no more PC Mag

I just found out that PC Magazine is going to stop publishing their hard copy, and go “100% digital.” I haven’t picked up a copy of PC Mag in a while, but it’s still sad to see it go. I had a subscription at one point a few years back, and it was one of the more useful magazines out there. Aside from continuing their web site, they will also continue to publish a digital version via Zinio. That’s kind of disappointing, since I’m not a big fan of Zinio’s reader. I’d really like to see them offer a Kindle version, but I haven’t seen any indication that they might do that. Looking at the Kindle magazine list, there actually aren’t any computer magazines in there at all. There are a bunch of computer-related blogs in the Kindle blog list, though. It is, of course, not hard to find tech news on the web, or on the Kindle, really, but it would be nice if even one general-audience computer magazine could survive in “dead tree” form.
