AI is clearly the big news topic for 2023… almost replacing the NBN as our soup du jour, in fact. This week we’ve seen everything from Adobe’s we-promise-our-art-generator-isn’t-ripping-off-artists Firefly app to ChatGPT leaking text prompts randomly to AI apps to let people hear and see better. It’s a really wild ride, in other words.

Meanwhile, we’ve grabbed notable global traveller Angus Kidman from Finder to talk through the roaming options open to you.

We talk through the tips and tricks to make the most of your trip — and keep your wallet safe.
