Technology at Home magazine
25/12/2017 10:19
Slightly off topic, but I know a few here read it - Technology at Home magazine has been suspended, according to the website. With the demise of Living with Technology earlier, it made me wonder would anybody be interested in a one-off magazine (similar size to both RISC OS Now and Qercus) covering a broad spectrum of what both titles covered? I'd envisage this as a 52 page, A4, title - full colour - good quality paper.

Covering a mixture of computing (PC, Mac and RISC OS) and non-computing technology issues.

Cover price - circa 3.50/4ukp? Dave

If you are still using a Risc PC now, its unlikely you'll ever buy another RISC OS machine, you'll may make noises about doiong so if something comes along, but all you'll really do is complain about it lacking compared to PC/Mac and how expensive it is. You'll probaby not spending anything significant on software either, and then complain nothing is being developed.

The way I see it, if you are actively working to support RISC OS, by paying for hardware and software (or developing it) you have every right to complain about the way things may be going. However if you are sitting there with an old machine, using a PC or Mac most of the time, and waiting for RISC OS to die so you can say I told you so, then you have no useful contribution to make.

Living with Technology sounded like a magazine for inferior people who can't cope, who'd prefer the technology to go away.

Furthermore, the genre is too all-encompasing - people don't say I'm interested in technology in my home, let's buy Technology at Home. They say I'm looking for a hi-fi and buy a specialist hi-fi magazine.

Also, if the target demographic is people who are not very tech-savvy and need to be guided, it's worth noting that I don't think many of them are interested in wireless music sharing round their house or connecting their burglar alarms to their PC.

Yes I am still using a RPC.

No I probably won't be able to buy a more recent machine unless Ernie provides the cash but NO I am not bleating about features being lacking. I am very happy to be able to make as much use of it as I am able and to support the market to the limits of my available finances.

GD Lets see for starters...

Can't interface my PDA with it.

Can't interface one of my Digicameras with it, though one other will.

Video camera input...

Can't interface my mobile phone with it.

Can't interface my Graphire2 with it. (In a meaningful way) Can't interface a lot of the newer range of printers with it.

Lot of Modern large Hardrives don't work with it.

Uppity about what CD players it will interface with.

Dread to think of the problems trying to interface a DVD drive with it.

USB record deck.
