Netobjects nPower 1.0
- Simple and fairly easy to use
- Editing functions limited, not as effective as other options
Users of Fusion will find it appealing, but everyone else should pass.
Price$ 95.95 (AUD)
In recent years web-development software makers have recognised that a lot of software is just too complex when it comes to updating content - the very task that will take up most time and effort once a site is up and running. The trend towards simplifying online workflow was started by Macromedia's Contribute, but NetObjects has seen the value of providing a similar package to support its main web designer, Fusion.
nPower is intended for the majority of users who wish to add text and images to a site as easily as possible. Once a version of a site has been created in Fusion that is compatible with nPower, users of the latter can open it online and quickly modify images, text, links and tables. This process is very simple and fairly easy to use, which is great news to those who are easily confused by such programs.
The editing capabilities of nPower are fairly limited, but this is intentional. Too much detail simply confuses many people, creating a bottleneck for sites where modifications have to wait until an expert can intervene. In this case, the program can be used by those with little to no previous experience in the field.
Once a site is retrieved, pages can be added or moved, and the style of pages modified using the SiteStyle dialog. Actually, this is probably one feature that could be a little dangerous in an application such as this one. While the decision to simplify adding content is one that nearly every web manager would welcome, enabling inexperienced users to change the look and feel of a site could be trickier - even if it is a managed process. The decision to release nPower is a smart one on the part of NetObjects and the good news for them is its only real competitor is Macromedia Contribute; which is more than double the price of nPower. To be honest, though, it is not as effective as that program and you really do get what you pay for in this case. We think it will appeal only to organisations that already use Fusion, so the rest of you should look elsewhere.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
