Computer Shopper

WELCOME PAGE

Letters • If music tracks had a limit of three minutes, as proposed by Mel Croucher, we might never have heard Stairway to Heaven. One reader thinks that’s a bad thing

Croucher’s last stand • With our personal data under constant threat and companies finding ever more intrusive ways of selling us stuff, Mel Croucher issues a final rallying cry to the masses

UNDER DEVELOPMENT Questionable methods • David Robinson despairs of some of his clients’ ideas. And to make matters worse, he’s also started to question the motive behind some of these terrible schemes

MACBITER Wasting away • After a lifetime spent hunched over his computer, a morose MacBiter belatedly realises that all his efforts have amounted to diddly-squat

Don’t hack back • If you’ve been the victim of a cyberattack you might feel like exacting revenge on the perpetrators, but it wouldn’t be a wise move – even if it may soon be legal

Running up that hill • Poor mobile phone reception? There’s an app for that. But Kay Ewbank prefers to keep fit by climbing the nearest hill and waving her phone in the air to get a decent signal

RANTS & RAVES • The much-loved feature where our writers let off steam and (occasionally) found something to wax lyrical about. Here are some of our favourites

In the beginning… • In an article written to celebrate Shopper’s 20th anniversary in 2008, Felix Dennis recounted how he launched the biggest and best tech magazine the UK has ever seen

SO LONG SHOPPER THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES • Computer Shopper writers past and present reminisce on the origins and evolution of Shopper, and how they came to be on the magazine in the first place
