We’re now on Facebook! (finally)


Yep, it’s taken us a few months but we’re finally on Facebook. So if you’d prefer to keep up with our mix of stories, tutorials, specification lists and news about the latest smartphones, tablets and mini PCs through Facebook, just hit the Like button on the right here.

Compact, low-power computing devices have taken the world by storm and sure, we’re not the only website providing the latest news, views, tips and tricks on them – in fact, there are a number of great sites doing something similar. But the great thing is that we all bring something different to the collective knowledge available about these devices.

My background is a Bachelor of Science, majoring in electronics/computing from Macquarie University, so it’s not just the software in these devices I find interesting, it’s the hardware itself, how it works. My experience as contributor editor to Australian PC User and TechLife magazines means I’m also interested in how these devices compare with one another, how reliable they are and importantly, which ones offer the best value.

And finally, as a contributor to APC magazine, I enjoy the technical aspect of these devices – how many Cortex A9 cores does it take to match an Intel Atom dual-core chip is something that interests me – no, truly.

Okay, enough self-promotion, back to the stories!

    Hi Darren,
    this is great news. Good luck with the FB page.
    I’m loving your coverage, an especially your acknowledgement that the software on these devices are the main source of complaints.
    Is there any chance you could do a series on android security and malware? I am (probably unjustifiably) worried about these low cost devices having malware baked into the ROM.
    Best wishes.

    Looking forward to liking the site!
    It seems to be difficult to comment however or I’d be doing it more.

      Thanks, Michael. What problems are you having? Can you describe them for us?

        When using my phone (Droid Bionic) or Windows 7 64 desktop I sometimes get a white screen after hitting the post comment button. I think it may have happened on my Toshiba Excite AT300 too. Running Dolphin browser on Android and Firefox on Windows.

            We’ve just added a new plugin which hopefully will fix the problem. (Looks like it may have already? :)
