  • Opinion: Digital camera 'decline' nonsense

    Industry analysts at IDC (part of the same group as PC Advisor) are predicting that digital camera shipments will fall in 2011. Corporate brother though it is, I must disagree with its preposterous suggestion that the market is "saturated". Haven't you heard of China?

    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: 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.

    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

    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?
