Great Variety of Articles

Though sensationalist,this magazine provides a variety of articles and sure to please anyone looking for a well-written magazine based on technology. Also, stop whining about the lack of iPad support; you should have checked before you pressed "buy".

I used to LOVE this Magazine!

Here's my biggest issue with this, which resulting in my canceling the magazine...

It's 90% Adds and 10 % articles and content. I understand that adds are part of magazines and are a primary method of revenue... but this is insame. I used to LOVE this magazine... ...

    Why is digital twice the cost?

    I can get one year of the printed version of Popular Science mailed to me for $1.00 an issue but the Nook version is $1.99 an issue. Why is the Nook Digital version twice the cost of the printed version? This makes no sense whatsoever. It seems to me the the printed version would cost more because of printing on paper and postage to mail it.

    Not as exciting anymore

    I loved this magazine when younger and when grandson sold magazines for school I bought this subscription. Few real articles, not exciting anymore and even had story not based on true science but opinionated articles based on political agenda.

    Cannot access what I purchased.

    I love Popular Science but I am very disappointed that I cannot access the content I purchased. This magazine, unlike Popular Mechanics, does not work on Nook for PC. I thought I would be able to access it on my iPhone 3GS, but the Nook app only works on 4/4S! Greatly disappointed in the lack of compatibility that Barnes & Noble offers with this magazine.

    Should be called "Popular Stuff"

    Too much "stuff" -- too little science. Each magazine generally has one "main article" and the remainder of the pages are either LITERAL product advertisements, or "hey, check out this cool new gadget that obviously you'll want to buy when it comes out."

    Good Magazine, Bad Service

    Good magazine but the October issue never entered my library. Despite several emails and a chat to nook staff the problem was never resolved. Canceling my subscription.

    I ready Popular Science on my Nook Color, but I prefer the Nook

    I ready Popular Science on my Nook Color, but I prefer the Nook experience throught PC app. I like the larger screen and keyboard. It's frustrating to me that Popular Science isn't available for the PC app.

    Very poor service. Unable to review it unless I give it one star.

    I have tried to cancel this subscription several times. I love the magazine but do not like how the digital edition displays on the Nook. I would have continued to buy the hard copy but there does not seem to be a way to discontinue the digital edition.
