I have to agree with Ulrich. There's nothing there to click on, no live link.

Four great reasons why email will never, ever die

1 comments, most recent: Sam Chapman said on : "

The fact is, that email delivers content in a way that no other system since it, has been able to surpass. things like Farcebook and it's ilk, was developed to fill about the only niche, that email generally doesn't encompass quite as effectively. If one wants to quickly pass on inconsequential prattle and images, email is not quite as seamless to use.
Until someone manages to come up with an app which is quicker, more intuitive and seamless, which at the same time, also capable of delivering via it, an even broader range of business orientated data-types than e-mail is capable of, it will continue to rule the roost.

Windows 8 'Threshold' update will be Windows 9

287 comments, most recent: Privat Privat said on : "

speed isnt a factor anymore, and higher resolution is the problem were faceing as i explained above :X higher resolution = font, images, ect will be compressed to a smaller area and People wont be able to see all the details.. Things needs to become bigger.. and by makeing larger icons, images ect, Your only makeing the problem bigger later on.. instead of makeing a universal solution by jumping straight to VECTOR GRAPHICS :x
Its not like its News for Microsoft, as they have some in some of their programs such as Office (not ribbon).


Intel amps up desktop performance with its first 8-core PC chip

4 comments, most recent: Matt Egan said on : "

So, to be clear, on an unrelated story you criticised us for not covering this subject. And then on this story (which came out on the same day as the news itself came out of NDA), you criticise us for being late, *and* for covering other things on other pages. I think perhaps it is time for you to take a break. And perhaps to understand that the day you read a story is not necessarily the day that story is published.


Intel amps up desktop performance with its first 8-core PC chip

At last somebody woke up in PC Advisor and had time to cover some proper PC news. Few days late, but still. Quite refreshing to see some PC related new in a sea of smartphone and tablet related spam.
Good job.

Syncables 360 Premium review

9 comments, most recent: GuyNorthrup said on 27 July 2010: "To me, syncing multiple computers in a network automatically is the core benefit of using Syncables360. Having valuable files & spreadsheets (emails too actually) always in sync on more than 1 computer provides an additional layer of security back up too. Even though I trust this more than using the limited storage space in the cloud, I view it is a secondary feature. Inexpensive, fun, & reliable."

Microsoft Security Essentials review

3 comments, most recent: exbrum said on 11 July 2010: "If I could get the auto update function to work then I would have been quite happy to stay with this, I read a couple of good reviews on two magazine sites, however decided to uninstall it and go for another free anti virus programme. The overall layout of the interface is very nice and well thought out."

Microsoft Office 2010 review

Serif WebPlus X2 review

0 comments, most recent: The B said on 22 May 2010: "There are two questions I would ask before buying this: Is it better than Microsoft? And how much better? Yes - it is, in my opinion, better than Microsoft. And it's a lot better: it's so easy to create professional publications. Some things to be improved on, but all in all a very good program."
