MY BEST TECH: Robert Evans

Patrick Stafford /

Robert Evans is the chief executive of information management group Velrada, which focuses mainly on the mining sector. Evans says his favourite piece of tech is the Apple TV – and another that might not be as technical.

“The Apple TV is probably my favourite, it’s a little black widget that just works. Everything is all replicated so there is no stuffing around, if you’ve watched half a movie on the Apple TV you send it to the iPad and there’s no fuss.”

“The attention to detail and software integration is amazing. The whole customer service experience of buying the thing was amazing as well.”

“I’ve also been reading the Steve Jobs biography, which isn’t a piece of technology, but still wonderful. It’s a wonderful appraisal of him and gives a good background on the product.”
