great things

Declaring winners is problematic. One could argue that anointing a thing to be the very best of its class does great injustice to many other almost-there products. And rightly so. The many factors that determine what’s best include value, and that changes as time passes and prices drop, thus reordering the podium. Or perhaps a product we’re looking at right now gets a firmware update that enables it to do new and more fantastic things, thus elevating it a little further up the ladder. But that’s time and change for you. Always messing things up. What is true is that in any given moment of time, given sufficient expertise, it is indeed possible to make lists and rank things. And, that process is entirely accurate in a given moment. That moment,…

inside apc

APC is Australia’s oldest consumer technology magazine – having been consistently in print for over 35 years, since our first issue way back in May 1980 – and we take that heritage and responsibility very seriously. While our focus is obviously on the personal computer – it’s in our name, after all – the very definition of the PC has changed and shifted markedly since the early 1980s. As such, we touch on many other areas of tech, too, from smartphones and apps to peripherals, accessories, online services and beyond. We have two main goals: to track down the best of modern tech and also to help our readers make the most of it. We’re also an open church in terms of platforms. We know most people aren’t wed to a…

Apple refreshes MacBook Air and Mac Mini FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS. Although both the MacBook Air and Mac Mini have lacked considerable refreshes for quite a number of years at this point, they both continue to have a dedicated fanbase. These fans have been appeased with the announcements of newer iterations (alongside another iPad Pro) at Apple’s most recent hardware event, with both refreshes sticking to the form factor that brought them their initial attention, but with beefed-up internals.

number crunch

30 MILLION DUCKDUCKGO’S DAILY SEARCH VOLUME HAS INCREASED BY 50% SINCE LAST YEAR Although it took privacy-centric search engine DuckDuckGo 7 years before it hit an average of 10 million daily searches, its next two milestones didn’t take quite as long. In the next year, traffic doubled to 20 million daily searches and, as of today, has hit 30 million, marking a 50% increase over this time last year.

connecting the world to the internet

The rate at which technology is advancing is rapid – it’s changing the way we communicate with friends and family, the way we work, and the way our children are educated. And it’s all on the back of the internet. Yet, there are nearly four billion people in the Developing World who still have no access to the internet. Being unable to take advantage of the a connected world is not restricted to African and Asian nations, however – there are millions of people in rural America and in remote communities in Australia that are still offline. Large, extremely well-funded tech companies like Facebook, Elon Musk’s SpaceX, and Google are, however, trying to bridge the digital divide, finding new and innovative ways to connect the remote corners of the world. The solar-powered…
