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.

  • Tendency to gabble

    Really useful stuff, but these two are lacking a crucial feature that most demonstrators and professional speakers are aware of: intelligibility.
    I have noticed from this and previous demos that they talk just that bit too quickly and often tend to swallow the ends of their words - sometimes not fully pronouncing all the syllables - just as they come to a crucial bit of information.
    Please give this video a test run in front of some people who are unfamiliar with the topic and check whether they have heard every word.
    Entertaining? Yes. Informative? Yes. Could do with being delivered a little bit more slowly? Yes. It is as if they are talking to each other instead of to us, their audience.

    PS BTW guys I am a bit concerned that you might be going over the recommended government units allowance for alcohol!! Is it true that you both dry out between shows?? Don't forget it is inadvisable to save up your units for a big binge session...
