Issue number 90 of Computer active is in the shops on Thursdays 26 July 2001 and as usual is up to a very high standard.
The news desk covers such items as Britain backs business in spam, Microsofts game of tags ( bit of a control freak old Bill LOL) and ended by some interesting Internet news on Comic relief.
They also do an excellent feature on digital pictures and how to improve them ( as if we ever need to improve them LOL) they also review so of the markets leading image editing software at various prices.
Reviews of hard ware this month includes Sony Vaio LX1 a £2.499 laptop (wow) Hitachi HN 1300-C700 a more modest laptop only £1.407. Reviewed to is a palm M505 £399 and finally a Lexmark Z43 printer £79 ( I use an older model of this and find it great allow the cartridges are quite pricey £32 ....
There is also 2 PC Reviewed a Mesh Matrix 1400 DDR VFM for a mere £1880 ( of which they recommend to buy ) and a much cheaper Polar Proton 800 for £999
Other features Cyber shopping, and some money saving advise on Batteries ( we all waste a lot on them ... Don't we ). MP3 software reviews product they look at are Sonique, Winamp, Musicmatch Jukebox and Windows media..guess which gets the best review?
