Valve adds 100 Gbps connections to keep up with download demands

When you decide that your internet speeds just aren't enough to keep up with modern entertainment, you talk to your ISP and they change you over to a different package. Sure, it'll cost a bit more, but you'll be able to stream Netflix and download games at the same time, without having one or the other slowed down to a crawl.

Climbing Mount Everest with the HTC Vive Pre VR headset

Climbing Mount Everest with the HTC Vive Pre VR headset

Virtual reality is a strange place to visit, particularly when that virtual reality is a mountain you’ve never been to in person. At CES this week, NVIDIA showed off the HTC Vive Pre VR headset with a Mount Everest demonstration -- that is, a snowy digital landscape very carefully created to simulate the real thing, tents and all.

Making you feel as if you might plunge down an icefall abyss, though? They nailed that part.

The PC will be available for purchase separate from the headset, and it wont be alone by the time the headset is released, of that you can be reasonably sure.

Steam meltdown as Valve’s store spills other gamers’ details [Updated]

Looks like Valve's Christmas present is a massive data screw-up, with popular gaming service Steam gushing users' personal details and more.

77,000 Steam accounts stolen every month, according to Valve

Have you ever had an online account hacked? Thankfully I can say that I haven't, at any point. Sure, I've gotten notices from sites I use telling me that they've had some sort of breach, and to change my password. However, I've never had anyone access any of my accounts. Outside of my bank account, the one that I probably worry the most about is my Steam account, and apparently for good reason.

HTC has announced the release date of their Valve collaborative project, the HTC Vive virtual reality headset. This headset uses a couple of hand controllers and a room-wide playing area to differentiate itself from the competition, and exists as a team effort between HTC (for manufacturing) and Valve (for software).
