Right off the assembly line
I have a few suggestions about DVD content
1)Plz Provide more HD game trailers.
2)And if possible video review of the games like the one from gametrailers but made by you guys.
3)And also videos of different PC related stuff like assembling a PC,or overclocking or similar videos DIY videos like u used to show on digit TV.
4)More TED videos and I feel HD movie videos are a waste of space since most of the movie trailers that is given aren't even released here.

Agree with the suggestions made since my last post, will try and implement them. COD is an option, write to help@thinkdigit and they will guide you. I'll look into the links. I was on leave, and when I came back I was busy with forum upgrading, and a million other things. I'll try and respond quicker in the future, my apologies.

A bit of feedback from my side. Although I could have posted directly on th feedback thread but wanted to post it here.
1) The cover story by Siddharth Parwatay is one the best articles I have read for a long ling time. All the sub headings were very very well explained and written. There was a touch of everything it seems. Hacktivism, attention seekers, etc. Literally just about everything. Ok the map of the world was a bit confusion but yes it was good. Overall just an amazing article.

Wow thanks a lot TechFreak ! You made my day :)

Sorry for the late reply , but I just saw it...

Its a thing that i noticed, when i read DIGIT magazine.
Shortened URLS are really a good alternative for long hyperlinks. It reduces space and also easy to accessible.

But, sometimes i confused with the hyperlinks that has O(capital O) or 0 (Zero) in the shortened urls for the digit articles.
Since shortened urls are case-specific, the result is - PAGE NOT FOUND.
I've to experiment with O's and 0's to actually get the desired topic.

My suggestion is to use some different font or different zero (slashed/dotted) that can differentiate between Capital O's and 0's.

Anyone had the same problem or its just me?

^^ I think that's a fair complaint.

Also, I wanted to prebook October 2012 edition. But the text in red don't let me do that. I am worried.

I tried Opera, Firefox and Chromium. Getting this message across each one of them. Can it be resolved by tomorrow?

Update: Ok. So despite my apprehension, I went through with the pre order on Firefox. And transaction went smoothly.

I would just like to point out here to the person concerned, that despite the fact that I was billed Rs 169 (the offer price for Oct 2012 edition), I got a confirmation mail that I was billed Rs 150. And that was repeated in the mail from thinkdigit.com too.
Not a big deal, but a point worth looking into.

I am really disappointed with the Digit December 2012 issue.

No feedback thread yet? Waiting for one to come to up to post feedback.

For the simple reason of the lack of a feedback thread for December 2012 issue I'm forced to post here. To begin with I'm hugely disappointed this month. I found the magazine fundamentally lacking (sorry to say that although I am a huge fan)
Here are a few things I complain of-

1. In page 116, you guys in quite a normal tone asked us to p*** on Steve Jobs grave if our "heart so desires"
IMO such immature troll comic type language is not unacceptable from a magazine of your stature. Just because he created Apple which doesn't do things that always pleases the geek world doesn't mean you will ask people to do such things. A guy who has done so much for the tech world gets disrespected like this by the most read Technology magazine in India? It's unacceptable
No I'm not a fanboy.


2. Some really bad glaring errors like, in pg.90 in the Encyclopedia Technica you guys wrote Eric Schmidt was born on 27 April 1995.

3. Also the cover story felt like reading a comic of some sorts. In the story "9 ways earth could reach doomsday" was there really the need of things like "Zombie Apocalypse"?
Also things like Polar ice dissipation don't happen overnight.


4. Game reviews by your magazine look like a joke. Seriously, the Hitman Absolution review was too short and lacked IMO.
It was a 400 word article(I counted) and hardly spoke how the game actually is. The article gave only a brief idea. I could find no info about the storyline and only one sentence about the sentence was written. No mention of recoil, etc

The Assassins Creed III review and Halo 4 reviews felt somewhat better. They atleast touched in brief about various aspects of the game.

5. Also I find you guys biased against Apple. Something being Apple means it's overpriced and substandard. Why so much criticism against Apple entering the smaller sized tablet category? Steve Jobs might have said 7 inch is too small but market scenarios do change over time (it's 2 years since he said it in 2010)
Merely saying "We gave iPad the best tablet Zero-1 award" is NOT a good enough clarification against the prejudice you have developed against them.

I hope I haven't hurt anyone's sentiments with this post. I am a big fan and a well wisher of your magazine. Shall always remain one :)

^^ Agreed. I didn't renew my digit subscription when it ended a few months back. The only reason I bought the December's edition was because it was a collector's one and I wanted the encyclopedia technica. While the FT was decent I have to say I was disappointed by the content of the magazine. Things as fictional as zombie attacks should be kept as side stories, not a major part of cover stories. I prefer more quality, TECHNOLOGY "articles".

Used to Buy digit occasionally. Stopped doing it after the Pathetic Anniversary edition full of Advertisements. Another Special issue turns out to be pathetic, apparently. Why do you charge the extra bucks, huh?

Ok Got the answer why they stopped the feedback threads. :(
