It’s Australia Day 2016 — Have a great day!


Whether you’re at work or play today, we hope that you have a rewarding and enjoyable Australia Day. Google have shared a beautiful and compelling ‘Doodle 4 Google’ today, shown above, depicting Indigenous Australians, and it’s rather striking. As we celebrate the birth of our nation today, it’s important also to recognise our heritage, where we’ve all come from, and our joint journey forwards.

We’re proud of our fine country, but we acknowledge that in many respects we could do better too. This isn’t a platform for political comment, and so we’ll leave it at that.

Enjoy our national holiday, be it at work, at home, with family or friends, and take it easy.

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.

It’s a very powerful image. Even more remarkable is that it was drawn by a Year 10 student from Canberra. Well done, Ineka!
