<p>N MY LAST Publisher's Note in August 2004,
I recounted the many firsts that set Digit
apart from the rest of the technology
magazines in Indiathe first magazine with
a regular CD, the first to bundle two CDs, the
first to give away a movie VCD and then
India's first magazine to distribute a DVD
with every issue.
But last August was so long ago!
Our readers are demanding, and surely
are India's most knowledgeable technology
users. You expect nothing but
groundbreaking innovation from your
technology navigator. Consistently.
Having said that, at Digit we believe
innovation does not mean adding DVDs or
CDs. Innovation must be inspired, and it
should serve a specific purpose.
Fast Track, the book accompanying Digit,
was born out of this belief.
Fast Track is Digit's latest value addition.
Sub-titled 'Your Handy Guide To Everyday
Technology' this book, with 200-plus pages,
is the ideal partner to the main magazine.
Digit will continue to retain its flavour of
being Your Technology Navigator; reviewing
the latest products, satiating your appetite
for gizmos, giving you productivity
solutions, helping you in business,
introducing you to the other side of
technology and how it touches (and can
touch) our lives in a million different ways.
Fast Track, on the other hand, will
concentrate on one topic every month,
giving you comprehensive coverage on all
you really need to know on that subject.
We decided to begin with Digital
Photography, a domain most magazines
touch upon only in skimpy detail. You could,
of course, buy a book on the subject, but
that would only dent your pocket, not to
mention dealing with dilemma of which
author to go by. A quality book from your
favourite magazine, bundled free with
every issue, therefore, makes for a
Value-additions like this one are the only
reason why Digit has consistently been able
to retain its leadership position among
technology publications in India. But the
secret to being India's No. 1 magazine goes
beyond innovation. It's about passion and
