That's just low. Next you will be telling us that you have revenue share deals for all the big software. I'll bet you got yourself some really nice toys with the money you made from Firefox and LibreOffice you recently promoted. What next? Promoting KDE or Gnome with some sweet purchase price deals?
Also, why even promote this? What is this, some kind of news site for nerds? How dare you.
Have a lttle heart would you, this stuff matters.

"and the lack of creativity in using them."

I have seen some amazing things done with 3d printers. Don't take away the massive achievements 3d printers have allowed

I build giant robots with my 3d printer. for no other reason that why not.

seconded. Agree 100%

I did some reversing on the msm windows phones. Took us 3 months to reverse the shared memory for radio interface and GPIO for the keyboards. Ahh the good old days.

I say gather the ce devices all up, dice and slice them and make art pieces out of them. Make build some semi functional cool robot sculptures. Looks nicer than in landfill and would certainly be a better use of time

"Why even delay individual articles until there's a whole magazine's worth. Why not just publish individual articles online as they become available."

Excellent idea! We should call it a web log. I'm sure we could shorten that into something punchier.

Joking aside, I do prefer the rollup content. I treat the magazine like a monthly digest and allocate 3 hours to read it all.

I love the magazine. Great content. However...

I currently have 4 unopened on my desk. Instead of the paper version, I read the pdf versions while I was out and about.
I still read the dead tree in occasionally, it is great in my bathroom, but print is dying.

Also Linux Voice guys, great job but please get some proof reading in there. Sometimes the articles are almost impossible to parse.
