I used to buy the computer mags for Amiga, Atari St, even as far back as BBC micro. It's certainly how I got my first copies of Bryce, Poser, etc. And faster than typing programmes in on the BBC ! Now I just subscribe to New Scientist. I might buy the occasional photography magazine if the cover grabs my attention. Most of what I want to read now is free and online but in the summer there's nothing better than sitting outside with a magazine. I have no idea what US magazines are like for comparison.
