Well, it looks to me as though IDG are closing down iMag.
Um... yeah. That's what it says.

That's good JemyX - you passed the first test.

It might be nice to have somebody from IDG say something though - that was the point of the post - not to have another sarcastic reply...........

greaaaaaaaaat stuff!!
less choices for me when i go into town to get a computer magazine...
now only 2 choices left...netguide and pc world.

Thats a real pity. My kids love that wee magazine.

Whats the bet that Netguide stop putting the free CD in their magarag.

Maybe now you guys will realise it's the ad dollars that keep the mags and the site alive. No ads, no mags and sites.

Say no to drugs and ad blocking software (pop ups excluded)

Heres the comment that has made up my mind never to buy Netguide........

NetGuide managing director Phil Ryan said the company was "humbled by the victory"

Talk about magnaminous

I have just done a quick add-up of the advertising pages in the two magazines:- Netguide: 144 pages (total pages) - 60 pages of adverts
iMag: 127 pages (total pages) - 23.5 pages of adverts

Not really hard to see what is best value for money, although, its probably the reason for iMags downfall

i'd love it if there was less advertising...
coz it only makes me want things lol..
i want more stories..
more stuff like..what can u do with xp..98 and sooo on..
who cares if theres a upgrade happening..
maybe 2-3 pages on "upgrades released this month"
and have letters..more of them
more interesting stuff :-)
and cd...mmm its brilliant but gotta do somethign about that...

maybe i could start my own mag :-D

*kicks myself..stop dreaming*

I had the same idea too Chris

Wonder if I could entice the yummy Belinda to write a column for me as well?
