    Default August PC world

    Am I losing the plot?

    Main Cover Item story about HDTV's and Blu-ray players..

    I thought it was getting bad enough when they started reviewing cellphones!

    Can we have item's about computers please..?

    Even though its called PCworld its more of a "Technology" based mag rather than computer based.

    I think there's only so much original content on computers you can rite about these days. I'm quite happy to see a branch into other technology areas especially as they killed of FFWD

    Computers! maybe so paulw but there is certainly a lot of software updates and new software programs are being invented all the time. I have told quite a few of my elderly new computer purchaser's about types of software they can buy for their PC's and they can do this and that with it. They can't believe what is out there.

    Personally I don't mind the HDTV articles (I find them interesting ), however I do think the magazine has decreased in quality somewhat over the past 12 months . Hopefully the team can fix it and get it back up to the excellent standard it used to be .

    I used to get PCW and PCAuthority but cancelled PCW over a year ago for the reasons mentioned above. PCAuthority isn't bad but it would be better for Aussies.

    I'm still subscibing, and reasonably happy to. Could do with less of the smart/cell phone/TV stuff though, and more reviews/tests on PC bits and pieces.
    I must admit with all the non-computer stuff in it, it's not taking very long to read.
