CSIRO’s Centre for Broadband Innovation heralds appy, appy smart home!
The wired home is no longer the realm of dreams. But neither is it totally real. It has simply taken too long to come, and has still come to too few homes, seemingly beyond the reach of most. All that may be about to quickly change, according to CSIRO’s Australian Centre for Broadband Innovation.

Bluetooth for your PC [not just for shouty, look-at-me types with ear pieces]
Poor old Bluetooth. For a while now it’s been misappropriated by loud, shouty types stomping up the high street fog-horning ‘Buy! Buy! SELL!’ into their ear pieces.

Phishing, for those who’ve not had the pleasure, refers to fraudulent electronic attempts to acquire personal information such as bank and credit card information, usernames and passwords, and any other details that can be used in identity theft.

The only foolproof way to keep your info from being permanently available to the other WWW – the whole wide world – is to make sure it doesn’t get uploaded in the first place.

As tempting as it is to confirm whether there’s $5 squillion sitting in the bank account of some nice old reverend from foreign climes who’s devoted his life to poor children and very cute puppies, we both know this one pongs to high heaven of over-ripe spam. But the good news is there are a number of precautions you can take to avoid scams, protect your personal information, and keep your email address safe.

Nix pesky cyber spies [leaving your computer unshaken and unstirred…]
For the regular Joes and Josephinas amongst us, encounters with 007-style super-spies or shifty-eyed, trench-coated baddies aren't part of our day-to-day lives. But if you’re the proud owner of a computer, you do need to be vigilant for cyber spyware.

A clear majority of Australians today value their laptops more than their TVs, according to a survey commissioned by Intel.
