When “The Buggles” sang Video killed the Radiostar in 1979.. they were singing about TV which was the newest invention and technology breakthrough buzz at that time.
Technology has just been smashing its own invention barriers since then, with new ground breaking tech being introduced almost every year since then.
Smartphones and tablets and even smart wristwatches now are already replacing desktops and laptops, well almost anyway. Radio still carries on… but now via other new mediums, like Spotify and Itunes which brings songs directly to you anywhere via internet streaming and wifi.
TV has not been left behind – with people being able to watch – what they want, when they want – on demand thanks to netflix and their like. They can watch it on their internet connected Smart TV or even on their mobile phone, tablet and wristwatch screens.
Technology will keep changing, but rest assured you can count on digital grog to cover it.
I have been blogging for 10+ years now and you can check out more about me and my blog below – but I think Elly Glendening (thanks Elly) from influencing.com has done a better job writing about me on their website Influencing.com over here.

Where are we right now with DigitalGrog ?
I checked Google today and was chuffed to see my blog ranking at no.3 (update – current no#1 May 9th 2018) for the term “Tech Blogs Australia” just under the big tech websites like www.cnet.com.au and www.gizmodo.com.au at the time of writing this.
This will probably not last, but Google has definitely liked our blog well enough to place digital grog with such exciting top rank listings.
Snapshot below for posterity.
Why the blog name, why the blog domain
This blog domain –> www.digitalgrog.com.au has gone through a few name & domain name changes before, so if you see some remnants of this old blog URL and references, my apologies on not tidying up properly.
I have finally updated my blog domain to redirect to –> www.digitalgrog.com.au – Permanently today 26/12/2012.” phew” (its 2019 now 🙂
I decided I need a Aussie domain to reflect that my blog is essentially Australian covering Australian relevant content, So I decided to get an AU specific domain name changing from the previous .com and decided on digitalgrog.com.au for a name. (explanation digital (self explanatory) grog (aussie slang for alcohol) – Get your digital high on my blog! 🙂
Why I opted for a .com.au instead of .com blog, Click here for detailed comparisons to read more.
I also occasionally review and write about websites, gadgets, technology and the latest app’s which are trending and popular.
If I am not checking out the latest gadgets and splurging some of my precious money on them, then I am possibly researching/comparing them on-line and writing an article or review on them.
I also do a bit bit of investing or trading in the Australian stock market and follow the Australian finance news and updates ( that is – when i am not mucking around with the latest gadgets and electronics). You might find me writing articles for various different blog’s and websites about finance and technology when I can afford the time.
I dabble a bit in Internet Marketing/SEO and Website building using wordpress and so you will find I write articles on these topics as well.
If you want me to write a article, a review for a gadget or a website for you, please contact me via the contact button on the blog (or send me a mail directly – email on profile bio in front page) or then visit me on Google +.

Digitalgrog.com.au is a affiliate partner to most of the Hosting services and some other blog related promotion services that I have listed here on my blog and I use, which means that in addition to using their service, we also receive a commission for referring new customers. To be fair, though, we still use these services even if we weren’t an affiliate. We don’t recommend any particular host just because we’re an affiliate (every hosting company offers a similar affiliate program); we recommend certain Hosting companies because they are the best, most reliable option. Plus, because we’re a partner, these providers offers a special price for Digitalgrog readers. Get your hosting today.
