I picked up T3 before a recent flight on Virgin Atlantic - they were giving them out for free at the gate, it had a pretty woman on the cover and so I picked one up thinking it'd pass the time on the flight.
Despite the pretty woman on the front (which seems to be a feature on the cover of every issue), the magazine is actually all about gadgets - MP3 players, laptops, games consoles, video cameras, still cameras etc. No more pictures of pretty women adorned the inside pages, although I suppose there are more specialist magazines if you want that sort of thing! ;)
The magazine itself is very well designed and made, obviously aimed at professional men in their 20s and 30s (who have money to spend on the latest gadgets). It has a thick shiny cover and a neatly designed layout which makes the articles very easy to read. It's also pretty thick at over 150 pages.
I found many of the articles pretty interesting - especially their feature about the future of technology and the possibility of an iPhone Nano. There's a massive guide at the back of the magazine that gives their recommendations of what product to buy in loads of different categories from MP3 players to TVs to games consoles.
I enjoyed reading T3, but I got a copy for free... I'm not sure if I'd pay £3.99 for it (the regular price)... unless there was a really attractive girl on the cover! ;)
T3 is the Technophile's version of what Heat does for celebrity lovers. It includes a usually chunky (like, very chunky) guide for what Technology is up and coming, or what's been making good headway in the market recently. It includes everything from iPod docking stations, to Sat-Navs, to mobile phones, and games consoles. It's one for the men really.
It contains relevant information to latest releases of games, DVDs, and various technological equipment. It has lots of information relating to each topic, and is definitely worth the somewhat expensive price. It also features a selection of models (Totally for the men, yet again) with the latest handhelds/consoles. The magazine is also written in a very funny, sometimes dry and sarcastic style.
Very heavy! I usually buy this at the airport to read on the plane, and it takes up a lot of room and is very bulky. It is totally a one track line, and will only discuss things relevant to technology. It's not really recommended for anyone not interested in the subject, but I guess that's a rule for most magazines.
Overall, this magazine features a lot (I mean a lot) of products and items inside, and I feel, is worth the money. It has a lot of top-tens, top-50s, top-whatever, and this can be quite good when looking for a nice product. However, it really is packed with information and can be hard to get into sometimes.
