Netflix offline won’t solve your travel watching woes

Australians generally have taken to online streaming services with extreme gusto, despite the generally woeful state of our broadband services in world terms. The Australian Communications and Media Authority recently released its 2015-2016 Communications Report, detailing the communications activities of Australians across all kinds of services. For broadband, and specifically online video content, it’s a… More

Google’s Chromecast might outgun the streaming features on your Smart TV

While the latest Smart TVs come with all the streaming bells and whistles, sometimes you’ll get better results from Google’s budget streaming media player. Last year I bought a new television for the bedroom, just a basic 32-inch Sony Bravia W700B to sit in the corner so we can occasionally watch television in bed. Not… More

Throw away those paper receipts with expense management apps

Rather than sift through the stash of receipts in your desk drawer at the end of the month, expense management apps let you file that paperwork automatically. The dream of a completely paperless office lies beyond the reach of many businesses, but we can still aspire to the less-paper office. If you’re looking to banish… More

Is the era of the standalone digital camera over?

Recently, I took a brief but well-earned holiday to Tokyo, Japan. As a tourist, I wanted to capture some photographic memories, but there you’ve got something of a choice when it comes to how you capture those images. For most of us, the most obvious camera to use would be the one on your smartphone…. More

Amazon’s Prime defrosts for Australia (sort of)

It’s long been rumoured that online retailing giant Amazon would launch its platform of services down under. To date, that’s been a very small scale affair, with its site at www.amazon.com.au primarily selling its Kindle eBook readers, either by prompting you to head to whichever its current Australian retail partner had been (firstly Dick Smith,… More

Is your business ready for Australia’s 2G mobile shutdown?

If your business relies on Telstra, Optus or Vodafone’s ageing 2G mobile networks – perhaps not just for phone calls – then it’s time to make other plans. It’s more than 20 years since Australia launched its 2G GSM (Global System for Mobiles) networks to bring the country’s mobile communications into the digital age. Since… More

Amazon Kindle Unlimited promises a world of books

Australians have taken to Netflix with gusto, and to a lesser extent the locally provided Stan, although if you’re a subscriber to Foxtel/Seven’s Presto, you’ve only got a couple of months before that service is shuttered. Still, paying a fixed fee per month for a large library of content can make your entertainment choices pretty… More

Freeview app puts live television in your pocket

Australia’s free-to-air broadcasters are moving with the times, with the Freeview FV mobile app letting you watch live television on the move. The five major broadcasters have offered streaming Catch Up TV for a few years, making it easy to get up to speed with your favourite television shows, but in the last 12 months… More

VR is on sale, but don’t rush to buy

The hype surrounding virtual reality has been going on for years, but in recent times it’s reached fever pitch with a wide variety of approaches to VR now on store shelves. At the bargain basement end of the spectrum there are approaches like Google’s Cardboard (and upcoming Daydream VR) or Samsung’s Gear VR. At the… More

Google cloud storage Coldline keeps your precious business backups on ice

Google’s new business-grade cloud storage options are a cost-effective way to backup those files that are important but you can temporarily live without should disaster strike your business. You can’t over-emphasise the importance of offsite backup for precious business files. Should fire, flood or theft claim your office and all the computing devices within, it’s… More
