GADGET SHOW LIVE 2009: Tech Digest "How To Theatre" Talks


Zara, Duncan, Chris and I spent last weekend up at the Birmingham NEC for the Gadget Show Live meeting hundreds of Tech Digest readers and making plenty of new friends while we were there too.

We had a fantastic response from our series of 30-45 minute “How To Theatre” guides to everything from HDTVs to free music and software but for those that couldn’t make it up there for the day, or those who couldn’t scribble everything down fast enough, we’ve compiled them into written form for you to digest, consider and cogitate at you leisure:

How To Theatre Talks

How to buy an HDTV and set up a home cinema

How to get all the software you’ll ever need for free

How to get the most from your mobile phone

How to take better photos and get the most from your digital camera


Gadget Show Live 2009 – completely, utterly sold out!


Ladies, gentlemen; gadget boys and gadget gals, the Gadget Show Live 2009 is officially sold out. I have just been informed by the event organisers that there are precisely zero pairs of tickets left for both the Super Theatre and even access to the main show.

To those that have their hands clutched around a pair like Charlie Bucket and Grandpa Joe, then congratulations, for those that haven’t, well, there might just be a competition on Tech Digest very soon indeed because I happen to have a bunch burning a hole in my drawer at the moment and I prefer my drawers without holes in.

Keep ’em peeled and I’ll see you down at the NEC at the How To Theatre along with the rest of the Shiny Tech Crew from 17th-19th April. Good luck.
