PC magazine is for people who want to know more about tech not the super tech nerds.

I like PC magazine and it's content. It gives me a little more no how on the technical world. Within my circle I'm the gadget know how girl and this keeps me pretty updated. You forget this is a monthly subscription and contant is changing every day so no it will not...
I like PC magazine and it's content. It gives me a little more no how on the technical world. Within my circle I'm the gadget know how girl and this keeps me pretty updated. You forget this is a monthly subscription and contant is changing every day so no it will not be as updated as said a well constructed website. But if you really like tech, have a busy life, but would like to relax on your sofa and read what is going on around the computer world this is a good buy. No, not for you guy that sits in front of your computer six hours a day or someone who has a job that pretains to constantly being in the know. Just your average person who has a job not in the field and is your average consumer because we all know magazines are for consumers silly nerds. That being said it would have at least one more good artical to teach a little more but that is all I am giving you on this one. So take it, later boys. OH and aftrer thought if you wrote a review and don't have a NookColor then seriously what you wrote means nothing because that is the platform it is meant to be on.

In a word...HORRIBLE and not worth the $1.49 an issue.

HORRIBLE content. It's like visiting the internet once a month...and reading only one site. Outdated by the time it gets to you in the form of a ~70 page e-zine.

HORRIBLE reading experience. Navigation limited to COVER and FIRST PAGE, no jumps to articles.

HORRIBLE subscription management. Have tried to cancel subscription twice, but still got new issue. Not a problem I want when I hit "cancel"...but now I've got to deal with it.

I think that the fact that I neither want to pay for another issue nor be troubled with further issues, even if unbilled, says it all.

    Nothing to do with PCs any more

    This magazine really sucks. It now almost nothing about PCs or PC software. Its articles are unreliable and poorly written.

    Not Great

    The information in the articles is not very up-to-date. That was acceptable in a paper version, where printing and posting were involved, but not when it is electronic. There were various links mentioned during articles but it was not possible to click on those in the NOOK version. Maybe they are only for other electronic versions. They would have made a big difference as more in-depth (and up-to-date) information could have been included. I subscribed to this magazine for many years as a paper product but won't bother with this electronic version.

    FREE ISSUE LEADS TO 2 YEARS OF AGGRIVATION!

    I ordered a "free" issue that was offered 2 years ago. My bank info was old. (which I didn't think mattered as it was free...) The PC Magazine came onto my nook but could not be accessed as a message told me that my banking information was invalid...I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DELETE PC MAGAZINE OFF MY NOOK EVER SINCE!

    Not PC Magazine Anymore

    Gone is the PC. Replaced by the iPod, Galaxy, Laptop, Notebook, etc. Staying with the market, not the product, PC Magazine now covers more telephones than PC products. It covers Apple above IBM or HP. If you want a magazine that provides editorial comment on everything electronic based on advertising revenue, this is it. Staying abreast of iPhone minutia does not get any of my time. It may be of interest to some, but the lack of any focus, and the paid for coverage of everything makes it just a spam source to me. Adios PC Mag.
