Pocket Year 2000: Press
Press and other publications
This page provides links to the general and computer press. In general,
we link to the publications' home pages or search pages, with suggestions
on how to search effectively. We also highlight a few key stories.
Web publication normally seems to lag the paper copy by a few days.
Don't expect to find stories on the web sites as soon as the printed copy
hits your desk.
This is also the section of the Pocket 2000 Website which will go out
of date most quickly. Sometimes I don't have time to check and update the
highlights. Visit the sites yourself for the most up to date information.
Some publishers "retire" their archive information after a while.
If you find links which no longer work, please send
