Modern technology gives us many things.

We rev up the Tech Guide podcast with Bond stunt driver Mark Higgins


We’re shifting into a higher gear for Episode 190 of the top-rating Tech Guide podcast, hosted by editor Stephen Fenech, and chatting to James Bond stunt driver Mark Higgins.

We caught up with Higgins while he was in Australia for the release of the latest Bond film Spectre on Blu-ray and DVD.

Higgins is actually a rally car driver who first came on to Bond films in Quantum of Solace before backing up for Skyfall and Spectre.

Our interview covers the one-off DB10 Aston Martin created for Spectre, the demands of stunt driving and what it was like to drive a car into the Tiber River in Rome.

Also on the show, Apple confirms a March 21 launch event, new Optus plans to give customers a new smartphone every 12 months and the app that can help users avoid the dangers of sitting for extended periods of time.

In the Tech Guide reviews, we take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones and the Arlo Q security camera from Netgear.

In the Tech Guide Help Desk, we delve into the many hidden features of the S7 and S7 Edge.
