Why oh why did I even bother to resubscibe to this piece of rubbish?? Stuff.co.nz has better info and that is mostly wrong - at least stuff is free - I was foolish enough to think that after a 2 year hiatus that things might have changed - nope - same cr*p different date.
I received my latest magazine on a Saturday morning - finished it with in 20min after reading it twice in case there was anything of interest I missed. Same ads, same layout, same articles. Where is the innovation? New ideas? New format? I thnk the biggest change was they moved from CD to DVD. Only problem is the cr*p they put on there is the same cr*p they had before, just more of it.

Come on guys - change something!!

Just in case anyone out there is even thinking about subscribing, DONT waste your money.

Obviously there is a market for it, otherwise they'd be out of business.

Personally I don't subscribe to it... everything I need is on the 'net'.

Yeah, a bit too glossy and it just wouldn't scrunch properly, maybe fire starters?

I concur - I am one. I was stupid enough to be lured by their free VOIP phone. I did like that though so not all is lost.
Oh well it could have been worse, I could be crying into my Speights instead of going to the WAIKATO - wellington final.
GO MOOLOO!!! (yep I am bringing it up again - OT but this is MY post LOL)
