Will your home end up relying on the NBN’s Fibre to the Distribution Point?

After starting out as a minor player, FttDP appears destined to play a key role in Australia’s National Broadband Network. The NBN has become a political football over the last few years, with the network design changing several times along the way. As a result it’s hard to know exactly what kind of connection will… More 


Give your business a security spring clean

The changing of the seasons presents the perfect opportunity to get into good habits when it comes to keeping your business safe. We all have our annual rituals, like changing the batteries in the office smoke alarm when we adjust the clocks for daylight savings. Just like that smoke alarm, there are digital security issues… More 


Next-Gen GPS may skip satellites to keep you on the road

The chances are pretty good that you’ve used the GPS (Global Positioning System) hardware at some point in the recent past, whether on a dedicated satellite navigation device such as a car-based system, or any of a number of GPS apps available for popular smartphone operating systems. It’s even the basis for popular gaming applications,… More 


2G’s days are totally numbered

If you’re still holding onto an older phone — most likely a Nokia handset, because they were very much the style ten or more years ago — and you’re happy with it, I’m sorry to say that your happiness is going to be cut rather abruptly short. That’s because older candybar style phones are almost… More 


What is Wide Colour Gamut and why should you care?

There’s more to improved picture quality than sharper resolution and extra detail in the shadows, it’s also about displaying a wider range of colours. Today’s widescreen televisions and handheld gadgets look pretty amazing, but the truth is that they can’t actually reproduce every colour that we can see with the human eye. They look pretty… More 


Get your day in order before you get down to business

If your inbox or calendar serves as a de facto to-do list then it might be time to overhaul the way you get things done. There’s no shortage of self-help gurus offering the path to productivity nirvana, but in the end most of us pick and choose from their advice to cobble together a system… More 


Have you checked your backups recently?

Everyone should backup their files. Everyone. It’s a terribly boring mantra, and while it’s relatively easy to set backups to your choice of removable media or out to the cloud, depending on your preferences, and to a certain extent the speed of your upload connection if backing up to the cloud, I still hear horror… More 


Yahoo’s data breach may be good for overall security standards

Yahoo is the latest big tech company to be the victim of a large scale security breach. Although in Yahoo’s case, it’s somewhat broken the scale used to measure such matters. Yahoo has reported that some 500 million user account details, including user names, email addresses, telephone numbers and hashed passwords may have been stolen… More 


A great DAC is the key to iPhone 7 sound quality

As Apple ditches the headphone jack, the sound quality of Lightning audio gear depends on its Digital to Analogue Converter. Apple is painting the loss of the analogue headphones jack as a great leap forward, but “digital sound” doesn’t automatically mean great sound. The digital signal coming out of the iPhone’s Lightning port still needs… More 


Reusing passwords is a risky business

If you’re using the same password for multiple online services then you might be handing hackers the keys to your business. Coming up with a new password each time you sign up for a new service can be a hassle, but not as much of a hassle as dealing with a digital break-in. If you’re… More
