Google's finally giving up its long-standing habit of riffling through your inbox to see what you're interested in, perhaps paving the way for enhanced security.

If a service is free, you're the product. Never was that pearl of wisdom more true than when talking about Google's suite of free tools like Gmail and Google Drive.

Netflix has always been at the forefront of online video tech. It's been a pioneer in streaming HDR and in streaming 4K, in offline viewing and data saving. Its most recent launch, though, is pioneering something very different: an interactive, choose-your-own adventure episode of Puss in Boots that lets kids decide how the TV show's storyline unfolds.

According to data released today, there were 23,401,892 people who were counted in Australia on the night of the 2016 Census who were usually resident in Australia.

After adjusting for undercount and adding back those who were overseas on census night, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) estimates that as of December 2016, Australia’s population was around 24.4 million.

The phenomenon that is PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds knows no bounds. When I'm home, I play PUBG. When I'm at work, I watch YouTube videos about PUBG. The most recent little gem I've stumbled on is a phenomenally detailed guide to sound in the online multiplayer competitive Battle Royale-style shooter, and it's so useful.

A sleepy industrial park in the inner west of Sydney is a world away from remote Birdsville, Queensland and the 100 or so locals who call it home. About 2-3 day’s drive with the sun in your eyes. But this is where the voyage begins, as finishing touches are made to KFC’s full-blown original recipe big rig. Dubbed “The Colonel”, it’s ridiculous and over the top. There’s a slide on the side. A festival within a festival headed to the Big Red Bash — the world’s most remote music festival that sees Birdsville’s population grow to over 7000. All in the shadow of a giant red sand dune on the edge of the Simpson desert.

After the inevitable lull in releases that follows every E3, this week is back with a bang. There's not a great deal of flagship releases, although Breath of the Wild is getting its first DLC, Arizona Sunshine makes its way over to PSVR, America's Army is coming to the PS4 and there's a new Danganronpa game. And the PS4 is finally getting Elite Dangerous, too.

But I can't shake the feeling that I'm forgetting something. Why, of course. Crash Bandicoot is out this week.

The upcoming Hyundai i30 N is the first proper high performance car from Hyundai — not a sporty car like the Tiburon or Veloster, but an actual sports car. And it's being tested for Australian conditions, too, with a blast around Mount Panorama last month showing off its wheel-cocking chops and the lovely sound of its turbocharged four-banger popping fuel through the exhaust on the overrun.

Ever wondered what Harry Potter would do if he wasn’t the Chosen One, and just worked in a coffee shop? Or if Iris West was the one struck by lightning instead of her fiancé? Or maybe Luke Skywalker decided to take after his mother and solve problems diplomatically, while his more emotional sister took up her father’s lightsaber? Then try the world of fan-fiction- an online community fanbase that is built on this idea of what-ifs.

With the release of the 10.5-inch iPad and the upcoming laptop-friendly features of iOS 11, soon you'll be able to officially replace your laptop with a sheet of futuristic Apple glass. It's been a long time coming, but I thought I'd take it one step further, and see if you can replace your whole phone and laptop set up with an iPad instead.
