I’ve contributed three tutorials to this Bookazine aimed at Windows switchers looking to try Ubuntu for the first time. These comprise guides to setting up a gamepad, recording and watching live TV through MythTV, and using an OpenVPN server to secure your web connection. The bookazine costs £9.99 in print, or £6.99 as a digital download and can be ordered here.

The 2016-17 football season is upon us already, and I’m continuing my long association with Birmingham City’s official matchday programme by contributing to its On This Day section. This provides highlights of three games played on the date in years gone by, compiled from old newspaper reports and other material.

The latest issue of Future’s digital-only iPad User Magazine includes my two-page guide to creating and managing build effects and transitions in Keynote.

The latest issue of Future’s magazine for Windows users is on the newsstands now. I contributed the main feature – 50 best apps for Windows 10 – plus there’s an outing for my command-line feature from Maximum PC (sadly this contains the wrong body copy from a previous feature) and another showing for my guide to managing your email with PopTrayU. I also wrote – as per usual – the magazine’s Q&A column, Support Squad.

The August issue of Windows Help & Advice is in the shops now, and I’m afraid I feature rather heavily in it. I wrote both the lead feature, 100 tips and tricks for Windows 10, as well as the secondary feature (originally published in Maximum PC in the US), Make Flawless Backups. I contributed a brand new tutorial on creating and publishing your own eBooks, as well as a guide to backing up your emails. Things are rounded off with my regular four-page Q&A column. If all of that appeals (or at least doesn’t put you off), please click here for more details and to order.
