I just want to change my world, but from the inside

Issue #110 of Netguide (AKA “July 2007”) is on store shelves now, and as is the norm, I’veNetguide Magazine. I can in fact believe it's not... nah, I've pretty much spread that joke too thin. Hah! Spread! I kill me. written a smidgen or two of content within.

Sure, there are product reviews within; they’re still my bread and butter. Within its non-buttery pages* you’ll find reviews of: Norton 360, Belkin N1 Wireless Modem-Router, Linksys WAG325N Wireless Modem Router, Quickbooks Accounting Small Business 2007-2008, MYOB CashBasics 3, Windows Live Hotmail, Logitech Harmony Advanced Universal Remote 1000i, Blackberry 8800, Philips 9FF2M4 Digital Photo Frame, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary (PC, PS2), Overlord (PC), God Of War II (PS2) and Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 (PS2).

In a slight change from my usual reviews-centric world, however, there’s also a guide to accessibility tools for Windows XP users, something that proved a considerable challenge to write. Partly because the tools themselves aren’t laid out terribly well, but also because it’s quite challenging to write about disabilities and the tools used to overcome them without sounding patronising or missing the functional implications of certain types of ability issues.

* Unless you forcibly insert butter in there, I guess. Butter is not provided as part of the normal Netguide buying process, but some people will try anything once.
