StreamMyGame brings hardcore gaming to Eee PCs

Software update allows lag-free gameplay on latest UMPCs

StreamMyGame.com released a new version of its software yesterday that allows games to be played remotely on 'ultra-mobile PCs', including the popular Asus Eee PC ultraportable. The new update is targeted towards Eee PC and Ebox computers, along with more than 100 UMPC notebooks from other manufactures.

The new software allows games to run at full screen resolution on both the Windows and Linux versions of the Eee PC. Both versions (Linux and Windows) have been optimised to run on the complete range of Eee PC machines.

Richard Faria, CEO of StreamMyGame, said: "You can have your games installed on your home PC and play them on your Netbook around the home and remotely, providing a portable gaming experience on screens that have resolutions of 1024x600."

Utilising StreamMyGame's technology, high-end games like Crysis, Call of Duty 4 and BioShock can be played smoothly and lag-free on the Eee PC and other UMPCs. The gaming power is delivered from your main PC and networked to your Netbook. Using the new range of Eee PCs that employ 802.11n and WiMAX will further improve gameplay by substantially reducing network lag.

"There are over 100 Netbooks and UMPCs that are now compatible with our technology and we will guarantee similar compatibility with the MID market", Richard Faria said.

Notebook models compatible with the latest version of StreamMyGame include the Asus Eee PC 900 (Linux version), Eee PC 900 (Windows XP version), and Eee PC 701 4G, the Hewlett-Packard 2133 Mini-Note PC (FH441PA), the Fujitsu Lifebook U1010 3.5G, LifeBook P1610 and LifeBook P8010, the HTC Shift X9500 and the Acer Aspire One.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
