    The benefit of magazines is that the articles are usually better researched. When it comes to online who breaks news first is more important than whether said news is factually correct.

    Stopped getting tech magazines (NAG, PCF) as I found the content dated; nothing I had not already or could not already get from the internet. I use to enjoy the SA Computer until they shut it down

    National Geographic = still worth buying. That is how all mags should be.

    Too many magazines are so full of ads and light on in-depth content that they should be handed out for free. I should actually be paid to look at those ads.

    I am soooo fed up with two page articles that says nothing and little we don't already know.

    What should a mag do these days to retain their readers in a connected info overload age?

    Problem with many mags. Stick to one formula. Keep doing the same things over and over.

    GQ all the way. Heck, I've met the senior copywriter of it, only reaffirmed my faith in the quality they produce.

    i used to be a magazine purchaser like you (FHM , PCF , NAG) but then a took an arrow to my wallet ... Plus the mags are so thin these days and lacking in any real content.

    i used to buy fhm, stuff, speed and sound and car

    well just stopped stuff

    speed and sound became bad ...car magazine well became bad as well and as for FHM that became schit ...from a +-200 page mag to like a 100page mag where 50 is adverts and most stories are the UK edition ...so stopped that

    used to DL alot of Emags the free ones but older issues like the UK zoo, nuts and fhm and top gear

    lately i jsut started buying the SA top gear and yet half the articles are UK ones its much cheaper and theres like 5 pages of adverts ...so its a very good mag

    the parents buy you mag every week but they are also one week good one week krap and now its almost r20 its alot

    Subscribed to Go! when I had plenty free time before my son came along.

    Now download Stuff, AppleMagazine, CAR etc on my iPad and read with kindle app.

    Too many mags especially Men's Health have too many adverts and utter useless krap articles that negate the price at the end.

    Also find myself only reading 1 or 2 articles and then paging through the rest - Best mags I have found so far are Popular Mechanics, National Geographic, Mens Fitness and Apple Magazine.
