  • Opinion: Office 2010: Is this the best Microsoft can do?

    From what's been reported so far, I don't see much to like about Office 2010. The discussion thus far has lacked a single 'killer feature' that makes me want to shell out a few hundred quid for an Office that seems only fractionally better than what I'm already using.

  • Opinion: Explaining the UK's drunken porno office party

    So more than one in three UK office workers surf for porn at work, it seems. (And PC Advisor's own research suggests a similar proportion of users intend to stick with Windows XP. Is there a correlation between operating system luddites and workplace willy worriers? I think we should be told.)

    They're cheaper, greener, and capable enough for everyday business work - if you can get XP Pro on them

  • Opinion: Printer makers: give us cheap, high-quality prints

    It was long a sacred truth among printer manufacturers: to part punter and cash, slash cost of hardware, stick impressive (and unrealistic) print speeds on box, recoup cost in toner and paper. Rub hands, emit low chuckle, back away slowly until reaching bank.
