Three of my previously published guides have now been placed online at the TechRadar website. They are:
My latest contributions to Future’s best-selling Mac title can now be viewed in the May 2016 issue. I wrote a group test comparing six smart security cameras, plus contributed a full-page review of Synology’s DiskStation 216+ network hard drive and half-page review of Mountain Duck 1.1. Click here for more details and to order.
The latest issue of Future’s best-selling magazine for Linux enthusiasts is on sale now, and features my ongoing series on learning how to use the Terminal (this issue, navigating your file system and simple file management from the command line). There’s also a single-page review of FlexiHub 2.2, a service for connecting USB devices remotely. Click here for more details and to order.
My article on how to build a Raspberry Pi Zero-powered AirPlay receiver, published in issue 298 of MacFormat, is now available to read online at the TechRadar website. An expanded version will also be published in an upcoming issue of Linux Format – more details on that when it’s published.
The May 2016 issue of Windows Help & Advice is on the shelves now, and features a bumper crop of work from yours truly. I’ve updated the lead article on spring-cleaning your PC, plus contributed two brand new tutorials on getting photos from your phone to your PC and managing them using Adobe Bridge.
There’s also my regular four-page Support Squad column answering reader questions, while two of my previously published tutorials get new airings, one on recording your family history, and the other on making a fail-safe backup with Macrium Reflect Free. Enjoy.
Live-Smart has published my painstakingly written guide to deciphering smart home network protocols and standards. The sad fact is, there’s no single standard linking devices together, and this guide attempts to help explain what everything means and how to discover which devices work with which. Please click here to read it.
Three of my tutorials feature in the latest issue of Linux Format: the first of a new series examining basic Terminal use, plus in-depth guides to installing Ubuntu on a hybrid Windows tablet device, and building your own media streaming stick using the Pi Zero and OpenELEC.
Visit the magazine website for full details – subscribers can also access these and all my previously published tutorials in PDF format through the magazine’s PDF archive. The latter article has also been published online at TechRadar.
The latest issue of Future’s bestselling Mac magazine has hit the newsstands, and features my four-page project on building an AirPlay receiver using a Raspberry Pi Zero and PiDAC-Zero add-on for under £50.
It’s not often I get ridiculously over-excited about stuff I write, but this is the exception. My Pi Zero-powered music box has taken pride of place in my home stereo setup, and is used on a daily basis to deliver superb sounding music to my office.
I have two brand new tutorials appearing in the latest issue of Future’s digital-only magazine for iPad users. The first is a guide to creating your own ebooks, and the second looks at how to organise notes and manage projects using the powerful Outline+ tool.
The magazine is exclusively available through the iOS app store – individual issues cost £2.99, but you can set up a rolling £1.99 subscription or purchase an annual subscription (£19.99) through Future’s website.
The latest issue of Future’s magazine for Windows users features three of my contributions: the lead feature on answering common Windows 10 questions, a tutorial on using the free Study Planner app and my regular four-page Support Squad column.
