Am I losing the plot?

Main Cover Item story about HDTV's and Blu-ray players..

I thought it was getting bad enough when they started reviewing cellphones!

Can we have item's about computers please..?

X2 I don't think I'm renewing my subscription this year once it runs out

Even though its called PCworld its more of a "Technology" based mag rather than computer based.

Me too. I am NOT renewing my subscription either for that reason. More information on Computers and Software programs is what i am looking for. Ken Gracia

I think there's only so much original content on computers you can rite about these days. I'm quite happy to see a branch into other technology areas especially as they killed of FFWD

I stopped buying it last year when it was all cameras.And what computer news they had was copied from the USA edition of PCW of three months previous

Computers! maybe so paulw but there is certainly a lot of software updates and new software programs are being invented all the time. I have told quite a few of my elderly new computer purchaser's about types of software they can buy for their PC's and they can do this and that with it. They can't believe what is out there.

Personally I don't mind the HDTV articles (I find them interesting :)), however I do think the magazine has decreased in quality somewhat over the past 12 months :(. Hopefully the team can fix it and get it back up to the excellent standard it used to be :thumbs:.

I used to get PCW and PCAuthority but cancelled PCW over a year ago for the reasons mentioned above. PCAuthority isn't bad but it would be better for Aussies.

I'm still subscibing, and reasonably happy to. Could do with less of the smart/cell phone/TV stuff though, and more reviews/tests on PC bits and pieces.
I must admit with all the non-computer stuff in it, it's not taking very long to read.

Leave the reviews of Blu-ray players and HDTV TV sets to TONE magazine.

I too am cancelling my subscription. It just seems to be more ads, more non-computer articles and overall lower quality than it used to be.

Disappointing really.

Totally agree, also too many adverts,and not enough simple technical advice that us oldies need to understand this technology.

I'm the same. I stopped my subscription a few years ago as I could see then where it was going. I leave it until I see it in the shop, have a scan & sometimes buy it. I get PC user, APC or PC Authority most months after a scan in the shop. Sometimes all 3.
I find that all the mags have virtually the same stuff in them. I find the Aussie the ones the most useful tho

Theirs Nothing Wrong With PC World Magazines, I Like That They Include Other Things (Apart From The Ads)

PC Authority is awesome IMHO; have posted on here before saying that it seems to me that PCW caters more to the casual 'don't know much about computers, but would like to know a little about tech', whereas most non-IT people would be bored shirtless by PCA.

I read it for the reviews:p

Yea, I've seen the Aussie PC mags.

They're much more thorough and geeky.:D
