Steam Box Specs Revealed

The prototype units will ship with an Intel Core i7-4770, an Intel Core i5-4570, or an unidentified Core i3 CPU. As far as GPUs go, there will be a mix of Nvidia Titan, Nvidia GTX780, Nvidia GTX760, and Nvidia GTX660 models — all with 3GB of GDDR5. All units will ship with 16GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, hybrid 1TB/8GB SSHDs, and a 450w power supply. Impressively, all of this equipment is designed to fit inside a 12-inch x 12.4-inch x 2.9-inch case. Really sleek stuff.

So far, this spec sheet seems to make the Steam Box a great gaming computer, but the question keeps floating, how well will Steam OS be made? In Valve's history, they've attempted to create a point of switching to systems that run Ubuntu. Now, according to Valve, Windows games will be played by "streaming". The definition of that to the gaming communities is still unknown, and may involve emulation. Still, how these things will effect sales of the Steam box and its performance isn't yet known.

Hackintosh Boot Flags

If this is your first time building or making a Hackintosh, boot flags may seem like a foreign concept. Once you understand what each of them means, you can get started!
Clover Boot Flags:Verbose Mode:

 -v 
Safe Mode:

 -x 
Single User Mode:

 -s 
Zone Postponing: (use if hanging)

 -no-zp 
Single CPU core mode:

 cpus=1 
No Kext Cache Mode: (When changing kexts)

 -f 
Disables VT-x or VT-d:

 dart=0 
Verbose Mode:

 -v 
Enable NVIDIA Web Drivers: (do not use with nv_disable=1)

 nvda_drv=1 
Disable NVIDIA graphics cards: (do not use with nvda_drv=1)

 nv_disable=1 
Kext Dev Mode:

 kext-dev-mode=1 
Rootless Mode:  Do not boot with this on El Capitan or macOS Sierra

 rootless=0  If you're stuck at [PCI Configuration Began]:

 npci=0x2000   npci=0x3000 
Set Maximum Memory (RAM): (In megabytes)

 maxmem=4096   maxmem=8192 
Troubleshooting: If you are having any trouble, first try this string. It works on a lot of systems with Intel HD Graphics to get into the OS X Installer from a Unibeast USB.

 -v -x -s -no-zp

Android vs. iOS - Usability

Android vs. iOSiOS 9 vs Android Marshmallow
Round 2 will be released next week, 4/17/16. Round 1: Usability Although my judgement is skewed because I use an iPhone 6 on a daily basis, I have used Android extensivly and have written tutorials on how to run it on your PC or laptop. Android Marshmallow has come a long way since 2011, when I dismissed it as an operating system not even comparable to iOS, dude to the lack of app support and specs that were better on paper than in real world usage.
Android:
Android Marshmallow is a very good operating system. It is lacking a few things compared to iOS, but the same can be said the other way around. It is hard to compare usability because Android is an operating system, and there is not a definitive version. The apps that come packaged with most devices can be broken down and compared to iOS quite easily. Every one of them is tolerable, and some are better than any alternative in the Play Store.
Updates - Most Android devices get updates for 6 …
