John O'Sullivan and his CSIRO team developed wi-fi in 1992. Wi-fi is a way of getting broadband internet to a device using wireless transmitters and radio signals. Once a transmitter receives data from the internet, it converts that data into a radio signal that can be received and read by wi-fi enabled devices. Information is then exchanged between the transmitter and the device.

In the mid 20th century, the 'computer' was a behemoth - a 2-tonne machine that sat in research labs and university tech centers, inaccessible to the public. But not for long. In the 1980s, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs broke out in a heated battle to bring the computer to the masses. The race is one to see who will run the world's personal computers-a battle in which Jobs' ego may get the best of him.
