Since the iPod’s inauspicious launch event (“It’s going to be the hottest gift this holiday season,” quoth Steve Jobs), the face of gadgetry has changed completely. It furthered the cause of digital media. It made people who would otherwise claim to have no interest in technology jelly-kneed. It paved the way for the smartphone and tablet revolutions. Sure, most of this stuff would have happened eventually anyway, but there’s no doubt that the iPod accelerated the march of digital technology and turned gadgets into front-page stories. For us, its 10th birthday this month gave us an excuse to traipse the corridors of recent history in search of other genre-defining gadgets. Ah, what joyous memories… You can see our retrospective findings in a story called 39 Gadgets That Changed The World on p50 (1). Get misty-eyed – and expect a few surprises.
Surprise is everywhere this month. We were very surprised, for example, to see just how excited we could get by a fast autofocus – the Olympus PEN E-P3 (2, p44) is astonishing, honest – and at how much joy you can get from a tablet that costs less than £200, and at how good electric bikes have got (3, p90). Nice surprises, just as the iPod was in 2001. Enjoy.
Stuff is available to download on Zinio from www.stuff.tv/digital-magazine. We’re also working on a fully interactive magazine app for iPad and Android tablets – more info on that soon.
A WORD ABOUT PRICES... Generally, we show the manufacturer’s recommended price. Two exceptions: • Mobile phones get a SIM-free price unless they’re locked to a network and so only available with a contract. • All prices in the Top 10s (p139) are the best we could find at the time of printing.
