No matter what your console is, you can add passcode, verification methods and two-factor authentication options and do it either through your web browser or on the console itself. Sorry, but you're out of excuses of why you haven't secured your account from people looking to steal your personal information.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

I only bought the PS4 Pro because Sony told me to. Sure, I knew what 4K was, and I could spell HDR, but that was about it. My TV at the time was still merely “full” HD (a descriptor I’d since learn to be a vicious lie) and I always figured 30fps was about the best a console scrub could hope for.

Twice a year, the GeekPwn carnival is held around the world. It's a security geek contest for smart devices, and is often a place for white-hat hackers to show vulnerabilities in devices like smart cameras, mainstream routers and smart devices.

At the latest GeekPwn event, a PlayStation 4 curiously made an appearance. And you know what else popped up? A working version of Linux, Super Mario Bros, and more importantly, version 4.01 of the PS4 firmware..

With all that in mind, I enlisted the help of my dad, a baby boomer, practical buyer and casual gamer, to test out the PlayStation VR.

The virtual reality wars are heating up, with Sony confirming pricing and availability for PlayStation VR in Australia.
