Re: In simple words
I've been getting Sports Illustrated for 30 years. I used to pay $149 a year for SYSTEMNEWS400, magazine focused on IBM AS400/i5 server and community. I wasn't paying for the paper, made no difference to me if digital or not. That magazine, even digital, is toast now. Must not be many of us left. :-)
I've was getting Computerworld and then your magazine for a long time in print, although they have always been free, guessing supported by ads for a long time. Again, conversion to digital from paper no big deal. I'd probably pay for InfoWeek, great magazine for staying in touch what is going on in industry. Same for IndustryWeek that I subscribe to. Working for manufacturer, keeps me in touch with best practices.
But things like Onion, personally probably not. Doesn't mean not funny though, I only have so much time for reading.
