Understanding your 5G choices

Vodafone recently launched its 5G network, joining the other big industry heavyweights Telstra and Optus in offering its customer base access to (potentially) quite high speed 5G broadband and mobile services. The potential of 5G is quite high; while what we’ve got in Australia now is what’s typically called “mid-band” 5G, operating mostly at 3.5Ghz


ACMA Moves To Secure Mobile Number Porting Safety

If you’ve ever changed the provider for your mobile service, you will have encountered the interesting state of mobile number portability. Australian consumers have been able to freely move between mobile providers while keeping their mobile numbers since 2001, which is extremely useful if you do want to switch for reasons of better coverage or


Samsung Galaxy Book S Review: Great battery life but it’s not quite Windows as you know it

I’ve recently had the opportunity to test out one of the first Samsung notebook PCs to grace our shores for some years. Overseas Samsung is quite busy in the notebook space, especially in business and gaming-specific laptops, but here in Australia it’s been a while since it’s offered up any Windows laptops at all.

What is Data Backup and Why is it Important?

Of all the computer maintenance activities out there, having a backup of your important data is the one you really, really should take seriously.

TPG/Vodafone Merger Could Signal Broadband Price War

After significant tussles with the ACCC, the Federal Court recently gave the green light to the merger of telco giants TPG and Vodafone. While the ACCC has stated that it’s “considering” the judgement – and it technically has 28 days to launch an appeal – it’s almost certain that the merger will go ahead. Which


Google Maps Hits 15 Years As It Looks To Its Future

Google is best known for its dominance of the online search market, but that’s far from the tech giant’s only software offering. Outside of search, there’s one Google service I use more than any other, and that’s Google Maps. Google Maps recently notched up 15 years in operation, but what you might not know is


Microsoft reverses its position on Windows 7 updates in the weirdest possible way

Typically, when a company announces that a tech product is no longer supported, it’s because it doesn’t intend to provide any support for that product. It’s too old, it’s too costly to keep providing updates, or the userbase is so small that there really doesn’t seem to be much point anyway. Microsoft certainly gave plenty


How long should tech products get updates for?

It’s one of those “how long is a piece of string” questions in one sense, but I’m sure most of us have been through the process of having some piece of technology long enough for it be declared obsolete, unless you’re very keen on buying up new phones, laptops, printers and other devices on a


If you’re running Windows 10, you need to update it right now

Statistically speaking, you’re probably running a Windows PC – it’s still the world’s most-used operating system, and not by a small margin, and it’s fairly likely you’re on Windows 10. With the recent removal of support for Windows 7 operating systems, it’s even more likely. Being big and popular means that most applications are written
