ndulge us. It’s a milestone for a computer magazine to reach 20 years and still be going strong. The years are littered with one-time rivals who are no longer around.
Taking stock of what PC Advisor has become, and where it has come from, we’ve had great fun looking over all 20 years, laughing at some of the predictions we made, designs we used and headlines utilised to entice readers.
Check out the different styles of covers, the way the subjects covered changes and expands, and the way in which some messages remain constant. What we want from personal computing doesn’t really change, even as the medium of delivery grows ever more sophisticated.
Technology has come a long way in the 20 years we’ve been on the newsstand, and PC Advisor has come a long way with it. Far from the Windows-only book it once was, the magazine now reflects the increasingly divergent way we all interact with personalcomputing devices, from smartphones and tablets to desktops and laptops.
In that time we’ve morphed from being a magazine only in print, to a publication with the UK’s most popular technology magazine website (pcadvisor.co.uk), Europe’s most popular online technology forums (pcadvisor.co.uk/forums), our own digital magazines (tinyurl.com/6su6sdy), Facebook (facebook.com/pcadvisor) and Twitter (twitter.com/pcadvisor) publications, and mobile sites on Android and iOS.
There have never been more ways of enjoying PC Advisor, so join us as we flick through some of our favourite issues.
