I read your article on document management (see issue 285, p102) with interest, as I run an IT consultancy specialising in data capture and workflow. Eddie Ginja recommended that “business should identify exactly what the business need is”, which is good advice, but he goes on to recommend creating a list of requirements, what you want it to do and how much you want to spend; this is the point at which I would urge engaging with likely vendors.

Why is Jon Honeyball obsessed with Apple? In issue 275, he tells us all about Samsung's desktop-on-a-phone idea, which it pinched from Microsoft. Both seem to have done a good job, but neither is apparently acceptable, and Jon is waiting for Apple to have a go instead.

I read PC Pro and Jon Honeyball’s columns with interest, but his constant criticism of Microsoft (see issue 220, p70), and his love for Apple, seems inappropriate. Microsoft has made mistakes while pioneering an industry – who can forget the Internet Explorer monopoly debacle – but a decade later, Apple exhibits a much greater control over its own devices.

What is it with phrases such as “against the iPhone X, suddenly the iPhone 8 seems quite reasonable” (see issue 278, p3)? The fact is, it isn’t reasonable and it’s £100 more than the last model.
