A bit off topic here, but I think there's some similarities between the European magazines and the Japanese magazines - the Mac magazines in particular. I read 'MacPeople' once in a while, and there's usually a CD/DVD with featured software included. At the same time it feels like 'MacPeople' has a mission to provide a lot of app reviews, general interest interviews with celebrities, and hints/tips. The page format is also quite dense; there's a a lot of graphics and small text.
'MacPeople' also weighs in at about 200 pages per issue, costing 730 yen. The recent increase in the yen's value makes it a bit more pricey to buy in terms of dollars.
There's actually another Japanese Mac magazine, and a Linux/Unix magazine, but unfortunately I don't go to the Japanese bookstore that often so I don't see those magazines that often.
A bit off topic, but I thought it was interesting.
