What are your favorite magazines?

PC Magazine - because it keeps me on top of new computing technologies and the business of hardware.
Business 2.0 - because it keeps me on top of technology related business.

Wired and Fortune are also good choices.

I also subscribe to two newsletters by CBS MarketWatch.


Bambi Francisco's Net Sense and Frank Baranko's Internet Daily. Again to keep me up to date on business.

Alot of this reading also affects my stock buying decisions.

Fast Company has been heavy on the rotation of late.

I'd like to add an optional question. If your favorite magazines posted their entire content free on their websites, would you still buy the mag in print? This is a sampling of how some mags treat online content availability:

PC World:entire contents free (http://www.pcworld.com/magazine/index/0,00.asp)

Fast Company: entire contents free, availability slightly delayed after publication (http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/)

Business 2.0: first few hundred words of each article available, used as teaser to push subscriptions (http://www.business2.com/archives/mag/0,1059,426,00.html)

As for myself, I'll probably take the online delay and read the stories from the Fast Company website, unless I'm traveling.

In the UK there is one called Computer Active. That's got news, reviews, main feature etc.

Computer Buyer is pretty good as well, don't know if either are available in the US though.
