The smartphone world might be dominated by Apple and Google devices, but Microsoft are making great progress with their Windows Phone platform. I check out the Nokia Lumia 620.
“My computer is secure. It’s a Mac.”
Microsoft Office hasn’t been around forever, or even quite as long as the Macintosh, but it has been around for a long, long time.

This year’s WWDC event saw some great news for iPhone 4s owners.
Apple might be producing larger and larger iPhones, but some people still hanker after a mini handset.
Your MacBook or MacBook Pro probably came with one hard drive and, in most instances, a built-in optical drive that you rarely use. The OWC Data Doubler lets you install a second hard drive in place of that SuperDrive, and OWC’s SuperSlim enclosure gives your removed optical drive a new home.
