On ABC 702 Sydney Weekend computers this Sunday, May 19 from 10.15am Paul Wallbank and Angela Catterns will be looking at wearable tech.
Nokia recently filed a patent for vibrating cloth patches or tattoos that will be able to communicate with your phone. Every time you receive a text message, your tramp stamp will wobble.
The idea of vibrating tattoos is pretty simple compared to some of the advances we’re seeing in nanotechnology and miniaturising computers.
As usual we had a range of listeners calling in about computer issues. Here’s some of those we said we’d get back to;
Safari tool bars
Margaret called about websites being listed across the top of her Safari browser.
To get rid of these, click View in Safari and then take the tick off Hide Bookmarks Bar.
As a later caller suggested, it’s worthwhile making sure websites aren’t starting with the browser, you can fix that in Safari by clicking Safari, Preferences, General and making sure a new window is selected for what to do when the browser is opened.

Anti virus programs
We always have a caller asking about antivirus, Steve asked about antivirus on Windows Vista.
For most windows users, the free Microsoft Security Essentials is probably the best, and simplest, solution.
We love to hear from listeners about how tech is changing their lives so feel free call in with your questions or comments on 1300 222 702 or text on 19922702.
Should you not be in the Sydney area, you can stream the broadcast through the 702 Sydney website and call in anyway.
