The final edition of PC Magazine, the 25-year-running tech magazine, will be released in January of 2009. The magazine is the originator of comparative software and hardware reviews, and perhaps the first magazine about Personal Computers.
While the magazine is going away, the website, PCMag.com, is not. The editors and columnists are staying on, and will be writing for the website. You can read their full announcement here: PC Magazine Goes 100% Digital.
I’ve enjoyed reading PC Magazine for several years now, though I have never subscribed. The local library has a subscription, and I’ve checked out nearly every issue for…I’m not sure how long. It’s a little sad to see it go. Though I like the web format, where I get new content delivered to my RSS reader every day, it’s still nice to read a print magazine once in awhile. I still have PC World and Macworld, but they have a bit of a different style than PC Mag.
Well, best of luck to the transition to all of you at PC Mag. However, one word of advice: Consider a redesign of your website. It’s looking a little dated and could stand some improvement, especially since it will be your sole content vehicle.
