  • Opinion: Another reason to hate mobile phones

    According to reports, the credit card is dead. Soon we'll make all our payments via our mobile phones.

  • Opinion: How to choose your next digital camera

    Choosing and buying a compact digital camera can be a bewildering process. In fact, besides selecting a hot beverage from one of those fancy high street coffee shops, I can't think of a more decision-heavy purchase.

  • Opinion: Yahoo strikes the right note (and lyrics)

    Yahoo has teamed up with Gracenote, a provider of CD and digital track identification services, to publish the correct lyrics to hundreds of thousands of songs. And not before time.

  • Opinion: Cybercrime and (no) punishment

    What would you do if you were the victim of internet crime? Law-enforcement agencies will tell you that the first course of action is to visit your local police station – where you’re likely to be greeted by an officer with no tech knowledge and no inclination to follow up a complaint against a cybercriminal.

  • Opinion: Wikipedia version for mobile phones

    A mobile version of Wikipedia was launched in Japan yesterday. The new service, launched by Japanese firm NTT Resonant, enables users to view the online encyclopaedia on their phones.

  • Opinion: No cancer risk from Wi-Fi

    Hey, teacher! Leave our kit alone!

  • Opinion: HDTV should mean broadband for all

    You may not be as HD (high-definition) ready as you think you are, according to ITV chief Michael Grade. He's concerned that merely buying an HDTV won't be enough, and that in order to enjoy HDTV we'll all have to shell out for an expensive cable TV subscription.

  • Opinion: Adobe's PhotoShop CS3 incompatibility battle

    Adobe recently announced that it wouldn't release Vista-compatible updates to current versions of many of its products. It may hope to increase revenue by forcing Vista users with older versions of Photoshop to upgrade, but I'm not convinced.

  • Opinion: Apple TV: too simple by half

    As someone who's used PCs for over a decade, it's in my blood to hate anything that emanates from the slick-and-glitzy edifice otherwise known as Apple HQ.

  • Opinion: Woolworth's joins Tesco in the supermarket suite

    Can Woolworths' software range attract cost-conscious buyers away from expensive Microsoft products?

  • Opinion: UK: the poor cousin, part II - PlayStation 3

    So Microsoft doesn't think the UK is worth Windowsmarketplace.com,, but that is as nothing compared to Sony's shoddy behaviour over the PlayStation 3 console.

  • Opinion: UK: Microsoft and Sony's poor cousin

    We pay more for Vista and the PS3, and we can't use Windows Marketplace. It's time we were put on an equal footing with the US

  • Opinion: Blaming video games for violence makes me… violent

    It had to happen. No sooner had the horror of this week's campus shooting in Virgina sunk in, than 'experts', media whores and rent-a-quotes everywhere jumped gleefully aboard the bandwagon and blamed the shootings on the use of violent computer games. Bah.

  • Opinion: Apple TV vs Apple iPhone, part II

    Will Apple TV be a big success for Apple, or does the company need its iPhone mobile phone to be as big as the iPod?

  • Opinion: Apple TV: bigger than the iPhone?

    Apple has long dominated the digital-audio market and now it's set its sights on video. But can it really expect another huge success with Apple TV?

  • Opinion: Google's Gphone: gPhone vs iPhone?

    Some say Google wants to make something similar to Apple's iPhone, aptly named the gPhone. But almost everyone wants to make something similar to the iPhone, and Google would be entering a crowded copycat business. While Apple jumped into the business with no experience, it already made hardware and needed to defend its music-player business as those functions moved to mobile phones.

  • Opinion: Google's Gphone: fact or fiction?

    Search-engine and advertising giant Google is reportedly planning to launch an iPhone killer. I question the logic of doing so.

  • Opinion: Do we need chip-and-pin for online banking?

    Barclay's today announced that it's to send out handheld chip-and-pin devices to some of its online bank account holders. At first glance this 100 percent a good thing, but I'm sceptical. And I'll tell you for why.
