From the Editor...


In recent months I have been encouraged time and again when I see the tremendous interest out there for a magazine on computer gaming. Many people have expressed the view that the time for a magazine on computer gaming is OVERDUE. Hopefully we have corrected that problem.


CGW is designed to meet your needs as a computer gamer. Each issue will evaluate computer games, give advice on strategy and tactics, announce new products, and provide a forum for you, the reader, to become active in the rapid nationwide development of the computer gaming hobby.


We hope to have a “Letters to the Editor” column beginning with the second or third issue. Please write us and express your thoughts on the articles presented in these pages, and/or your thoughts about the hobby in general. It is my hope that CGW will become a forum for an intelligent dialog between gamers, designers, manufacturers and retailers.


The coming explosion in use of personal computers has just begun, we at COMPUTER GAMING WORLD are excited about being a part of it, and are glad that you have joined with us.

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit    From the iTunes App Store...
