Merry Christmas From The Gadgetoid Team

It’s been a year of slow but sure growth for us here at Gadgetoid. We’ve been joined by John and, briefly, Ken Bool who have contributed a great deal to our games console coverage. John has single handedly churned out a wealth of Xbox 360 reviews for us and attained a very small fan following.

We’ve fought to deliver new content and explore new avenues, including an absurd number of case reviews and a look at some great DAB radios.

Our Podcast is now in iTunes, although it currently stands at a single episode we’re eager to produce more and strive to be considerably less boring. We have also experimented with video recording of both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in-game footage, this might result in a video Podcast sometime in 2009.

January 2009 will see us catching up with an overwhelming amount of coverage that we were eager to publish in December but just couldn’t find the time. Many more case reviews are on the way, and we’ll be looking at SONY’s all-in-one computers, more professional audio equipment from Korg, Behringer and Line6, plenty more console games and all manner of other things.

So! Happy Christmas! Have a great time off, if you’re having one, and have a great Christmas. We hope you’ll be reading Gadgetoid through 2009 and we’ll be making every effort to bring you interesting coverage of everything from professional audio gear to computer games and stay true to our name.
