When it comes to technology, there are early adopters (ie those mad people who will stand in the rain outside a store for days to get their fix) and what I like to call normal people.
I am usually one of the last people in my peer group to get the latest It Phone. To illustrate, I was still using a Blackberry Bold long after the first iPhone was already growing barnacles. But a serendipitous turn of events – aka the end of my iPhone 5s contract – meant I got my hands on an iPhone 6s Plus reasonably close to the release date :: Read the full SMH article »»»»

For more than a decade now, poker has undergone a dramatic transformation from a fairly niche card game into a legitimate global sport. This can easily be seen by the constant expansion and international television broadcast coverage presently enjoyed by the World Series of Poker – WSOP – and the World Poker Tour – WPT – circuit. Online poker websites have greatly contributed to the current success of the poker boom :: Read the full article »»»»

Optus customers can get unlimited broadband data for $115 under new bundle plans announced last week according to the company. Optus runs a really solid service – I’m perhaps biased, I have Optus cable and swear it’s the best – this unlimited offer is their top tier.
The unlimited plans are available across Optus’ copper, HFC and NBN fixed networks, Optus is Australia’s second largest telco. There are no hidden fees or conditions, the ” …only condition is our acceptable use policy, which applies to all plans,” an Optus spokesperson said.
The company announced a number of new plans, with a variety of inclusions. The new plans range from a base plan at $55 month to $115 for the top tier unlimited plan. A clever bonus the company is also offering – for customers not on unlimited plans – is “Double Data’ 2 months each year customers can double their monthly data allowance, for a $10 fee :: Read the full article »»»»

All tablets aren’t created equal, to prove this point Intel has teamed up with Flume – a musical project by übertalented Sydney artist Harley Streten – showcasing the potential of Intel powered Tablets.
The collaboration created a mesmerising film, a tincan band conducted by the most relaxed robot in the galaxy, performing a tune penned by Flume.
Intelligent Sounds, the film, brings to life Intel’s Fourth Generation of mobile processors.
We watched the film on an ASUS Windows 8 Tablet – powered of course by Intel – the vibrant, responsive graphics were definitely eye popping, a cinema in the palm, seriously good stuff :: Read the full article »»»»

The world it seems is filled with tablets, from the priced-low Pendo to the iPad. This blogger however has a penchant for Samsung’s Galaxy, but for those deciding on a tablet that’ll get them through the day at the same time as it’s able to fit in their satchel, Samsung hasn’t made things easy.
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, you’ve got two machines with exceedingly similar specifications to decide between. What we’ve got to check this afternoon is how the two make their mark in the world – and if it really is all about the S-Pen in the end.
By far my favourite – form and function – is The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, it works with an 8-inch display at 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, while the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 carries the same size and pixel density – they’re effective the same in day-to-day use, while the subtle differences in software will make the tiniest of differences up-close :: Checkout slashgears double review :: Read the full review here »»»»

The humble toaster hasn’t changed a bunch over the years, aside from upmarket variants like the Brabantia, not a heap of imagination has gone into a device that is used almost solely in the am.
Since it’s invention by Scotsman, Alan MacMasters in 1893, it hasn’t really been dragged into the 21st century. Accordingly, there isn’t a lot you can do with a device that exists purely to brown bread!?
Scott van Haastrecht begs to differ, and has added another string to the toaster’s bow by creating a device that prints a different picture onto your breakfast every morning.
Contrary to the impression the name may give, the Super Mega Mega Toaster isn’t a giant version of the humble bread-browning electrical appliance. Instead its trick is to source an image that has some relevance to a particular day from Google, then print on to your toast :: Read the full Gizmag article »»»»
