Google Desktop

Now I know having worked for a large company creating software previously that sometimes legacy code remains simply because no […]

Robert Peston on why Vista is evil

Dear Bill Gates Give me back my weekend. I bought a new Windows Vista laptop – and that’s when the trouble began.

I knew there was a reason I hated Microsoft. I used to use my work laptop for mail – Outlook 2000 to be precise. I now use Microsoft Entourage on both my macs, work running OSX and home running Jaguar. You would think that as they are all Microsoft applications [mail applications at that] this […]

You know how…

I said I wanted an iPod? Well it looks like it could pay for itself in no time ;) Using nothing more than one of Apple’s iPod portable music players, a youth in the US stole more than ?400 worth of software! When Apple released the iPod, they were well aware that if the user […]
