With iOS 11, Apple introduced the HEIF format for photos. HEIF stands for "High Efficiency File Format," and allows the photos you take on your phone to be squished down to the smallest possible size without losing quality. That smaller size means you can take a whole lot more pictures before you run out of space on your iPhone (or the fact that you're a shutterbug isn't going to prevent you from downloading an app).

The brand, shiny new powered-by-Roku Telstra TV is here (well, on October 31, anyway) - combining subscription TV and on-demand streaming with free-to-air, which we all definitely still watch.

Telstra is boasting the upgraded device (which will cost $192 outright or with the $99 bundle like it's predecessor), will be the country's very first live TV, catch-up and on-demand search function.

I've been using the new Nokia 3310 3G as my primary phone for a full work week, and it's been like living in a localised time distortion field where I was in 2000 and everybody else was 17 years ahead.

Boomerang, the email add-on that lets you control when to send email, is now a free full-featured email app on iOS. We've included the Android version in our Android download pack for years and the app started in 2010 as a Gmail add-on, so this has been a long time coming. The iOS version is in beta, according to a FAQ buried inside the app's settings menu.

AFL fans have a pretty, uh, rocky, relationship with Telstra's AFL Live Pass. Compared to other livestreaming services, Live Pass is just a little backward.

In 2016, the service was okay, but in 2017, seemingly without warning, the size of the viewing screen was reduced. Fans were not happy. Concerns raised by the ACCC are now seeing Telstra offer refunds.

In the era of 'fake news' and 'anti-vaxxers', being able to detect the difference between Good Science and Bad Science is critical to see through the nonsense. This 12 point guide is an excellent overview of how you can spot any untruths that you might see floating around your social media pages, you know, like how injecting bicarb soda cures cancer (it doesn't).
