Games have E3. Tech has CES (Consumer Electronics Show). The world’s largest tech companies like Samsung, Google and Sony descend on Las Vegas every year to show off their latest wares. As always the show brought a range of different technology from the already applicable to near future concepts, presented by smaller, innovative companies as well as the big guns. There were various TVs and displays, including LG’s insane bendy ‘Wallpaper’, an ultra-thin OLED TV (as seen on the front cover). Honda unveiled cute concept robots from one with an expressive digital face meant to provide support to people, to one that provides chair-type mobility. And then there’s the AirSelfie 2, a miniature drone with a 12 MP camera that could provide an alternative to selfie sticks. It’s always an exciting…

should we be worried?

Computer viruses and computer flaws always sound so damned malevolent, magnifying the possible damage that they can do to our equipment in our minds. Chances are, you may have heard of the latest security issues that have been designated Spectre and Meltdown and, actually, they are potentially very serious. However, rather than being data hunting or resource-sapping viruses, they are essentially flaws in chip architecture, and their existence has been highlighted by the manufacturers themselves, so you can be sure that they are fairly close to a resolution. Computer chip architecture is a highly complex subject and becoming increasingly so as chips are required to do more, faster and with fewer real-time errors. In fact, chips are becoming so complex that they are becoming increasingly designed by computers themselves, with little…

So, there’s no way that I’m going to know which tech gadgets are going down a storm among her classmates this year. With all of this in mind, and with my daughter’s birthday on the horizon,…
