How to keep tech cool in an Aussie summer

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017 by

Australian summer doesn’t mess around – with temperatures reaching in the forties, it’s vital to stay cool, hydrated and follow the sun safety rules of slip, slop, slap, seek and slide. Everyone has a plan to beat the heat, which can range from a humble pedestal fan all the way to state-of-the-art air conditioning – but have you made plans for your tech?

All electrical devices generate heat and it’s perfectly normal for them to be warm to the touch after they’ve been running for a while, but running too hot for too long can negatively affect performance and eventually cause devices to break. You may be surprised to know that we’ve seen cases of modems overheating during heat waves, particularly in desert climates where the weather gets hottest.

Although broadband modems are typically left switched on all the time, they’re not necessarily in any danger of overheating as long as you follow these simple steps. You can apply the same logic to all of your devices (including computers, laptops, game consoles and smartphones) to ensure that you and your tech stay cool this summer.

However, different people want different things from their web browser, so just picking the fastest one may not right way to go. You may prefer a browser that prioritises privacy, or one that has lots of custom options so you can fine-tune it to your preferences.

We decided to take a look at all the web browsers that are competing with the age-old defaults that come installed on your devices, namely Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Apple’s Safari. After all, if you don’t know what’s out there, how do you know that you’re really using the best browser for your needs?
