Golf tech is big business now, and there’s no shortage of gadgets out there to help you own the course, but unlike the gimmicks of yesteryear, these new products actually have a chance of benefiting your game.

The latest GPS gadgets are some of the best around, enabling you to get an accurate distance to the green, and make sure you pick the right club for the job.

Best antivirus 2014: Free and paid downloads 2014

If you're looking for the best free antivirus software to download, or paid-for suites, to keep your devices malware-free, you're in luck.

As technology has evolved, so have the man-made threats to it. The first computer viruses spread via floppy discs, and weren't exactly harmful – now, we're connected to worldwide networks 24/7, making the potential impact of infection much more serious.

Mobile malware protection, safeguarding the little computer you keep in your pocket or bag, is something of a must. You can't close your eyes, stick your fingers in your ears, and pretend that mobile malware doesn't exist. There are so many people hunting for your personal information that installing the best mobile antivirus package is essential whatever your platform.

iOS users might think they're safe; traditionally there's been a notion out there that iOS is impervious to viruses. But that's not true. The longer the OS hangs around, the more security flaws are discovered – and if you're tied to an older version because Apple is no longer updating the operating system on your ageing phone, you absolutely need an iOS security app to keep your handset safe from rampaging hackers.

It goes without saying that the open nature of Android – coupled with its Wild West app management style – means it's the most vulnerable platform of all. Well, apart form the Windows PC. Ironically, Windows Phone 8 is the safest platform of all; its rigid sandboxing structure means that antivirus apps can't actually work, so we've not covered any here because they simply don't exist.

If you, like us, are massive app fanatics, you best check out our best iPhone apps 2013: free and paid apps for iPhonebest Android apps 2013: free and paid apps for Android and best Windows apps ever features.

Best DAC to buy 2014

Buying the best DAC enables you to get the best performance from your digital music and turn lifeless MP3s into awesome audio.

The humble DAC (aka Digital Analogue Converter) has become the latest must-have upgrade for your ears. Designed to maximise the sonic performance of any two channel source, be it computer, smartphone or TV box, DACS come in a variety of flavours and form factors.

At their simplest, they can be used to transform the audio output of a laptop or PC, and often sport an integrated headphone amplifier. Connected by USB, they can either route your files directly to a standalone stereo system, or sit on a desk, waiting for you to plug in your preferred headphones. 

One convenient variant is the Bluetooth DAC. This typically connects directly to a hi-fi system and enables you to wirelessly stream music files and Internet services from your mobile to the sound system.

Hi-fi component-style DACs tend to be rather more expensive but offer a wider variety of inputs (coaxial, optical, USB, AES/EBU) as well as an asynchronous mode to reduce jitter and such like. Here improved audio fidelity is the object of the exercise. Performance gains can be massive, and prices suitably stratospheric. So what type of DAC will suit you best? We’ve rounded-up ten of the best to help you decide.

If you're upgrading your audio set up, make sure you check out our round-ups of the best in-ear headphones, best Airplay speakers or best headphones under £100.
