    Hi all,

    What all computer magazine techies here have subscribed or purchase from the stands? Whenever I goto landmark or Time out, I could in the stands the following magazines,
    Digit
    Chip
    PC Quest
    Data Quest

    I personally purchase digit whenever I go for a travel in the train or flight. Now, I am thinking of subscribing to one. Which is VFM?

    I would be looking for a magazine which enlightens on the new technologies, tips & tricks, expert reviews. CD/DVD with free stuff and games can also be considered.

    Which one techies suggest? Or if some magazine avail other thena the one above, then please do suggest.

    here are the mags that i purchased:

    Digit
    chip
    pcmag (not published on paper now)
    pcworld
    T3
    skoar (long back)
    LFY
    EFY
    PCQuest
    Data quest (long long ago)

    And one thing I learned is not to subscribe to any mag. Every monthI pick two or three mags with best content.

    i first bought chip and pc quest in december 2000 then i started to buy only chip from the following month then switched to digit later it came out
    i have read all kind of tech magazine in my college library for the last four years they
    are all more or less the same
    i only learnt about tech stuff in depth online by joining some forums other than digit
    i used to buy two or three mags sometimes for content but it is pointless to me anymore since im already aware of most of the things that were published on the mags and i can download anything i want from the internet easily
    if you want to subscribe to a mag subscribe to chip i feel they are better as for now they also seem to have stable community of people on their forum unlike here
    if you really want to learn tech stuff in depth stick to some irc and hacking forums on the internet
    i also bought skoar regularly in 2006 i really like their cd content im not much of a gamer i still use those cds to play some old games i dont know how it is now.

    thnx for the info m8..personally i thought chip magazine was christened as digit. my bad, 2 yrs back I saw both mags on the stands. Anyways, gonna subscribe in chip and if found interesting gonna subscribe.

    True on the forum part, ths forum is more interested in non-tech rather than tech. This is my personal opinion as I am dependent on many tech queries to this forum alone and found it unanswered accor to my satisfaction.
