The best software for 2008

So it’s all over for another year. 2007 has gone, and the New Year is upon us. 2008 offers much to look forward to, including the advent of ‘Web 3’, a new Indiana Jones movie, updates to Microsoft’s Vista operating system and lots more. Nick has the low-down on forthcoming software developments along with an explanation of just what ‘Web 3’ is and how it’s going to revolutionize your Internet experience in 2008. James, on the other hand, is keen to point out just how silly predictions can sometimes be. Check out his post examining the worst tech predictions of all time.

Many of you will have made resolutions to change your ways in the New Year. Making resolutions is easy – you just say them and they’re made. Sticking to them is much harder, though, so Elena has picked out the best software to help you stay the course and learn that language, shed those pounds or bin those cigarettes. We’ve also got a handy guide to creating your own snazzy calendar, a surefire way to brighten up your desk in 2008.

Nick is something of a clean-freak when it comes to his PC, so it’s no surprise that he took the New Year as an opportunity to give his computer a thorough going over. Ring the changes this January with his selection of the best maintenance tools for Windows and it’ll feel like you’ve got a brand new machine.

If you did receive a new computer for Christmas, there’s a chance you got a Mac. If you were among the lucky ones, Cyril has got some great tips on getting the most out of your new Mac, starting with his 200 shortcuts for Leopard post. He has also put an interesting organization guide together, just what you need for unlocking your Mac’s GTD capabilities.

Finally, next week marks one year of insideTonic and we’re planning a little celebration. Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming giveaway on the blog, as well as a round-up of our favorite stories from our first 12 months.

Until next week…
