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.

  • viterbi? kebab?? whearrr??

    I love these brilliant dialogues, but have one teeny grumblette. Being old and doddery, I find it hard to understand the chaps all the time. They mumble and slur and jabber occasionally, like all good enthusiastic and intelligent people; so... more enunciation and less Bishop's Finger please :o)
