Why Computeractive?

From the Editor

Daniel Booth, Editor - Computeractive 1Hello... 

The most important part of my job as Editor of Computeractive is to make sure every issue is packed with computer, phone and tablet advice you’ll find useful. To do that, I have to make sure we explain everything in plain English. I know how frustrating it can be to read confusing tech ‘help’ that only ends up bamboozling you.

That’s why you’ll find easy-to-follow advice and tips on every page of Computeractive, from the product reviews to the workshops to the problems solved. And it doesn’t matter what phone or tablet you have, or what version of Windows you use - you’ll find tips on all of them.

If you’re considering subscribing to Computeractive then it’s a fair guess that computing is your main passion. I understand - it’s mine too. Like you I realise that PCs aren’t just gadgets. They’re indispensable machines that make life much easier. We’re here to help you make the most of yours.
