!?


The Intercept had a fantastic article about Yahoo! that should send chills down the spines of people who still have and use the free email service while simultaneously angering people regardless of their affiliation with the site. I suggest you go and read that article because it lays it out more neatly than I could.

tldr: NSA asked Yahoo! to let them spy on you and Yahoo! bent over backwards to comply, without putting up a fight at all

What I’d like to do is to help you get away from Yahoo! and start using a better service. I’ll be doing this over the next week-or-so as I actually help a friend to leave the service. What I’d like you to do is to ask yourself the simple question that is the headline of this article. Why are you still using your Yahoo! account? If the answer is because you’re loyal to them, you might want to rethink that after while reading the linked article above. If you’re simply there because you never thought about leaving, now is a perfect time to rethink your options.
