  1. How To String Along A Scam Caller I got one of the sadly frequent scam calls the other day from “Windows Consumer care”, telling me about a “serious problem” with my computer. Rather than angrily hang up, I kept the call going as long as possible. Here’s why.
  2. Upgrade To iOS 6 Right Now Although iOS 6 won’t see an official release until September 19, you can install the final version right now. Anonymous public postings of the software update files has made it possible for even non-developers to get the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system. Here’s how.
  3. The US iPhone 5 Price Isn’t Massively Cheaper Than Australia (And Other Importing Mistakes) This is one of those things that seems to crop up with every iPhone launch, but just to be exceptionally clear; the US price for the iPhone 5 isn’t magically “cheaper” than the Australian price. It’s also not a very clever idea to import one from the States.
  4. Should I Upgrade To The iPhone 5? Apple overnight announced the iPhone 5, which goes on sale here in Australia next week. If you’re an existing iPhone user, is it a worthwhile upgrade?
  5. iPhone 5 Releases In Australia September 21 The much-anticipated iPhone 5 hits Australia on September 21, the same date as the US. Online pre-orders for the device will begin on September 14, and Apple will begin selling it in stores at 8am on September 21. For an outright buy, you’ll pay $799 for the 16GB version, $899 for 32GB or $999 for 64GB.
  6. This Is The Virgin Mobile iPhone 5 Pricing The first of the subsidiary carriers, Virgin Mobile now has its iPhone 5 pricing up, just like Optus, Vodafone and Telstra. Check it out here.

If you get aches and pains while you work, it might be time for an upgrade. This week we’re checking out five office chairs that offer the best combination of value, comfort and ergonomics.
  8. iPhone 5: Best And Worst Features The launch hype rolls on, but we’ve now got a much better picture of what the iPhone 5 will be capable of — and more markedly, what it won’t.
  9. Everything You Need To Know About iOS 6 In Under Three Minutes iOS 6 offers a lot of new features. We’ll show you everything you need to know in under three minutes.
  10. Why Apple’s Next iPhone Might Not Be 4G Reports indicate that Apple’s next iPhone may support “worldwide” 4G frequencies. It’s not out of the question, but equally, it’d pay to keep some perspective on the whole issue.


    8 out of 10 of these articles were about Apple - can anyone see the bias here? Isn't it time for a more balanced view of the mobile world?
