Letters to the Editor - April 2012

G&G readers write back to the editor of the magazine, sharing their valuable feedback.

     Print Edition: April 2012

THAT SINKING FEELING
As your cover story on Ultrabooks shows, PC makers are having to reinvent themselves faced with the onslaught from tablets, especially the iPad ("The Ultrabook is here", March 2012). I bought an iPad last year and have seldom opened my old laptop since. I still do use the laptop whenever I have to write something. Is this the writing on the wall for PC makers? The good thing is that companies are improvising to keep computers in the race. KV RAO, SECUNDERABAD

WHAT ABOUT THEM
I read G&G every month and like the magazine very much. But I noticed that some mobile phones like Samsung Galaxy R and some others which I feel are better than HTC Radar and Samsung Omnia W are still not included in your Top 10 Smartphones list. And, for many readers of G&G who are PC gamers like me, you should make a new column (like the ones for apps and mobiles) that will include news about new games as well as some tips and tricks. DEVANSH CHAWDA, ON EMAIL

Devansh, our Top Ten list has the phones that we feel are the absolute best ones after using them and putting them through tests. As for games, we always have a good mix of features and reviews and we hope you derive useful information from them.

CLEANING UP
The article on managing email was very helpful ("Safe Mail", March 2012). I had been struggling to keep my Gmail from crossing the 100 per cent threshhold. Now, I use findbigmail.com featured in the story to find and delete big, unwanted mails. VARSHA SWAMY, MUMBAI

KEEP THE JUNK AWAY
Apropos "Safe mail" (March 2012), I feel e-mails from advertisers and telemarketers should be banned. Only people who subscribe to such services should get those mails. Also people should avoid randomly forwarding mails to everyone as it is a waste of time for people who are not interested. Such people should be told that their mails are not welcome. Even for common email, like on New Year, people should send each mail individually and not as a mass mail to add a personal touch like in hand written letters. MAHESH KAPASI, NEW DELHI
