  • Opinion: Why I love - and hate - the iPhone

    Well, I've done it. I finally got my hands on Apple's iPhone last Friday night. And in the short time I've had it, I've found some features that may have been missed so far. So if you're trying to decide whether to buy one, read on…

  • Opinion: Sexist PlayStation advert is a fake

    A widely criticised advert for Sony's PlayStation 2, in which the tagline advised male gamers to buy the PS2 console "because your girlfriend bores you shitless", is a fake, according to the company.

  • Opinion: Websense launches SMB web filtering

    Websense has announced a version of its web-filtering product and bandwidth-management gateway product for small-to-midsize businesses.

  • Opinion: Apple employees get 20,000 free iPhones

    I'm honour bound to point out that I can drink as much tea and coffee as I like but, as an employee of the mighty PC Advisor, I'm currently looking toward the Apple store and feeling pretty green. Each of Apple's 20,000 workers is to be given a free iPhone. Lucky sods.

  • Opinion: Celebrating iPhone's 15-year anniversary

  • Opinion: Dispelling SMB misconceptions

    Service providers are getting very interested in pitching to small-to-midsize businesses. That's a great idea - only partly because I run one. SMBs are often where the action is - we spearhead a surprising amount of technology innovation. So it's cool that carriers are marketing to us.

  • Opinion: iPhone swappers seek cigarettes, beer & cash

    How inconsiderate of Apple to launch the iPhone on June 29 – a Friday. Apple is unlikely to have enough iPhones to meet demand on the opening weekend, and so by releasing the handset on a work day, the company is surely posing a few headaches for those who can’t get a day off.

  • Opinion: Colour laser printer buying advice

    Of the many hundreds, perhaps thousands, of digital photos most of us take in a typical year, an average of just 25 graduate from the camera or PC and see the light of day as prints. While the world has quickly embraced the idea of taking digital snaps, turning them into prints has yet to prove anywhere near as popular.

  • Opinion: Dell: sun, sea and a fashion parade of, er, PCs

    Apparently it's been raining in Britain. Well I wouldn't know as I'm in Spain. But beyond the occasional blast of hot air I'm not entirely sure how the weather's doing here in Marbella. No, I've spent the day looking at Dell's new consumer PCs.

  • Opinion: Microsoft building Live Parking 1.0

    Apple's redefining the mobile phone and Google's tossing up $600m data centres like they're Starbucks franchises, but up in Redmond, they're building a parking garage.

  • Opinion: Gamers are fat, says 23st non-gamer

    Portly US youngsters need to chuck out their video games and watch what they eat, according to basketball legend and 7ft man-mountain Shaquille O'Neal.

  • Opinion: Space Agency opens Mars mission to public

  • Opinion: Is Apple the King of rip-off Britain?

    Editing an Apple MacBook Pro review recently (yes, we do edit them) I was shocked by the price differential between the US and the UK. For the same specification of 17in Apple MacBook Pro, UK users are paying a lot more money.

  • Opinion: Samsung's U3 is a low maintenance iPod

    iTunes, Windows Media and other music-management software may appeal to some, but I'm an old-fashioned guy - give me that old drag-and-drop any day.

  • Opinion: Wireless USB coming next month?

    Could it be true? A representative of chipmaker Alereon told me recently that products using the long-awaited, much-delayed, oft-embattled Wireless USB standard will be released next month. And I may be a sucker, but I believe him.
