Summary: at least the ads aren't over my head
Comment: I'm sure this is more for the tech minded; but, there's still enough in it for the rest of us. If you have time and enjoy spending it thumbing thru magazines, this one is certainly entertaining. The ads are sleek, the men are handsome and there's tidbits of info for everyone.

Summary: Need patience...
Comment: I ordered it on 9/4/08, it's been almost 6 weeks now, I still haven't gotten my first issue of the magazine. So... if you are ordering it as a present for someone, order EARLY!! Hopefully it'll be here soon :(

Summary: a tremendous disappointment
Comment: this magazine has much going for it but almost, without fail, falls far short. The articles, mostly, have the merits to be decent read and something you can find informative, unfortunately --either the editors edit out the content or the writers only write fluff-- the articles are filled with nothing of substance. For instance, in an article several years ago about the need to move to nuclear power, the author tries to disprove all other forms of power in one 6 sentence paragraph. Now if that isn't fair reporting, then I guess I don't know what an argument is. Afterwards, as most articles in Wired, it starts fluffing out instead of actually reporting anything.
In short, the reviews only look at the neatest features and not the price or quality (ie the review is nothing more than you can find by 5 minutes at Best Buy). The articles suck, give you nothing, and make you a little bit more ignorant of subject matters.

Summary: Great magazine for a great price.
Comment: I couldn't resist getting 12 issues of this magazine for $5 (there was a coupon code). Worked out well and the first issue I received was actually a NEW issue and not a previous month's that I could already purchase at the store.

Summary: Can not read it - literally - They use a tiny size 6 font everywhere to make room for more ads
Comment: While they have occasional good articles, the science and technology details are low and not what I expected.

My biggest complaint is that I can not read the magazine - literally! In order to make more room for more pages of glossy paid advertisemets they print their articles using the most tiny print font I have ever seen in any printed magazine. My eyes are fine; I read many magazines and all others with no trouble. They must be using a size 6 font or smaller!
