Apacer AU840 MP3 Player, Driving Licence Success, Palm Treo 500
April 22nd, 2008

The CD offered to install drivers for Windows 98 or something called a setup utility that appeared in some garbled foreign language, therefore unusable. Then we opened Windows Media Player to try and use the inbuilt sync but the software didn’t recognise the player.

Sony Ericsoon P1i, Penny Adams Brain Trainer, Microsoft Office for Mac 8
April 8th, 2008

And in the most contentious change, all Visual Basic macro support has gone, meaning none of the macros you’ve spent the last four years perfecting work any more. You can use Applescript to do the same things (and indeed, have always been able to) but if you don’t know how to program it, tough.

Omnipage Pro 16
April 12th, 2008

So what does OmniPage Pro 16 do that’s worth shelling out as much as it costs for a low-spec PC? Publisher Nuance claims it’s 46 percent faster than the previous version, and we clocked a full A4 page of text at around 20 seconds. If you convert so many documents with OCR that you can’t afford to wait even that long you’re better off paying an expensive software developer to build a proprietary system for you.

Windows Vista
February 27th, 2007

The installer informed us it may take ‘several hours’, and while the install automatic install process did take an hour, the various manual steps indeed stretched the whole process out to about three hours total.
