Like most things that can be reproduced online Mongoplus, I think it's just changing times, some magazines probably did fail and go under, presumably because they failed to spot the potential of the internet, whereas others grabbed the opportunity with both hands. It's like books, although we see a healthy supply in some large newsagents, their sales must inevitably have been affected by the online presence.

Yeah, I've kind of moved online for my tips & tricks fixations, but the last magazine that I bought was a PC World Magazine Windows Tips oriented compilation.

Can't really say I'm surprised at the results, does make me wonder though how the existing computer magazines are still surviving - suffice to say they also have an online presence though I can't understand why someone would pay £5 for a magazine when most of the information is available online :)
