If you thought 1GB of memory was ample for the average personal computer, you can forget it. Now 2GB is the minimum that users should be aiming at.
Barker Bites Back
A look at some newsy stuff and interesting bits as well as those hopefully amusing byways of technology.
I have been a computer journalist for most of my working life although I did start in the wonderful world of accountancy. I have been editor of Compting magazine in London and prior to that held a number of editing jobs, including time spend at the late, lamented DEC Computing and was at one time London editor for Byte magazine. Outside of work, my main interests are travelling, football and baseball. I lived for some years in Boston, Mass, and became an incurable Boston Red Sox fan as a result. I have no particular qualifications for being a journalist other than a university degree and a lifelong curiosity about people.
I need a new computer and it is causing some issues for me. The issue is not over which one I should buy - I am nowhere near that stage yet.
