    Never sent an issue, subpar and rude customer service

    I ordered this months ago and never received an issue. When I emailed customer service, they said the post office returned my issues as bad address, which of course they never bothered to contact me about for over 3 months. When they supplied the address they had for me, it was correct - and I receive plenty of other magazines to this address. I asked in email what we do next, and never got a response. So I called them, and spoke to a person. They told me the same thing, that my first issues were returned to sender, and that my address needed to be corrected. I told them it was correct, at which point they said it was all fixed now. I asked how it was all fixed, if the original address they had was correct and yet I wasn't receiving an issue. She repeated that it was all fixed now, offered to sell me a gift of wired to someone else, and when I declined, hung up on me. I suppose I'm supposed to cross my fingers and wait another couple months?

    I will never order another magazine from this company (CondeNast Publications). FYI, other magazines by this company are:

    Vogue
    W
    Glamour
    Allure
    Self
    Teen Vogue
    GQ
    Details
    Architectural Digest
    Brides
    Lucky
    Golf Digest
    Golf World
    Vanity Fair
    Bon Appetit
    Traveler
    The New Yorker

    I've subscribed before to Self, GQ, and Details, and they all were so bad I never renewed.

    The Wired Magazine

    I have meet Wired magazine on 90s in the streets of Lima Peru in a book flea market. These issue has William Gibson on frontpage, I buy it and begin to read and always is fresh and original, taking account of new computers, gadgets and some luxury items.
    But Wired is "the magazine" to be informed about technologies and the future. Right now the mag has become so full of advertising but always have good articles from lucid people, Nicholas Negroponte, Bruce Sterling and interviews to the directors of high tech companies.
    Essential.

    Order directly from Wired, not from here!

    Bought a subscription in September 2010, by February 2011 still hadn't arrived. Customer service was RUDE and no help whatsoever. Finally started arriving in March!

    My two teen boys love this magazine. It has technology and science information written in a fun to read format. This magazine has all the up to date, hip products and information.

    Canceled my purchase after two issues. Content might have been good but I could not tell.... Navigation was too much of a pain. Not worth the trouble
