My nephew gets a print copy of something called "gameinformer".  Google doesn't say anything about being tied to a sony account, so I assume that he intentionally subscribed to it.  No idea why anyone cares about what marketing wants to say about anything digital at least 3 months (or whatever the pressdate/delivery date is) before launch.

I guess he'll have to learn on his own.

/long, long ago I loved me my computer magazines
//even during the age of bbs
///internet (even usenet) was the death of them (to me anyway, they survived a bit longer)
/V but seeing a 1/4" "Computer Shopper" in 2000 was pretty sad

The few fashion mags I've flipped through (doctor's waiting room, scanning for babes, etc) seemed to be mostly ads for cosmetics, accessories and the like. How will digitizing the mag make up for losing that revenue stream?

That magazine is always in the top ten in the US.

I'm certain he has a tablet.  He might even have a tablet just for that.

I think that's the magazine that Gamestop automatically gives you when you sign up for their membership club.

Like, oh my god, Stacy.  Like, how do you read this paper,...thing.  Like, the ads aren't even animated.

I know a few not teenage women who have signed up for Teen Vogue, mainly because their news reporting this is the most recent headline on their website "Understanding the Fox News Propaganda Machine".  I know the print edition of most magazines probably aren't going to last (a few might, there are advantages of physical copies that don't require power to read)  but the magazine itself seems to have some good reporting

Who has the guts to break this news to Roman Polanski?

Agreed.  Those things provided endless amounts of bathroom reading entertainment in their heyday.

That's what I use The Economist for.

Ah, that brings back memories. We had a local weekly, Byte Buyer (later forced to change its name when threatened with litigation by Byte Magazine) that was almost pure computer ads. Back then there was a computer shop on every corner, or so it seemed. Funny how we're now awash in undreamt-of amounts of tech and yet the computer store has vanished like the tv antenna.

Yep.  Lauren Duca does excellent work for them.  Farkers might recognize her from a fight with the Sentient Bowtie attached to Tucker Carlson where, despite inviting her on his show to talk politics, told her to stop talking politics and stick to fashion.

Or from Pharma Bro Martin Skreli being extraordinarily rapey and gross and obsessing about her online.

Probably also doesn't help when they're sending free copies to 30-year-olds. True story.

/I also get Seventeen. No idea why.

Well yeah, look at that date.  2000 is the same year Newegg started up...Newegg starting followed by the downfall of the computer store isn't a big surprise.

I'm in the market for a decent TV antenna...OTA is digital and doesn't suck ass these days...it's actually a better quality picture than my local cable company with a third of the channels for 100% less a month.

...Like their target audience would pay to visit a website?
