Chris Rowland   Editor and Publisher

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

I would love to do this.

Sadly I don’t think I have the money for this, nor do I live anywhere near a campus.

You don’t live near the internet? How are you posting this then?

Sadly I don’t have 8 grand for an online degree either.

Check out the possibility of FEE-HELP to pay your course fees for you. No up front cost to the student 🙂

It’s done online – you don’t need to be near a campus. More importantly, you don’t have to pay for it either. If you are eligible for FEE-HELP funding (most people are), then you don’t pay for any of it up-front.. you can pay it off through the tax system. I did my undergrad degree this way.
