Modern technology gives us many things.

The top-rating Tech Guide podcast is celebrating its fifth birthday


It’s five years since we recorded the first episode of Tech Guide and we’re still going strong with Episode 254 of the top-rating podcast, hosted by editor Stephen Fenech, now available.

Episode 1 of Tech Guide was recorded in June 2012 and here we are 254 episodes later helping our listeners become updated and educated about the latest consumer tech news and reviews.

On this week’s show: can you get away with a photograph of your driver’s licence on your phone instead of you actual licence, why we’re not updating our smartphones as often as we used to and Telstra switches on its one millionth wi-fi hotspot.

In the Tech Guide reviews, we check out the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and Sphero’s new Spider-man interactive toy and we discuss the expansion of Samsung Pay.

In the Tech Guide Help Desk, we chat about updating your old iMac with an SSD drive and how to track your pets.
