It’s called OnionShare, and it’s a tiny free software app that creates a direct connection between two users, allowing them to transfer files without having to trust a middleman site like DropBox or Mega.

The solution to this dilemma is quite simple, then: make your own Steam Machine using the same image the OEMs have at their disposal. Creating a Steam Machine yourself will also be a lot cheaper than some of the commercial offerings coming up. Until recently you would have got the best out of it with an Nvidia graphics card; however, AMD and Intel chipset support is now included.
