yup, exactly.Its not just about filling up the DVD for the sake of filling it up. Trailers are bundled with the DVD, I'm assuming that what you're asking is for us to provide gameplay videos videos and screenshots of the games we review as well. Is that so?
A lot of posts. I'll try to get to address them one at a time.
@Tech&Me- Your feedback does matter. Which is why this thread is there in the first place. This thread is meant for feedback whether harsh or otherwise. Just because you're not getting a prompt reply doesn't mean we are ignoring you. If you have any particular grievance, please post it here and it will be looked into for sure.
Also, it would be good if you guys can also post about what you liked about the issue along with your complaints so we can better understand how to serve you.
Robert clarified the issue with the pdfs, please read the earlier posts. It was NOT a deliberate tactic and neither was it meant to be misleading.
Digit is a monthly magazine so we can't possibly satisfy your "daily" tech needs.
@Tech&Me- The fact that there was a printing mistake is a grave error on our part, especially if some readers bought the issue specifically because of it. We would never ever mislead the readers deliberately simply because there would be no point in it.
Deliberately printing errors would have no long term benefit as our readers are quite intelligent and have enough brains to point out our mistakes the moment they occur and we are very painfully aware of that. Why would we ruin our reputation just to get a few extra bucks? Digit has not been running successfully for 10 years to just throw it all away on a gimmick like that. The loyalty the readers show us and the faith they have in the magazine is of paramount importance and we would never do anything to deliberately shake their confidence in the magazine.
The magazine undergoes rigorous proofing before being sent for publishing but sometimes we slip up. Such errors should not occur and we are taking steps to ensure such a goof up doesn't happen again.
Team Digit has no EARS to listen to any of us. Its a commercial entity and thus money matters more for them.
Look at their recent tactics, misleading advertisements, wrong dvd content, etc.
They have even ditched the DEMAND SECTION of this forum, its just a formality now to create that particular thread ..... as a tradition, that's it.
Its a waste of money to invest in such things ..... better use google for your daily tech needs and reviews. Watch NDTV GadgetsGuru and Tech Guru on CNBC they are far better....... even Click on BBC is ok.
Problems was : They printed on the back Hard Cover of the packaging "Open SUSE 11.4" as one of the items to be found on the DVD, along with other items like Windows 8 Developer Preview, etc.
To my amazement the DVD actually contained a LANG CD iso of that particular item --- OPEN SUSE 11.4 and not the actual OS itself !!!
What clarification do you have for this ??
Why they printed it so as to appear that the OS was provided ??
Does this not a tactic to fool the readers ?? Is it not a misleading advt. ??
And regarding the pdf issues, Robert's clarification and apologies does not make much sense to the readers who are not a forum members, and also even if it was not deliberately done (huh, it was deliberately done to fool the readers to buy it ), it however falls under MISLEADING ADVERTISEMENTS only as per rules.
I hope DIGIT will survive the test of time.
Although some mags have stopped PRINT editions and gone ONLINE, I fear DIGIT may have to follow up with the trend sooner or later.
iPADs / PDF readers adds to the worries as well !!
This is a NEW GENERATION change which we are going to witness. As we say about our FATHER's that they belonged to non-tech generation and as we call ourselves gen-next, our kids will become future-next, a leap ahead of us also.
There will be NO PRINT materials, such PRINT mags will become items to be kept in the future-next museums of tomorrow.
I think its time DIGIT makes a switch to the FUTURE-NEXT........ ( IMHO )
We're not idiotic, we thought of that as well, and we cater to our online audience via our site. However, I still think that magazine readers are a different breed. They've always been a minority, of course, and will continue to be, but as Indian Readership Survey figures will tell you, Digit is one of the few magazines that is growing in readership.
Also, with the sheer amount of readership we have... which IRS will tell you is more than all the other tech magazines combined, we must be doing something right!
And yes, we have tried iPad and Kindle versions, but I think it's still a little early for that in India. Not enough adopters for soft copy mags just yet.
I may be wrong, so please, if you want to prove me wrong, write in to editor at thinkdigit dot com if you would like to purchase Digit and Fast Track on an iPad or Kindle, and I'll be happy to eat my words and make those versions ASAP.
Who did you send the mails to?
Thank you very much for writing to us.
We would like to inform you that we have forwarded your complaint to concerned person and our team will get back to you at the earliest possible.
