Read more: What Can We Expect From Android 6.0 Marshmallow?

When Apple released its much-vaunted iOS 8 platform, it was considered to be a seminal and ground-breaking moment for the brand. It certainly elevated the typical Apple experience, to the point where the upcoming iOS 9 upgrade is expected to simply refine ease of use and eradicate any technical flaws.


The same principle can be applied to the recent Android upgrades, with the forthcoming 6.0 Marshmallow update tagged as an incremental change that will simply add stability to and improve the security of its predecessor. What exactly can we expect from this upgrade, however, and what will it mean for Android users?

We have been following Cyberlink's ascendancy in the video world over many years and have reported on earlier editions of their flagship product PowerDirector.
Now, having taken quite a few videos with our Phantom Vision drone recently, we want to go beyond what the likes of Microsoft Video Maker could offer and opted to have a good fresh look again at the most recent edition of PowerDirector.

Let's mention a few highlights and show you how easy it is to produce some pleasing results.

This is a quick review to test out the latest edition of Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition program.
Over the years we have been reviewing all the editions starting with DNS 8.
Apart from an ever increasing accuracy (how far beyond 99% can we go?) there are some major improvements in the current release that we can report on.

When we reviewed Lightroom 4 I pretty much vowed to myself I won't bother with the next upgrade. My reasoning? Lightroom did pretty well everything I needed it to do: it's a great editing place for my Nikon 600 images with all the tools that I as an aerial photographer could possibly need. There were even modules which I had not used yet...
What changed my mind?

The Dragon Roars Its Head Again: Dragon 12 Professional

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Software

Read more: The Dragon Roars Its Head Again: Dragon 12 ProfessionalWe have reviewed all of the recent editions of Dragon, Nuance's NaturallySpeaking programs, ever since version 8 came out and this latest iteration is setting the bar high again with 99% accuracy claimed. Whilst that may be true for a native English speaker with good diction, I would be happy with an accuracy rating that is high enough so that I don't have to make too many corrections. As it is, my typing speed is reasonably high and very accurate (particularly with automatic spelling corrections enabled!).

For Dragon to claim that it is about three times as fast as typing, which is certainly true, this only is of value if you don't have to make too many corrections....
So how did we go?

QuickBooks Premier 2010/11 QBi series -- Reviewed

Read more: QuickBooks Premier 2010/11 QBi series -- Reviewed You would think that, having used QuickBooks in our parent company for many years, would make writing a review on this product a lot easier. Yes and no. It is easier because you know how it works and your business will be totally lost without it but on the other hand, we probably only utilise a fraction of its potential. Just like our brains, I guess…. That means there are a lot of functions and features in the program that we never use but these may be just the key elements for other businesses so we'll quickly list them as well.

Review: Assassin's Creed - Brotherhood (PS3/X360)

 Read more: Review: Assassin's Creed - Brotherhood (PS3/X360)Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is the third in a series of games that mix renaissance Italy and the exploits of a secret group of assassins that penetrates all the way into modern society in 2012, but is it enough of a sequel to stand out of the shadow of its successful predecessor, Assassin’s Creed 2?
