Welcome to the new-look Register Hardware, the personal technology web site that goes from the lab to the living room to bring you the best news and product reviews of the coolest kit - and some of the clangers - coming out of the computer and consumer electronics worlds.
In addition to an fresh, dynamic design, we've expanded our news coverage - already well known for the same 'take no prisoners' approach as our sister-site, The Register - and created an entirely new reviews section where we'll be casting a critical eye over the hottest technology products, from games consoles, laptops, smartphones and accessories to UMPCs, GPS kit, networked media players and HD TVs.
Today also marks the launch of Q&A, a unique online help and advice service in which Register Hardware readers ask and answer their tech troubles, product queries and buying concerns.
We'll be bringing you a host of must-read features too - not forgetting our hugely popular competitions, which have already seen us give away Samsung plasma TVs, Sony PS3s, Microsoft Xbox Elites and Nokia smartphones, among other great prizes. And we have more coming your way.
So let us know what stories you want to see covered, which products you'd like to see tested, and of course post your questions - and answers - in Q&A. Remember, Register Hardware is here to help you.
Don't forget you can keep up-to-date with all our latest news stories, reviews, competitions and features through Register Hardware's many RSS and Atom feeds. And it's all on-screen for easy access at our homepage www.reghardware.co.uk.
PS. Do tell us what you think of the look...
They're all still there, Mark, even Useless... but Cool. Having expanded the number of sections fourfold, we couldn't get 'em all in along the top, so they're listed on the right-hand side, down a bit.
New Design....... NIMBY.!!
I thought I'd wait a few days and give the new Reg HW a good run out before making my mind up.
I have, and I still don't like.
Gone are the easy links accross the top, the short cuts back to El Reg /proper/, gone is the 'cool but useless' which i always liked, gone is the PDA section, the phone section et al. OK, maybe join the phones and pda together, to save on....... er, not sure really.
But now, things are a bit, well, messy.
to quote 'pctechxp' : bring back the old site.!!!!
Bring back the old site!
This one's terrible
I have to agree with NoCo37, it's not good is it....I had to hunt for the Editors' Blog.
Change is good.....except when it's bad...
Maybe you could run a poll and let the public vote :)
Its all a bit web 1.9....
1) Gradient fades - Check!
2) Round corners - Check!
3) Swirly graphics getting in the way when doing stuff...................nope.
Close but no cigar folks....
