Default Re: 'Imperial Culture' (non-canonista)

Impernet: regular periodical of insights from Imperial personal on tactics and fieldcraft. Other states like Caledonia, Darian, Sword Worlds, etc have similar institutions for the same purpose.

Personal Datacaster: This is the personal version of the naval variety datacaster used by light vessels. It has two basic forms, the civilian variety which is widely available on the open or at least the black market and used for cyberdefence. There is also the military grade variety used by soldiers and marines. This is a purpose built "fighting" computer used at it's most benign to protect one's own electronics but sometimes for the more nefarious forms of Black Hat hacking. As a footnote, any device with internet access can be used as an improvised data caster but professionals prefer a purpose built version.
