Providing tech support for a teenage gamer proves challenging when they start to push the limits of your household tech.

Microsoft and Sony aren't planning to upgrade their flagship consoles for a few months yet, but you can still improve your gaming experience with some well-chosen accessories - even if the hardware at the core of the system stays the same.
I always thought this should have been a launch feature, but not to worry, it's available now thanks to the latest PlayStation 4 firmware update.
If you have a PlayStation 4 Pro, and you're playing one of those pesky games that haven't been patched for PRO PERFORMANCE, you can now activate 'boost mode' to make them perform better.
Dear Gizmodo, my 15-year old son is bugging me to buy him a PlayStation 4 Pro console for his birthday - he's even willing to put half the money towards it. The thing is, he already owns a PlayStation 4 which still works fine. Is this upgrade necessary to play future PlayStation games or will it just be a waste of money?
Virtual reality finally arrived. Self-driving cars started wandering streets and past red lights. SpaceX aborted a rocket launch four times within a week. Samsung started strong with the Galaxy S7 and finished with the Note7 nuking itself into orbit while you slept.
We had new graphics cards, and most of them were pretty damn good. Consoles broke the mould by releasing new hardware mid-cycle and becoming more like PCs than ever before. And, unsurprisingly, we found out once again that Einstein really knew his shit.
It's been a big year for tech. Let's break down this year's biggest moments.
There's a moment playing Infamous First Light, as the heroine made of light climbs up a wall in pitch black darkness, that I fully appreciate the hype around the PS4 Pro. The woman is a multicolored bundle of light particles and thanks to HDR, I can make out each particle and note the way they each cast their own vibrant glow on on the red brick wall. Normally, she'd be a big blob of light, but high dynamic range gives you details in moments of extreme brightness and extreme darkness. I'm watching the next big step in video games, and it is extraordinary.
Sony's latest and greatest PlayStation -- the most powerful console ever, capable of 4K and HDR and VR -- is out now. You can buy a PlayStation 4 Pro at a few different electronics stockists around the country, and while bundles and bargains are few and far between, here's where you can check for one.
MyRepublic, touting itself as the ISP "for gamers", hits Australia on 15 November with a 100Mbps unlimted NBN plan for $59.99 per month. Here's everything we know so far.
As my new favourite commenter Tom Haynes says "I'll probably even be able to afford that on my old age pension by the time the NBN reaches me here 15 km from the centre of the 6th largest city in Australia."
Horizon: Zero Dawn is a game that's been built from the ground up to take advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro's additional processing power over the now-three-year-old PS4. That means that if you have a 4K TV -- especially one with HDR support -- it'll look amazing. Even if you have a normal 1080p telly, it'll look better than any other console you can buy.
