Will inflight Internet be a boon or a bust?

If you’ve travelled internationally, and especially in the USA, you may have hit the opportunity to use internet services while flying. This is usually at a cost, sometimes a quite severe cost depending on your flight status and quantity of access required. For many of us, stepping onto a plane is precisely when we step… More

Fire up your VPN when using public Wi-Fi

It’s best to play it safe when you’re out of the office using someone else’s Wi-Fi network. Mobile data has traditionally been rather expensive in Australia so we’re in the habit of jumping onto free Wi-Fi networks wherever we find them—from cafes and shopping centres to sporting stadiums and airport lounges. These days mobile data… More

New malware uses old tricks

It can be a tricky business keeping an internet connected PC or Mac safe from viruses and malware. Yes, I said PC or Mac; the days when Mac users could happily promote the idea that Mac OS was free from any kind of rogue applications are long gone, although it is fair to say that… More

Are you ready for MasterCard’s Selfie Pay?

You’ll soon be able to flash your smile to shop online as MasterCard prepares to launch facial recognition authentication in Australia.

Telstra recently suffered an outage in its network thanks to an unexpected fire in one of its exchanges located in Chatswood, New South Wales. For a couple of hours, and mostly (but not exclusively) if you were in NSW and on Telstra’s network, you may have had limited access to calls, mobile data and texts…. More

From fake utility bills to bogus money transfer requests, scammers have their sights set on small businesses in 2017. For all the advancements in modern technology, it seems the old scams are still the best scams. Con artists appear to have given up on trying to trick you into thinking you’ve won the lottery or… More

Can an all-Aussie streaming service survive?

Streaming video as a category has seen explosive growth in Australia in the past couple of years. The ACMA estimated back in 2015 that around 3.5 million Australians regularly used streaming media services, and that number will only have grown since then. While streaming media can chew up your broadband allowance, the allure of services… More

Australia waits for Amazon’s Alexa to start listening

Alexa’s name kept popping up everywhere at the recent CES 2017 electronics show in Las Vegas, but Amazon is still tight-lipped as to when its voice-controlled personal assistant will officially come to Australia. When it comes to online ecosystems Amazon rivals Apple and Google but, unlike its competitors, the US online retail giant has been… More

Computers continue to shrink, but you’ve got to be keen to use them

It’s an oft-used adage that over time, technology devices shrink remarkably. The very first computers were the size of entire rooms and, while revolutionary for their time, wouldn’t even power a small child’s toy today, but over time we’ve managed to shrink down the core components of computing into the devices that we use today,… More

Are you on the best business mobile plan?

Rather than blindly sticking with the same telco year after year, wedded to the same plan, it’s worth shopping around to see if you can get a better deal. Depending on what your business does, things might slow down over the summer break or it might be the busiest time of year. If there is… More
