Letter from the Editor

The best gizmos in class in every department of an executive’s life—at work, at home, chilling out and on the move.

Sanjiv Bhattacharya | Print Edition: May 31, 2009

Dear Readers, I’m happy to announce that in producing this issue, I have undergone a change. Not that change—it’s OK, I’m still the same gender. What I’m trying to say is I never used to be the gadget type. I was a Luddite and proud, righteously irked by all the Wi-Fi this and Blu-ray that. I had a rubbishy little cellphone with zero features which I’d brandish in protest. “It does the job,” I’d say. “It’s just a phone.”

But this last month, dear readers, I have seen the (glowing back) light. I was lost and now I am found (thanks to my new Wi-Fi capable GPS). After weeks of wading through handsets and hard drives, I’ve become Mr Bluetooth. Captain 3G. I don’t just touch my touch screen, I stroke it. I’ve become fussy—I won’t get out of bed for less than 16 GB. I need megapixels and USB ports. I’m in a gizmo state of mind. For instance, this morning, I looked at my toaster and thought, “why can’t I surf the Net on this thing?” Twitter and toast—it’s the breakfast of the future! It will come as no surprise to you that I’m writing this very letter on a funky little Nokia E75 on my way home from work.

That’s how we roll here at More these days. On the fly. Connected. And it’s with this kind of zeal that we bring you our Gadget Issue. The best gizmos in class in every department of an executive’s life—at work, at home, chilling out and on the move. Beyond that, we visit the new Aman Hotel in Delhi and chat with director Anurag Kashyap, hotelier Vikram Chatwal and the lovely Neha Dhupia. Do let us know what you think at moreletters@intoday.com. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think my Pearl’s buzzing…
