  • Opinion: Dawn raids for Vista

    Having played with Vista for 18 months, we hope PC Advisor can be forgiven for getting excited about the launch of the new operating system. And yet I still can’t help feeling that PC World is getting a little too hot under the collar with its plans to open up at dawn on launch day.

  • Opinion: One in five Windows installs 'is a fake'

    Microsoft has revealed that more than a fifth of all Windows installations have been declared 'non-genuine'. So should we all love WGA now?

  • Opinion: When Porsche comes to shove

    So the chief financial officer at Ashampoo Software in Germany is auctioning his Porsche 911 on eBay to help fund a football stadium in the firm's home town.

  • Opinion: ID theft always pays

    As anybody who has ever been the victim of identity theft knows, the reason it's so common is because it pays. And why does it pay? Because identity thieves rarely go to jail.

    Fed up with the hype surrounding Second Life? Tough. Now you can expect your children to start talking about the potential of multiplayer online games, as CBBC is planning to create a virtual world enabling children to interact within a safe environment.

  • Opinion: Coming soon: the 'wonderbox'

    Technology lovers will agree that one of the nuisances of having several cool gadgets around the house – camera phones, iPods, laptops, set-top boxes and even NAS servers (if they can be deemed ‘cool gadgets’) – is that your content is spread around all over the place.

  • Opinion: London phone numbers prove future wrong

    One thing that annoys me more than persistent nudging is the London telephone number.

  • Opinion: Once a beta, always a beta

    Sticking the word 'beta' on the end of a piece of software's name may seem like a cop-out, but when have you ever bought a program and not had to patch it?

  • Opinion: Is Wi-Fi making people ill?

    Well, no. At least, not if you use such arcane forms of evidence as, er, hard scientific evidence.

  • Opinion: Second Life: the future of human existence?

    Or just the latest MMORPG fad? Let's consider the evidence.

  • Opinion: Secure internet? It'll cost you

    In terms of internet security, the sky isn't falling. It fell a long time ago. And human greed combined with passive indifference means it's only going to get worse. The solution? Build a new web, and charge people extra to join it.

  • Opinion: A sight for poor eyes

    It's no coincidence that employers regularly stump up for us deskbound bunnies to have eye tests. Working in front of a monitor, day-in, day-out, can make your eyes deteriorate – or at least accelerate the process. And some of us didn't have the best eyesight to begin with
