jc: "Which RISC OS magazines (if any) are you taliking about?"

For me the RISC OS magazines are all things of the past (in the personal sense), but many of them (at least when it was still more generally Acorn stuff) seemed to have glowing, clichéd reviews of stuff in deference to the advertiser in question whose products they were reviewing, even when the products were rubbish. The usual "if <topic> is your sort of thing then you can't do much worse than <rubbish product>" prose along with five stars out of five or whatever.
