ELEANOR HALL: Welcome to Techtopia, our segment on the technologies set to disrupt our future and some of the unexpected questions we may need to ask about them.
Today a technology we're all familiar with: our phone. It has gone from staid, home-based handset to wearable message conveyor, music player, direction giver and so much more.
But how familiar are we with what our smart phones know about us and what are they doing with that information?
Joining me in Sydney, as he does every week for Techtopia, is entrepreneur and technology author Steve Sammartino.
Also here in our Sydney studio, is Dr Katina Michael, a Professor at the School of Computing and Information Technology at the University of Wollongong, who is also on the board of the Australian Privacy Foundation.
