Disney+ in Australia

This week we’ll see the local Australian launch of Disney+, the latest in a very long line of streaming subscription services. While there’s still clearly a place in Australian homes for free to air television (at least for live events such as sports), it’s also clear that on-demand streaming services delivered over a home broadband… More 


Best Practices for Computer Security within Small Businesses

Computer security has never been a hotter issue than it is today. Data breaches, cryptolockers, malware, phishing – as more and more of our lives and businesses go digital, the more we expose ourselves to sneaky hackers looking to take advantage of us. As a small business owner it’s easy to let computer security slip… More 


What’s your bushfire tech survival plan?

We’re in the middle of a particularly fierce bushfire season here in Australia, and sadly that’s included not only loss of property but also loss of life. Bushfires are part of the Australian ecosystem, it’s true, and if you live in an area that’s likely to be affected by them, it’s wise to have a… More 


Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 Review: Third time’s the charm

Microsoft used to be a software-only company, leaving the practical work of actually building PCs to partner companies such as Dell, HP, Lenovo and others. In recent years it’s branched out with its Surface range of tablet 2-in-1s and more recently, Surface-branded laptops. Microsoft recently sent me the Surface Laptop 3 to assess. As the… More 


Apple iPad 7th Generation review: Good basic value for most tablet buyers

Apple recently refreshed its basic iPad line of tablet computers. I’ve got to be very careful in describing them, however, because while you might think of an iPad as a tablet, it’s actually a range of tablets. At the top end of the price and performance scale is the Apple iPad Pro, then moving down… More 


Which keys are vital on your keyboard?

While there’s been an explosion in touch-led interfaces in recent years as we’ve all adapted to using devices such as smartphones and tablets, the humble keyboard is still king for data entry and general interaction with our PCs.

macOS Catalina: New features and problems mean it’s worth waiting

Apple released the latest full version of macOS for its range of desktop and laptop computers recently. It’s a free upgrade to macOS Catalina as long as you’ve got a qualifying iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro model, with the promise of plenty of new features. Most of macOS’ core applications have… More 


Microsoft’s new Surface range could show the future of Windows

When Microsoft announced its very first range of Surface laptop computers, it very prominently stated that it wasn’t going into direct competition with hardware partners such as Dell, HP, Lenovo or Acer. Indeed, at the time, such a move would have been very foolhardy for Microsoft, because a huge proportion of its revenue came from… More 


Apple updates iOS, but it’s not just all bugfixes

If you’re a user of one of Apple’s very popular iPhone or iPad tablet devices, you’ve probably already been pestered by now to upgrade to the latest version of the underlying operating system Apple uses for its mobile devices.
