Double (no) trouble

Despite Microsoft's latest attempts to preach to the converted, it's clear that their new OS (operating system) costs a lot more than its predecessor.

Linksys CIT200

VoIP (voice over IP) is a neat way of making free or low-cost calls via your PC. It has finally come into its own, having been floating around for a handful of years waiting for both decent-speed broadband and us punters to catch on to its charms.

The complete guide to YouTube

Rock-solid broadband connections and inexpensive digital camcorders make sharing your movie-making efforts an affordable pastime. At a pinch you can even use a digital camera that can record video clips, as well as stills.

Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.0

Confusion reigns about Acrobat. Many people mistakenly believe that 'Acrobat' refers to the free PDF (portable document format) reader that's supplied with many applications. In fact, that product is known simply as Adobe Reader. It's easy to see how...

Dance hall days

Back in the dim and distant past, one of the first things I used the family Commodore 64 for was creating a database cataloguing all my music -- that and playing Horace Goes Skiing, of course. It wasn't just vinyl singles, LPs and CDs, either. Having...

How to: Windows: Keeping up appearances

My first experience of Windows was on a hulking 386 laptop, back in the days when my Dad foolishly thought 'portable' meant just that. Windows was still little more than a glorified DOS shell which had to be loaded up on 3.5in disks.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
