I started using Google at the end of the 1990’s, before most people had even heard of the search engine. I really liked it’s clean interface compared to cluttered search pages like Alta vista and Yahoo. But it was Google’s uncanny knack of finding just what I was looking for that kept me using Google and I’ve been Googling ever since.

Back at the start of this decade, I don’t think anyone could have imagined how far Google would go, and there is no end in sight! They certainly deserve the number one spot for the best products, services, and technologies of the decade!


PC Magazine

PC Magazine Volume 1, Issue 1, January 1982.


I just received my last copy of PC Magazine. I had no idea this was coming. A little note came with the magazine saying this would be the last printed issue. I’m a bit sad, as I’ve subscribed to PC Magazine for about 20 years or so. It is the one magazine that I read cover to cover and I have learned so much from this magazine. PC Magazine is not going away, the owners have decided to go completely digital.

I suppose this should not come as a surprise for a tech magazine to go digital, since digital will be the future for magazines and newspapers, and eventually books as well. From what I’ve read on-line, the company is making most of it’s money with on-line revenue and will save money by dropping the print version. And of course, this is obviously a good decision for the environment.

But I will miss the printed issue. I sit in front of a computer too many hours a day already and I enjoy reading my magazines in bed. I guess I will eventually have to get a digital reader like Amazon’s Kindle. But for now, I still have PC World and a few other tech magazines. But I don’t think I’ve ever subscribed to any magazine longer than PC Magazine. I will miss it. 🙁
