FYI, they seem to have plans to go to a digital publication (no
paper) in 2012. Based on my usage of the publication in print form,
that wouldn't work too well for me. Anyone else care to weigh in?
I tried digital when PC Magazine eliminated their paper
magazine. I found it painful to read and not convenient. After
trying it for a few months, I just dropped it. I had been a reader
for probably 15-20 years.
