Last Thursday I had a look at the Steam Controller and gave my first impressions having used that for a couple of weeks. Next up is the turn of the Steam Link. Is this going to take PC gaming away from the desk and onto the couch?
I pre-ordered both the Steam Link and Steam Controller back in September and they finally arrived last week. I’ve been giving them some solid usage over the last few days and these are my first impressions. Not really a review, just some observations having used them for a bit. First up, the Steam Controller.
Some people are having trouble figuring out the best way to activate the backlight on the Pebble Time.

With Pebble Time it’s a piece of cake! Just go into the Pebble Time app and tap either Get Apps or Get Watchfaces.

Well, you’re in luck! Here are my five recommendations.

Pebble are the undisputed grandaddies of wearables, releasing the very first smartwatch back in 2013 and funded entirely through Kickstarter eventually getting funded by regular schmucks like you and me to the tune of $10.3m – the most money ever raised on the website at the time. By December 2014, they had sold over 1 million units worldwide.
Have you ever wanted to get started making your own videos but have been scared or put off by the prices or the amount of options out there? Well, I’ve just put together a small, inexpensive kit to get you started. Read on to find out what I recommend!
