What’s your tech disaster backup plan when you travel for work?

It’s important to have a Plan B in case your tech fails you while you’re on the other side of the country or halfway around the world. As careful as you might be when you travel, there’s always the risk that your gadgets could be lost, broken or stolen while you’re on the road. Should… More

Are you making the most of your browser?

Ask most folks what an Internet browser is for, and they’ll look at you as though you’ve suddenly grown an extra head. Internet browsers are for browsing the Internet, right? Well, you’re not strictly speaking incorrect to make that assumption, but the reality is that while browsers grew as a category of software designed for… More

Google’s free-roaming Daydream headset offers a brand new world of virtual reality

Offering more immersive worlds than smartphone-based VR systems, without relying on a tethered computer or games console, Google’s standalone Daydream headsets are promising to take VR to the next level. Virtual reality experiences are typically divided into two camps. On one side you’ve got Google Cardboard, letting you slip practically any smartphone into a cheap… More

Microsoft’s revamped Surface Pro promises all-day battery life

Since the inception of its Surface line of tablet and 2-in-1 PCs, Microsoft has had to toe a careful line. It has high aspirations for its own in-house hardware lines(Can a bigger Surface tempt you into Microsoft’s tablet vision?), but at the same time the larger Microsoft group doesn’t exactly want its other hardware partners… More

Is your business ready for Google’s big HTTPS push?

Google is determined to see encryption used right across the web and it’s preparing to publicly shame businesses which don’t add HTTPS security to their websites. While the HTTP standard is great for building webpages to share with the world, it wasn’t really designed for those times when you need to ensure that no-one is… More 


Are telco services getting worse, or are we getting wiser?

You can’t get onto the Internet in any reliable way in Australia without dealing with a telecommunications company in some respect, whether you opt for a fixed line broadband service via ADSL, Cable or NBN, or simply utilise mobile broadband services. When these services work and you’re correctly billed, everything is fine and dandy. But… More 


Voice over WiFi can save the day when you’re stuck in a mobile blackspot

Kicking in when your mobile phone reception flakes out, VoWiFi ensures that your calls don’t drop out when you run out of coverage bars. In a big country like Australia there are always going to be spots where the mobile coverage is questionable, not just when you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere but even… More 


wanna cry hacker malware

WanaCrypt0r 2.0 shows the destructive power of malware

A lot of computer users tend to think of malware as a problem that affects other people, and especially people who were doing something that they shouldn’t. Download a dodgy file, or open a dodgy website, and you’re asking for trouble, goes the conventional thinking. I’m certainly not going to argue that either of those… More 


Ultrabook

Don’t sacrifice substance for style when buying a portable computer

Slimline Ultrabooks and hybrid 2-in-1 tablets look great and are light on your shoulder, but make sure they still meet all your needs when you’re working on the road. These days there’s more choice than ever if you’re looking for a portable computer and it’s easy to get swept up in the latest trends. If… More 


Do your sums carefully before leasing a phone

For decades businesses have been leasing equipment that they either lacked the funds to buy outright, or in situations where outright ownership didn’t make sense over the longer term.
