    Is it just me, or has the content of Macworld gotten a bit less interesting since the introduction of Macworld Insider?

    I used to find good stuff there every week, but lately I just can't find anything. I have the feeling that the content there was more appealing and useful a couple of months ago.

    Or perhaps it's just that there isn't too much mac stuff to report about?

    ... or, perhaps I'm just a bit tired of so much mac stuff being reported....:confused:

    Anyway... what's your take on this?

    cheers!

    I stopped reading computer magazines years ago. They just cannot compete with the intarweb. By the time the magazines hit the newstand, its already outdated.

    I found, since Karen Haslam became the main editor of Macworld UK, that it's content has started to decline in quality, whether it be articles of interest, or mistakes in the copy/images (such as spelling errors, pixellation of images, etc). The only articles that have consistently been good are the ones on the very last page, by Andy Inhatko.

    Even though when we get the magazines, I already know most of the stuff, it's still enjoyable to read through the main articles, such as the release of new hardware or software. It's just more refreshing than reading it all online.

    Paper magazines, especially tech magazines are out of date the moment they're printed. Online sites, i.e., internet, are more update and accurate.

    I found the Macworld was always boring to me. They just made articles about new releases instead of talking about other issues that are more fun to read about like more critical articles. I usually go to PCWorld to read articles. They have a lot of articles on Macs on there as well, but the comments that follow those articles are not pretty.
