What is a Raspberry Pi, and why is it so deliciously priced? Is the new Conficker worm coming for your PC? What is Vodafone's network guarantee, and why are we all enemies of the internet?
Over the years no other software tool has helped my daily work as much as Microsoft Excel. I don't use Excel for financial work, but rather I use it for all kinds of computing tasks:It's very handy for doing network bandwidth computation.
As long-term evolution (LTE) networks, such as Telstra's new 4G network, bring about super fast mobile broadband to consumers across the globe, they could also potentially open up smartphones, tablets and other devices to hacks that previously only concerned PC users, according to network vendor Alcatel-Lucent.
In another life and another time, I ran the network testing program at PC Magazine. Back then, Mag (as it was called) evaluated application and device performance primarily on 10Mbps (gasp) or later a 100Mbps Ethernet link -- pretty much the state of the art then.

My very first Bluetooth GPS receiver came from Pharos and that baby performed like no other I have seen since then. I could throw the little "hockey puck" GPS receiver in the back seat and it would still get a solid strong signal served up to my laptops and PDAs. Pharos has been making a line of Pocket PC and now Windows Mobile devices with a GPS focus for a few years and I have tried a couple of them without being that impressed. I was just sent their latest device, the Pharos Traveler 137, to check out for a bit and was very interested in it because it is the first Windows Mobile-based device that supports T-Mobile's unique 1700 MHz 3.5G data network. After spending a few days with the device, I think it is one of the best Pharos models made and may be compelling for T-Mobile customers looking for a WM device.
