    What IT magazines do you read?

    I've been reading PCPro for a few years now, but I'm getting a bit bored by it and the subscription's running out soon. I fancy a change.

    What does everyone else here read? Any decent computer magazines worth subscribing to?

    I also read zdnet online, but I'd still like a printed magazine to read on the bus/in bed etc.

    PCFormat, Computer Shopper and Computer Weekly.

    PCFormat has gone a bit childish recently, but computer shopper has some interesting articles. MacBiter was good, but he died in October!

    None anymore. While at Uni I used to read PC Pro, PWC, Linux format, Linux journal, PC Plus, Acorn User, Computer Shopper and PC Format.

    It was very heavy to carry around when they all came out!

    I haven't bought any for 8+ years now. I don't think any of them offer anything that can't be found online!

    Thanks. Computer Weekly seems popular. I've subscribed to PCPro for five years now, but it just seems to be the same sort of thing coming round every so often. It's probably me, but I'm getting less and less useful info from it each time.

    Are there any decent online mags (free or subscribed) worth looking at regularly?

    Re: What IT magazines do you read?

    PcPro & Computing through work
    Personal Computer World and Windows IT Pro personally

    PCW is OK but wouldnt recommend Windows IT Pro - very american orientated and you dont get a lot of content for your money. Now and again it makes up for it though

    Used to buy Micro Mart every week but some of the articles were absolute rubbish - barely about computing at all. And it was costing £8 a month

    Linux Format, plus the others when I get hold of a copy, sometimes I pick-up computer hardware magazines, have bought Micromart but only when Karoshi was in it

    I also read though computer weekly and all the others that arrive at work.

    Probably because we get a free subscription (Same with Computing, IT Week, Information Age and CRN!)
