Movies Games and Tech (MGT) was created back in the distant past of 2007 and focused primarily on Windows Home Server. Since then, it has grown to include games and gaming, movies, Windows Home Server, Windows Media Center, Apple products, toys, gadgets and basically anything in-between.

MGT actually started life as Using Windows Home Server (UWHS) but grew to be a lot more than Windows Home Server, so we changed the name to Connected Digital World (CDW) and now we are Movies Games and Tech (MGT).

We are always on the look out for new writers, articles, ideas, etc. for MGT, so if you are interested in joining the team, want us to cover something, or just want to say hi, drop us an email by clicking on the Contact Us link on the top of any page.
