    In those times where you should report something non-urgent to the police, but don't know who you should be calling, don't tie up triple-zero. Policelink has now launched an app to help out Queenslanders who might not necessarily remember the right number to call.

    Don't want to keep your Wi-Fi network wide open, but want to make it easy for users or perhaps visitors to connect? An add-in to QR droid allows admins to create a QR code that will enable users to simply walk up, scan, and get connected when they're on premise without broadcasting a password to pesky neighbours.
