Every time a new platform comes out, the gadget world runs headfirst into a vicious Catch-22: How do you get people to adopt new technology when there isn't any content, and if there isn't anyone using the tech, how do you convince developers to make content for that platform? Recently, we've seen this situation unfold for VR headsets like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Despite both systems' ability to evoke profound jaw-dropping reactions from those who've tried it, VR is still too expensive and thin on content for people to really care.

A couple of weeks ago I was braving the big crowds of E3 to meet with the Nvidia team, and while I was ostensibly there to check out Destiny 2 on a PC, what I really wanted to know was what the hell Max-Q Design was. Nvidia announced its new design philosophy back in May, and I'd spent the intervening weeks unable to shake the sense that this was all just a great big marketing ploy — an acknowledgement that Nvidia's most powerful GPUs often end up in great big computing monstrosities.

Screens are great. They are a visual gateway into the primary forms of entertainment that modern society indulge in. But as they become larger and sleeker, their mobility is an issue.

There's some pretty crazy high-end tech on the floor of Computex in Taipei this year. Chief amongst them are two new monitors that take the absolute best tech from high-end TVs and cram it into desktop-friendly sizes, although the price tags will probably put any other peripheral you could ever think of to shame. If you're cashed up and ready to frag, the Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ and the Acer Predator X35 are equally worthy of your attention.

Buying a gaming monitor has always been a bit like Australian broadband. You could have really nice image quality, 4K and HDR support, a 120hz or 144hz refresh rate, plenty of real estate, but you couldn't have it all especially if you wanted it to be affordable. And even if you're prepared to spend a pretty penny, chances are you'll still have to compromise somewhere.

You couldn't have it all in a gaming monitor. Well, that used to be the case.

As someone who lives and works in a city, I witness just how scarce space is becoming on daily basis — from fitting more people into an office to apartments.

People like me need smart solutions for this problem, including when it comes to tech. Anyone who is passionate about their rigs don't want to compromise on specs to save space. And we don't have to.

We've spent the last week scouring the halls and show floors of the Consumer Electronics Show in gaudy Las Vegas, and we've found something worth writing home about. A few new smartphones big and small, expensive and inexpensive, and a few world firsts, were on display — and will be coming to Australia.

My family is big on Christmas movies. We always made a big deal out of it when I was a kid.

Even as an adult I enjoy being able to go home for the holidays to watch some of the heart-warming classics — Die Hard, Home Alone and Batman Returns.

My love of a good, bloody holiday flick may not have changed, but my tolerance for excruciating summer heat definitely has.

Within the last two years, routers have gone from ugly boxes tucked away in shame to well-designed products, complete with a variety of new technologies and user-friendly interfaces. Led by ambitious Kickstarter projects like Eero, Luma and Starry, routers are having a gadget moment — and that could finally help people realise how important the little box really is.
