  • Opinion: 95.5% polled want iPhone now

    There's enough iPhone hype out there to drown out news that Paris Hilton was seen pole dancing for Harry Potter. Either Apple has invented the best thing since the iPod or CEO Steve Jobs' famed Reality Distortion Field is set to 11.

  • Opinion: How good is the Apple iPhone's camera?

    You should never buy a mobile because of how good the phone's built-in camera is. But for the price the Apple iPhone should be different.

  • Opinion: Second Fest: Glastonbury without mud

    Well actually there was virtual mud (and portable toilets). But there was no booze, live bands or - I reckon - fun. Second Life and The Guardian this weekend enjoyed their very own music festival. The virtual 'Second Fest'.

  • 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…

    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

  • 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: 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.
