We gather to mourn the passing of Napster -- or at least mourn its evolution into a different virtual life-form.
If a network is a neighborhood, it's not a friendly one. Devices don't talk to one another, let alone acknowledge the others exist. They require all kinds of help (from us) to settle in and start working. Wouldn't it be great if devices come into the...
There's been a lot of press lately about Lindows, a new operating system that purports to run both Linux and Windows applications. Much of the press ink is devoted to a lawsuit from Microsoft Corp. alleging trademark infringement. When will Microsoft...

If death, taxes and Microsoft profits are certainties, then uncertainty can be defined by trying to pick a federal election date. Maybe by the time you read this.
I had been under the impression that most IDE drives automatically remap data as bad sectors develop. Unfortunately, SMART is only smart about monitoring and reporting problems.
What is happening now in the PC sector is the latest incarnation of that rolling tide of change.
Wake up, open source community. The battle is not for the desktop; it is not for the server; it is not for the operating system; it is not for the development environment; it is not about the GNU General Public Licence (GPL) vs. Microsoft's business ...
Back in 1996, I reviewed the brand-new computer game, Tomb Raider, which featured the curvaceous Lara Croft as the chief gun-toter.
Digital photography is still trying to make the leap from being a professional pastime to a consumer must-have like its film cousin. A sure-fire way to know it has caught on is when your mum is toting a digital camera at the next family gathering!
My least favourite attempts at community building are those wretched online surveys. It seems every commercial Web site has the mandatory row of radio buttons asking for your opinion on the vacuous topic of the day, seemingly in an attempt to get you...
I find it amusing that Windows is often called the server platform with the most applications, simply because it has traditionally been the platform with the most desktop applications.
Deciding when to move on a new technology requires an IT user to play Goldilocks to technology's three bears.
It really is hard to believe how quickly things change in IT. Unless you see it in black and white, it can be quite hard to fathom the distances travelled, yet we take them in our stride every day.
Why pay a bank or the archetypal middle-man to manage your assets when you can do it yourself?
A new tide of demand for high-performance computer equipment is sweeping the world, as eSports becomes a major form of entertainment and spectator activity. With that, the technology supporting eSports is maturing rapidly.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
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.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
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!
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.
