March 2021 Main Meeting
The Apple M1X Mac Mini was one of many items Alex reviewed at this Zoom meeting.
At about 2/3 the size of an A4 sheet and weighing just 1.2kg, the Apple M1X Mini Computer packs a lot of punch. With 8GB of RAM they are available in 256GB and 512GB storage versions and could be an excellent replacement for that tired old desktop PC you’ve been struggling with for way too long.
If coupled to an optional USB-C Hub as shown here, an extra USB-C data port, three USB-A 3.0 ports, plus micro/SD card readers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack port are added to provide convenient access to even more of your peripherals.
Alex also discussed the new MacBook Air, ran a live 5G speed test and lots more. » See the video report here.
February 2021 Main Meeting
Samsung’s Home robots on show at the recent Consumer Technology Association
Our February Main meeting was again presented by Alex via Zoom from Canberra. He began by showing a number of short video highlights of Samsung’s Home robots seen at the recent Consumer Technology Association show. These included robots performing office duties, house cleaning, stacking a dish-washer and even robotic pets.
Other topics discussed were 5G smartphones, cheaper phone plans, satellite broadband and more. Alex even managed to squeeze in a short local radio interview on technology that we were able to listen in on. » View the full report here.
