    This effort of yours is welcome and is gratefully appreciated. We, the common people, need information about new gadgets available in the Indian market. Many retailers are out to get more of our money for a gadget that is available elsewhere for a considerably less amount. Arming us with useful, essential information about features and prices of gadgets by you, enables us to save money and buy useful gadgets that not only look good and boost our image but work for us well. God Bless Us All.

    GadgetFan has fanned out with a defined objective .
    Welcome to it –the new baby of Trakin..
    The name is good enough but readers are choosy putting more pressure on its
    parental body. There are some in this field but gadgets are galloping fast with tech-innovation and so GadgetFan has good scope if it addresses the needs of users. Too tech details are not of interest…the reason is to drive a car and enjoy the ride, mechanical details are never taken in . It is a no.
    So we join our voice to say congrats .Shaping and defining is in your hands.

      Thanks Mr. Rama Rao,
      I think you said rightly…The key is to be non-technical, and yet be fully informative…and thats what is the vision of TGF as well..
