    No way! That is sad news indeed - RIP.

    Guy was one of my favourite IT columnists back in the day. Is articles were always very well written and informative. I used to look forward to reading them.

    This sucks I didn't even realise he was ill, since he was still writing up to a few weeks ago. His journalism was uncommonly accurate, insightful and - most importantly - knowledgeable, and I can't think of anyone immediately who can take his place. It's a sad day indeed.

    I also remember his time at PCW when I was an avid reader. A sad loss. Goodbye Guy.

    We've lost a few IT journos/writers of note over the last few years; MacBiter (Tony Tyler) and now Guy. Really used to enjoy reading their columns.

    Sad news, was one of the first columns I would read back in the days of my PCW magazine subscription in the 80's.

    A sad loss as he certainly knew his stuff.

    Also he was the cause of the taxi driver or similar being interviewed live on BBC news about a Beatles vs Apple case when mistaken for Kewney.
