Requiem for Napster

We gather to mourn the passing of Napster -- or at least mourn its evolution into a different virtual life-form.

Plug it in and it works

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...

Lindows: Windows for losers?

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...

Vote 1: Remote

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.

Scriptless spells disaster

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.

Convince and conquer

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 ...

A digital dilemma

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!

The meeting of like minds

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...

Cleaning up the code

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.

Back to the future

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.

On the money

Why pay a bank or the archetypal middle-man to manage your assets when you can do it yourself?

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

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.

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 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.

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.
