    An unexpectedly special month, so I'll dispense with those formalities first:

    <ooh>

    Reviewed this month:
    Responsible for more missed deadlines than Typhoid and Malaria combined - the Xbox 360! That's right - read the review first, only in Digit!

    Here Comes AMD’s Nemesis! Heard about the Conroe? Intel’s latest processor? We poke and prod this monster as it roars its way into the market

    Office 2007 Beta 2 on the DVD - for Digit readers only!

    Bazaar's Back! Product reviews galore!

    </ooh>

    Guys, digit's contents are good. I'm happy. Don't listen to people saying that they would condemn you. Don't worry, they won't.

    They are trying to show off their prominence. Guys, I guess digit's on the main track once again. KUDOS!!!!!!!

    Carry on and just check the suggestion box's last page for my suggestions(read complaints). Don't worry NOW I'm happy( smiles)

    Thank you digit. Me loves you again!

    Good to see Office 2007 beta 2. It will take people sometime to figure out things in the latest one. Me, as an MS Office tech support guy, found it difficult to find out some features...

    The look is totally different

    Regarding the other contents....its OK
    But I am sure that Digit will improve in the next 3 months.....you all know why..........

    Because Microsoft didn't permit us. Vista won't be given with any magazine for a few months yet.
