Roll up for the mys­tery Tor

Warn­ing: this mag­a­zine con­tains strong lan­guage, flash­ing images and scenes you may find dis­turb­ing. I’m jok­ing – it’s all good, clean fun as usual! I just wanted to pre­empt any con­cerns you may have af­ter see­ing the word ‘Tor’ on the cover. The Onion Router, to give the soft­ware its full name, has a shady rep­u­ta­tion but its cre­ators claim only 3% of Tor traf­fic in­volves ne­far­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties ( bit.ly/tor432). As we ex­plain in our cover fea­ture on page 40, Tor has many ben­e­fits: it lets you browse the web anony­mously, se­curely and with­out re­stric­tions, and you won’t be ex­posed to un­pleas­ant con­tent un­less you ex­pressly seek it out.

Also in this is­sue, I’m de­lighted to un­veil our new Tv-stream­ing sec­tion, What to Watch On­line, which rounds up the cream of video-on-de­mand ser­vices so you can make the most of Net­flix, BBC iplayer, Ama­zon Video and more. Who would have thought cream and onion make such a win­ning com­bi­na­tion?!
