Steam's in-home streaming, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303023==https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=3629-RIAV-1617" rel='nofollow'>according to its site</a>, "will allow [users] to play a game on one computer when the game process is actually running on another computer elsewhere in [one's] home." Game audio and video is captured on the remote computer, and subsequently sent to the player's computer.<br />

<strong>Dash driving feedback app and hardware released, offers trip logs, vehicle diagnostics, GPS mapping</strong><br />
<br />
Techstars New York-backed startup, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303024==https://dash.by/" rel='nofollow'>Dash</a>, has launched for use with Android devices -- including a combination of a hardware device and smartphone application.

Dash can track driving trips, document gas consumption, detect crashes and alert emergency services, understand vehicle warning messages and more. A central feature of Dash includes a focus around driving safety, with an 'in transit' mode that provides auditory alerts when a driving error occurs, such as braking too hard, and generates a driving score to share with friends. The Dash app can be downloaded for Android running devices from <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/303025==https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dashlabs.dash.android" rel='nofollow'>Google Play</a>, with an iOS version coming soon.
