    Which IT Magazines Are You Subscribed To ?

    after a quick nose in WH Smiths at lunch time looking at the vast array of PC and IT magazines I thought I would ask which ones you guys are subscribed to or pickup once a month/week and why ?

    Me personally I go for PC Format, Custom PC and the odd weekly edition of Computer Active

    Totally seconded - time spent reading the various blogs/news sites every morning is a much better way of staying informed

    I just have an RSS feed to Tom's Hardware news and PC Pro news. I get the odd mag now and again if it's got something interesting in.

    None, Do not see the point when the info is atleast 3 months out of date, and everything I need, or that is covered in the magazine is freely available online

    None. I occasionaly buy one to scan through to try and keep up to date with what's happening in the big bad world outside these four walls! We used to get Network Weekly(?) delivered here, but that stopped a while ago (seems publishing has been suspended)

    I was given a subscription to PC Pro when I left my last job and it was really good. Don't think I'll be renewing though. I find there is a lot of information that is not what I want to know. Might try another though...

    I have a nice routine on a Saturday morning, a visit to the local cafe for breakfast and a cup of tea (or two) and a read of Micromart. I also still get Computing magazine, from a log running subscription.

    I also get a few RSS feed, including Mozilla, Microsoft, Adobe and Dameware. But the one I'd say I read the most is Sophos Labs.

    Closest I have is an RSS feed for TheRegister set up on my Kindle. I do occasionally buy computer magazines, but find they're usually too general to be of any real interest to me.

    I pick up Linux Format on a semi regular basis, tutorials on things I might not think to try in the first place and some useful ideas. True there's very little I couldn't find online with some digging, but it's a nice read.
