Hey, i just registered my new 17PB today, and I was given a free one susbsription to various Apple magazines.. Naturally, I picked MacWorld...

The interesting part was, when I registered, the website gave me an option of either an electronic copy of the publication or a hard copy of the magazine delivered by snail mail...

I was adventurous (given that it was a freebie and I already had the hard copy subscription to MacWold), I chose the electronic one...

Wow! immediately upon registration, I was sent an email to dowload the Zinio application used to view the magazine. Upon dowloading, I opened Zinio and, guess what, the November issue had arrived. It looked and feel like the hard copy.. and with the 17in PB, viewing the electronic version was effortless.. No more mail!

I only wished they had the Globe and Mail newspaper electronically as well.. I would definitely prefer the electronic copy !!

I signed up for a free trial via electronic copy as well, but I never did get the free issue.

So...what...was MacAddict not available?
LOL

MacAddict rocks compared to Macworld, I agree completely with you!

Rodkin,

Nope, reading online (i.e. globe website is not the same as reading the paper)...

Apparently, you can get the exact print of the G&M electronicially with this site http://www.newsstand.com/?nsemc=nsiconvg01

Unfortunately, it's for PCs only not mac

Mac addict used to be good, I got it from 1999 till 2001.

But by 2001, it was just superficial garbage.

Unfortunately, it seems Macworld is joining it, but I think my Macworld subscription doesn't expire till November 2006 or something,

I too got Macworld electronically. I too wish it had been Macaddict. The latter used to beat the pants off the former in my opinion. Each to his own I guess eh guys?

MacAddict may be "superficial garbage" but it still beats MacWorld hands down IMHO.

And why the heck would anyone want to read the Globe and Mail (Grope and Flail)...either online or in print? Especially with the National Post easily available pretty much everywhere? :confused: ;)
