We thought it might be useful to provide a brief overview of the mobile world in our how to section this month. With the lines between the various devices we use becoming increasingly blurred, many people spend at least as much time looking at their mobile as they do their "main" device. We take a look at whether you actually even need a new phone at all, and make some recommendations to those that do.

Windows 10 defaults to collecting vast amounts of your data (anonymously). Unless you've deliberately told it otherwise, your machine will be doing this now. This month's HowTo blog explains how to locate Windows 10's privacy settings and change this if you prefer that it didn't.

Over the past few months, we have seen an increase in reports from users about a certain type of spam that we haven't covered in our blogs before. Rather than trying to get you to click something so they can install something nasty on your machine, this variant tries to embarrass you into handing over your details. We provide an example of this and also explain what's going on here and what you should do about it.

This month's HowTo provides an explanation as to how to go about using Mailchimp to create a email to send out to a distribution list. Mailchimp has millions of options, so it won't be possible to cover all of these. Instead, we will just look at the most basic path to getting your message out to the people you want to send it to!

As our other blog this month shows AI going wrong, it only seems fair to also cover an example of it going right. Or at least working as intended... Google have recently lifted the lid on a new AI technology that can make phone calls in a convincing human manner. Along with a video of the demonstration in question, our article takes a quick look at the possible implications of this.
