About Rupert Goodwins

Rupert started off as a nerdy lad expecting to be an electronics engineer, but having tried it for a while discovered that journalism was more fun. He ended up on PC Magazine in the early '90s, before that evolved into ZDNet UK - and Rupert evolved with them into an online journalist.

About

Charles has been in tech publishing since the late 1980s, starting with Reed's Practical Computing, then moving to Ziff-Davis to help launch the UK version of PC Magazine in 1992. ZDNet came looking for a Reviews Editor in 2000, and he's been here ever since.

  • Did I miss something?

    It may have been mentioned, but I don't recall hearing it. Were these two phones any good at being a phone? I mean, like actually talking to someone?

    Poor battery life. I see, battery too small, system too power hungry, I understand the iPhone suffers from this too. Who needs function when phones look this good.

    I have decided (before watching this, but you have confirmed my decision) that my next phone will NOT be Windows based. Ever since my current Windows mobile device crashed on me as someone was trying to ring me. I am now looking around for a replacement, any suggestions?

  • and another thing

    Edition 40 sound quality was a lot better than your earlier offerings. Earlier editions in this series had a few minor problems such as poor positioning of lapel mics, but at least I could hear what you were saying. Well Done.

    It might have taken an 8th of the time to make, but don't let all those wizzy graphics get in the way of the basic message. Can I ask that series 5 goes back to basics..... please?

    And finally, it's good to see that since your promotion, you are still a pub man Rupert and haven't started dragging Charles to the wine bar.
