Geeks With Blogs
IT Digest - Ingenious Tejas's Digest Blog

I was on Robert's  blog today when I saw he has linked to a entry written by Jason Mauss, I was thinking on these issue a while back ( since I entered the blog world) and could not really see a point where I would be happy to pay for expensive magazines where mostly the only new content I was going to find would be their advertisements and other crap not worth my money.

I used to buy few selected magazines for their technical content which was not easily availble on the websites, reviews and articles on latest technologies, special interviews and some great stories, but with increasing using of blogs and other similar content, I don't get anythign new in the magazines now a days, all the stories are quite old , technical content is not new to me and nor are the stories, as I said before the new new thing I see is the advertisements. Even for the latest gadgets  there are so many new websites and blogs that discuss on it.

The only thing that I am missing now is the quality of paper I get when I buy an expensive magazine! Now magazine similar content is stored in my .PST file using Newsgator and is very easily searchable too. Does anybody has any other good reasons why I should buy magazines or why are they still buying magazines?
