Huawei’s US ban could have serious effects in Australia

The US government recently listed Huawei as a company that posed a national security risk. As a result, barred US companies from dealing with the Chinese telecommunications giant.

In the productivity applications space, there are a few standards that have emerged over decades, largely focused around the most popular applications within a given field. While you can use many image editing apps, Adobe’s Photoshop is so much the standard that it’s effectively a verb in its own right. You don’t just adjust an… More 


Apple’s new iPad Mini: Small and powerful, but pricey

Apple recently refreshed its lineup of iPad tablets, adding the first new small tablet it’s had for four years with the introduction of the Apple iPad Mini (2019). Confusingly, it’s still just called the Apple iPad Mini, so if you were buying one, it’d be a good idea to make sure that somebody wasn’t trying… More

In the world of media streaming services, Netflix is the king.
