  • Opinion: Do you care about Cebit?

    It’s five years since I’ve been to Cebit, but even from the comfort of the office it’s been clear the knives have been out for the world’s largest IT trade show. I’m off to Hannover this evening and it’ll be interesting to see how the exhibition has changed – in 2001 it was attracting 800,000 visitors, this time around organisers are expecting half that.

  • Opinion: Email: to save or not to save?

    That is the question. Well, it's a question. And the answer is a rather large: TO SAVE, DUMMY.

  • Opinion: Developer backtracks on Wii slagging

    Games developer Chris Hecker has retracted statements he made last week at the Game Developer Conference when he called Nintendo’s Wii “a piece of s**t”.

  • Opinion: Have a brain cell? Win a laptop

    I’m not usually one to take an interest when I walk past people handing out competition leaflets, but the lady at Waterloo Station this morning had a Sony Vaio cap on, and I’m in need of a new laptop. And when I saw the competition’s question, I thought my luck was in:

  • Opinion: 'Bill Gates for president' campaign flops

    There will be no West Coast White House in Redmond, no Air Force One with a Windows-based navigation system, no vice president Dilbert.

  • Opinion: Apple's charity nano in the Red

    Is Apple's iPod nano Red Special Edition really the answer to world poverty? I doubt it, says the BBC. "Shopping and donating are different" says Robert Peston in his BBC blog today.

  • Opinion: Ultimate satnav buying guide

    Team PC Advisor took to the streets and tried to get lost. We then asked the very latest GPS-equipped satellite navigation kit to help us back on the straight and narrow.

  • Opinion: Cat power

    Researchers have turned to the animal kingdom in an attempt to 'fox' those pesky internet bots.

  • Opinion: Stressed out by the Blackberry

    I'm a fan of being connected. Obviously. And I bought a Palm Treo 650 years ago so I could stay up on my work email when I'm away from my computer. But I've found that constant access to my email stresses me out. Do I really want to know there's a problem with a project when I'm about to enjoy a movie? Is there some reason I can't get that email in the morning?

  • Opinion: Vista's £90-off loophole will prove irrelevant

    Microsoft concedes that a loophole allows anyone to install an upgrade version of Vista, but could you take advantage? More to the point - should you? Well, not if you want to stay on the right side of Microsoft. And there's probably very little benefit in it for you anyway.

  • Opinion: Vista laptops under the spotlight

    Not all laptops are created equal. And, just as surely, not all laptops are created for the same purpose. Think carefully about how you'll be using your new machine before you buy. We've got reviews of five leading Vista-equipped laptops, and a few hints on what you might (and might not) be looking for.

  • Opinion: Saving money on iTunes

    Contrary to Matt Egan’s claims that iTunes is economically unviable for music fans, I’d say that it actually saves me money. Yes, I do pay 79p for a single track when I could get 14 songs on a CD for £7.99, but much of the time I don’t want the fillers that are dumped on me by a full album.

  • Opinion: DRM-free music? I'm with Steve Jobs

    There's probably more than a touch of hyperbole in Steve Jobs' assertion that Apple would embrace DRM-free iTunes 'wholeheartedly', but he's spot on when he says that music companies currently sell 90 percent of their wares without digital rights management. And I buy 100 percent of my music that way.

  • Opinion: The great PS3 pre-order scandal

    Warnings before reading: 1) This story is two days old; 2) This story was nicked from another website; 3) Sony 'fanboys' will find that steam comes out of their ears if they read this story. But it's a good 'un, so here goes anyway.
