    Used to buy Mens Health and Car.Now everything can be found online.
    Besides there's only so much you can read on great sex and how to get a six pack.
    There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    I totally agree with this. I used to love CAR, until the new editor took over. Since then it's been downhill all the way. I've bought TopCar a couple of times since and find it to be more informative and sometimes even entertaining to read.

    Used to buy mags but now they're too full of ads and articles are really crappy. All the pdf's are online now

    I find I get a fair amount of value from business and entrepreneurial magazines still. I wouldn't waste my time on anything news or entertainment related though...

    A clever trick these days is to wrap the mags in plastic so the potential buyer can't page through it to see if it is worth paying for. You take the thing on faith and then get home and find nothing in it worth bothering to read. That main article promoted on the cover turns out to be two pages of nothing said.
