    Today we have a new Mac Magazine. Looks very promising, also the price free & it's online.

    interesting to see Matthew Powell in there as the Editor.

    Certainly space for a good Aussie Mac mag, as Macworld is to much of a rehash of Macworld US for me (since I get US via Zinio I don't find much to read in the aussie version).

    Online a smart way to go as well.

    Good luck to them.

    have to say a quick flick through looks good. Like the idea free but $20 for a download version (similar to Zinio) so you can read offline and print if needed.

    Wow, that's not very good value. $20 per issue to download or to subscribe?
    You can get a nice printed art magazine for $20 that has been printed professionally.

    yeah, looks excellent. Anything that continues to promote Macs is a good thing.

    The pdf version is nice and clear but the web version is rather fuzzy, at least at the screen resolution I have available at the moment.

    It would probably be ok on a 24" screen but it's not much good on a laptop with a 1280x800 resolution screen...

    Why is it every mag that launches chooses to have its own forum. Surely it would be easily to just align with an established forum like MTAU?
