Editorial Comment

Technology

Leads The Way In

Innovation

This issue looks at some of the latest develop-

ments using advanced technology to remotely

operate demolition excavators and telescopic

handlers.

I also write extensively on new plant and equipment that has been

launched recently and the first supplement looking ahead to Intermat

2015. The show promises to have many new products as this is the

showcase event in Europe this year.

Technology is impacting on all aspects of life. What used to be a

mobile telephone is now a compact computer allowing users to use GPS

navigation systems, read a book, listen to the radio or music or catch up

on the latest television news.

iPads and Tablets - Life Changing

Whereas 10 years ago, commuters and people travelling mainly read a

newspaper, magazine or books. Today, they do the same but in a digital

format.

Everyone has their eye’s focused on a screen and while some are

playing video games, the majority are doing what commuters and peo-

ple travelling have always done - reading newspapers, magazines or

books.

Since the format was changed to make it easier to read on iPads and

tablets, Contractors World International magazines have seen a massive

uptake of the PDF download option.

Over 80,000 have downloaded the magazine in the last month - of

which over 75% elect the interactive PDF version. The file may be large,

but readers obviously enjoy the video content.

Most programs (apps) that are downloaded onto portable devices

are either free but with advertising or, for a very small cost, an advertis-

ing free version can be obtained.

Is this the way for digital magazines to go? Which would you prefer?

A magazine that is 30-40% advertising but FREE or no advertising for a

low annual subscription.
