In a time when everybody suddenly seems to be looking to Apple for the next exciting piece of new technology,I’m forced to look back and wonder when everything all of a sudden started to go ‘right’ for them.

Living with Windows 7

Last week I started a list of my most hated computing myths and began setting the record straight. Unfortunately there were simply too many of them to fit into a 600 word article so we’re back again this week to hopefully complete the list.
