8K TVs unveiled at CES 2019, but don’t rush to buy one

Every year, the consumer electronics industry depends on Las Vegas, and not for the reasons one might feasibly head to Las Vegas for. OK, to be fair, a certain amount of gambling and drinking does go on, but it’s the backdrop for the Consumer Electronics Show, where the world’s big electronics companies — and thousands… More 


5G will be big in 2019 (eventually)

The new year is upon us, and with it, the promise of all sorts of new tech gadgets, with everything from foldable phones to smarter electric cars for sale. Connectivity is the glue that binds those two quite different concepts together, and indeed just about any other technology you’d care to name, because we absolutely… More 


We’re all still pretty bad at passwords

So, what is your password? No, don’t answer that. Really, please don’t. Partly because the whole point of a password should be that it’s a secret known only to you, but also because there’s increasing evidence that we’re still not much better at password security than we were last year. Each year, SplashData (100-worst-passwords-top-50) puts… More 


Facebook data bug leaves photos up for grabs

2018 has been a year marked by some pretty big and significant privacy stories in technology. In one sense, this has been a healthy matter, because it’s made a lot more people aware of what it is they’re sharing online, where their data is tracked and what it’s used for. There’s plenty of data about… More 


What will Microsoft’s switch to Chrome mean for your web browsing?

The history of web browsers is fascinating if you’re of a geeky bent, from the early days of NSCA Mosaic through to the explosive growth of Netscape and its eventual ousting by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) browser. If you’re not that geeky, you’re probably more used to clicking on an icon to access the web,… More 


What a YouTube publicity stunt tells us about device security

Just recently, 50,000 printer owners got an unexpected result out of their devices. Not so much a paper jam or out of ink message — we’ve all been there — but instead a message imploring users to subscribe to Internet “celebrity” PewDiePie’s Youtube channel and unsubscribe from an Indian-produced channel that in recent months has… More 


Quick battery tips to keep your laptop or phone running longer

We live in a world of portable technology, which gives us access to information at the tap of a keyboard or the touch of a finger. Which is great when you need GPS directions in an unfamiliar city, need to check your work email for a vital document or simply want to confirm who the… More 


Apple’s new iPad Pro is powerful, but it’s not for everyone

Apple’s recently released its latest range of iPad Pro tablets, with a specific pitch towards creative professionals. That’s due to the underlying A12X Bionic processor, a more powerful version of the chip found in its Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR phones. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks testing and evaluating… More 


Foldable phones will lead to foldable laptops

It wasn’t all that long ago (in strictly historical terms) that the majority of computers sold were in desktop form. That’s the style with a central case, external monitor, keyboard and mouse, although that description also suits many of the integrated systems such as Apple’s iMac lines are as “desktop” PCs. We’ve now shifted well… More 


Is now the time to consider smart lightbulbs?

Lightbulbs, in one form or another, have been around for over 200 years. The first light bulbs were highly experimental, highly expensive, and not entirely practical up until Thomas Edison’s twist on the bulbs that had been produced before made it more practical for everyday use. We’ve shifted (largely) from those early incandescent filament lightbulbs… More
