    Mac Magazine Subscriptions. What Subscriptions You Recommend? Or Currently Subscribed to?

    Yes I know you can find and read a lot more information on the internet now a days and some people really see no need to subscribe to a magazine subscription.
    Anywayz.... I am subscribed to MacLife and I enjoy reading the monthly magazine that I receive in the mail.
    What other subscriptions out there would you recommend for Mac reading? or if your subscribed to any that you think are worth checking out? Let me know! :)

    Physical Magazines? None.

    Between here, Macworld, MacUser, TUAW and AppleInsider, that is more than enough info.

    Agreed. You can find more up to the date info on the web than in magazines.

    Yes you can find more information on the internet but just like the OP said there are still some interesting articles written in magazines. That being said I would rather just go to the library and read any magazines that seem interesting as opposed to subscribing to one in particular.

    And, most of those magazines have the same articles on the web.

    This subscription does not come with a CD.

    This is for new subscriptions and renewals. If you want to add a year to your current subscription, please make sure your name and address are EXACTLY as they currently are with the publisher. They will then add another year to your subscription when they get it.

    My household has a subscription to Macworld magazine. I'd recommend it if a physical magazine is what you want.

    This thread makes me wonder if there are any physical magazines about Mac OS X and stuff in the netherlands...

    I haven't come across any of them though... too bad. Sometimes I like reading physical magazines aswell.

    I would bet a good chunk of the individual subscribers to MacLife or Macworld got theirs by registering their iPods, iPhones or Macs with Apple. With the exception of some brief gaps, this has kept me with a pretty continuous subscription to both over the last few years.

    It's reading things like this that makes me realise how lucky I am to live in a country such as the UK.

    Yep I agree. Everything published in magazines is now ****ing late compared to the news published on internet.

    However this is my favorite as well. And it's still more pleasant to read on paper than on an screen. Whatever 27ish screen you get lol

    Well, yes you're right , cause when I was in London , I quickly visited the Apple Store there. We dont have any official Apple stores in the netherlands , just some premium resellers! Im quite jealous ... :(

    I subscribe to Macworld magazine.

    I used to also subscribe to Mac Addict back in the day. The CD's full of games, aps, demos and plugins were awesome. I miss that magazine.

    Ohhh you make me remember the time we were child -that was in the 90s before internet- and I was waiting so badly for the postman to deliver this magazine with the free CD inside. Now with the web there is no savor anymore, everything is available immediately... :rolleyes:

    MacWorld and MacLife.

    To be honest its nice to be able to sit in the lazyboy disconnect a bit and read a magazine or newspaper.

    I have a Mac Tech subscription, but that magazine is aimed more at the Mac developer / administrator than your casual Mac user.

    Mac | Life is my magazine of choice. I found MacWorld to be pretty boring, rarely running any useful articles.

    BTW I ordered a subscription for $5 late august, but the first issue hasn't arrived yet. :mad: I expect it will show up soon though.
