And what's with The Great Escape and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004? Those were reviewed ages ago in SKOAR! :?

Enter the Matrix sounds interesting. I think the concept was given some space in the mag a coupla months back. So I hope this time around the article comes with a fresh perspective.

And BTW a 200 pg booklet (if it may be called that ;)) sounds gr8! :D Waiting desperately to see what it looks like. :)

BTW have the copies been dispatched already?


Another Brick in the Wall
Hmm..., atleast the content of mag seems promising than the DVD content...and i am looking forward to the 200 page booklet...
And the jewellery thing for mobs might be a good read..., looking for the issue :)


Old wine in new bottle - laptop, pda, mobiles, MFDs, and ofcourse gadgets !
DVD is better.

And About that digital photgraphy, dont expect anything great. Most probably it will be a fully sponsored book by Nikon.


Where's the feedback thread for March issue raaabo?

I must say this issue is a great value for money. The book on Digital Photography is a great value addition. Contents is good, although paper quality is not great. It must not have been economically viable. But hats off to Digit team for making it possible. :) I haven't been able to go through the mag contents though.


Please Please

Please i again request to digit people to add column for webdesigners seperatly as we need to be in touch of all others.
I hope u will not delete my request from ur hard drive(i mean ur brain)


dont know why but this month,, the mag reached earlier than usual.
i am still waiting for the feedback thread
