Review: Outlook.com Web Mail 2013

Hotmail gets the Metro treatment to become Outlook.com. Microsoft’s web-based email service remains solid, without starting a revolution. Realising that Hotmail was getting long in the tooth, and was hardly a unified experience sitting in the Windows 8 browser, Microsoft is now adopting Outlook as a brand for personal, web-based email services. The accompanying facelift … Continue reading

Review: Terms of Service – Didn’t Read

We reserve the right to enslave your first-born whilst burning you alive inside a wicker effigy after harvesting your organs for transplant surgery. Without anaesthetic. Click here to agree to these Terms of Service. “Terms of Service; Didn’t Read” (short: ToS;DR) is a young project started in June 2012 to help fix the “biggest lie … Continue reading

Review: BeCyPDFMetaEdit Remove Encrypted PDF Passwords

By concensus, we have to give two ‘Razzie’ style awards; worst product website http://www.becyhome.de since GeoCities shut down and worst product name since Nissan Sunny. Being fair, the site is a .de domain in both English and Deutche by a one-man development shop more interested in software than a flashy website. And everything is branded … Continue reading

Review: Dropbox Cloud Storage

The Cloud back-up and storage market is getting crowded with new players offering ever more ludicrous amounts of free space, but we couldn’t run this series without looking at one of the established ‘brand names’; Dropbox is one of the most popular Cloud storage and file sharing programs and has built up quite a following … Continue reading

Review: 10 Annoying things in Windows 7

Not everything in Windows 7 is plain sailing. Sometimes just finding what you want is a task in itself, other times, Windows just won’t get out of the way and let you get on… Naming of Parts Microsoft is getting more tenuous with its naming. Defender was it’s last good name. Now User Account Control … Continue reading

Review: Linux Mint 12

It’s that time already, as Clem and the team gear up to push the next version of Linux Mint through the gate, the rest of us wonder if Mint can maintain it’s momentum in gaining a larger share of the Linux user base. Mint has built a reputation as the alternative to Ubuntu, variously catching … Continue reading

Review: Anonymous

Roland Emmerich (yes, that Roland Emmerich) combines every Shakespearean conspiracy theory into this movie which posits that ‘William Shakespeare’ was the pen-name of one Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford and that Wil Shakespeare of the Rose, Swan and Globe theatres was in fact an illiterate hack actor fronting for the aristocrat. Anonymous wraps up … Continue reading

With the release of Chrome, we have seen Google build a super-fast browser which supports Web standards. With the help of Mozilla Firefox, we … Continue reading

Review: Puppy Linux 5.2.5

Puppy Linux was designed as one of those small, light-weight Linux distributions, intended primarily for lower specification hardware whilst still providing a full suite of applications and utilities for a usable desktop environment. Frugal with resources, it was blindingly quick. Lucid Puppy 5.2.5 is not the latest release, dating from April 2, 2011. The download … Continue reading
