Right.<br><br>Part of the change was when MW bought MU, in order to satisfy and to keep MUs subscibers, MW made a comprimise on its layout and overall mag design.<br><br>Still many MU readers did not resubscribe and MW lost readers to MacAddict. Then insult to injury - In order to make up for the lost readership MW then redesigned the mag again to be more cost effective to print, thus causeing more loss of readers.<br><br>This catapoleted the mag into its current condensed state.<br>Shorter aritcles and reviews.<br>Changed the fonts and font sizes.<br>Cram more onto one page instead of haveing open spaces.<br><br>End result;<br>Thinner and cheeper to print, Less pages which meant less readers.<br><br>MacAddict.<br>I just have the hardest time to read that rag.<br>Blue type on dark red.<br>Red type on dark green<br>Yellow type on orange<br><br>Dang enough with the colors already.<br><br>
The colors in MacAddict doesn't bother me too much, but the lack of quality content does. the constant self-congratulatory attitude, constant references to staff members, childish pranks, and unprofessional writing style grew old on me - at least enough that I no longer subscribe. I enjoy picking up a copy in the bookstore once in a while, but I'll never pay for it. Mac Addict's web site is possibly the only one worse than MacWorld's. It seems it hasn't been updated other than the front page in years!<br><br>Quite frankly, the entire Mac magazine universe sucks right now. It's too bad, because I actually prefer a well put-together magazine to a web site any day!<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site
