    Movie - Salmon fishing in the Yemen. Yeah, it makes both lists.

    Concert/Show - ... Hmm.

    Gadget - Probably shouldn't say.

    Game - Simpsons Tapped Out. Hated it. Reviewed it.

    Catch Phrase - "Dang, yo!"

    TV Show - I saw no bad TV. I only watch carefully preselected DVD.

    Computers are like Air Conditioners, they stop working when you open Windows.

    Agree with that used to, but most of the mags have the same articles anyway. Buy an Aust mag, and a few months later the same article comes out in a NZ mag.-- Now that's original

    That's actually not possible. We're the only NZ computer mag, aside from Netguide (which I don't count, for reasons) and that's been the case since Tone closed last year. Neither Tone nor we have taken content from Australian Mags in the two years I've been here - the aussie PC World went online only nearly five years ago (my old mag, PC Authority, took the subscribers when they closed).

    You get the Aussie mags imported (PC Authority, PC User, APC, Game Informer), but none of them have a Kiwi version. We're it for consumer tech mags.

    We use US editorial features and how-tos, mostly because we're such a tiny team that we have to. We do all our product testing here and write as many local stories as we're able. We're a team of three people, there's only so much we can do.

    I'll agree that there tend to be a lot of similar articles, but we go out of our way to try not to copy anyone else. Sometimes, timing means it's needed - articles about Windows 8 around launch, etc.

    The only reason I wouldn't say what the worst gadget of the year for me was, is that I put my opinions right there in PC World - you can check through our list to find it.Any gadget I reviewed well, but hated personally is nobody's business but mine, and could be used by a manufacturer as evidence of bias should they have a beef with me later. I don't need the hassle. Want my personal opinion? Meet me at Galbraith's on a thursday night, buy me a craft beer, and I'll tell you.

    I could do that if you like, I will be easy to pick out, out of the crowd, I will be the one that walks around with a walk like I am looking forward to my next physiotherapist session, and when asked if I would like a beer?, I reply with a secret code "have you got any vintage beer less than $5 a glass"

    By the way; that room on the right as you walk in the door looks a bit untidy,

    Roll on 2013 when I can walk around Tamaki drive again.
    In public area, I use a handkerchief so YOU dont get hit with my gems when I cough and sneeze near you, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO US?
