    5-0 out of 5 stars Restoring Dignity and Nobility to the term "Hacker"
    O'Reilly Publishing has been on an almost solo crusade it seems to elevate the word "hacker" to its former dignity and nobility.

    The media has co-opted the term and used it for any variety of malicious computer programmer or Internet malcontent. I myself am guilty of "mis-using" the term and have even written that the hacker purists should just get used to it (see What Is In A Name?.

    But, the roots of hacking are more benign. Hacking is about being clever, not malicious. Pure hackers set out to be ingenious, not notorious. The O'Reilly Hacks series of books is devoted to this interpretation of hacking and now true hackers who just want to know how things work under the hood and tinker with them to create new inventions of their own have a magazine to help them.

    The beginning contains a lot of newsy sort of tid bits that describe various hacking projects or hacker tales, but don't include the complete details. For example, there are a few photos and a brief rundown of the home monorail system Kim Pederson built in his backyard. Five years, $4,000 (USD), and 300 feet of track later his monorail glides around his backyard with ease.

    The middle section provides a handful of full-fledged projects, complete with an inventory of the materials and tools necessary, full details for how to construct it and illustrations to guide you.

    If you are interested in hacking and learning how to convert and modify gadgets and gizmos to do your bidding, check out this magazine. If you have done some of your own hacking projects already, contact the editor to see about publishing it in an upcoming edition of Make.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a geeky blend of all my favorite mags
    I just received the premiere issue of Make Magazine from O'Reilly yesterday. Let me just say this mag is a geek's dream come true. It's not a magazine about coding. Heck, I'm not sure if calling it a magazine is even accurate. It's more of a journal or zine (but with higher production values). A geek quarterly, if you will.

    For example... the premiere issue features an article on aerial photography. Not geeky enough for you? Ok, how about aerial photography accomplished by rigging up a camera to a kite? Still not geeky enough? Throw in a homemade mechanism for triggering the shutter from the ground. The best part is, this isn't just an article full of theory. These guys DO this stuff. The article is full of pictures, plans and step by step instructions on how to make it happen.

    That's not all... other How-To articles include: making a 5-in-1 network cable, making a magnetic stripe reader, XM Radio hacks, tips and tricks for your IPOD, gmail hacks, IPAQ hacks and a lot more. This puppy is just under 200 pages of D-I-Y technology.

    Still not geeky enough? How about an article on how to make your own railgun, using magnets, a ruler and some steel bearings? There's also an article about hacking robotic dogs to sniff out toxic waste. This is geek goodness in all it's glory.

    If you like reading 2600 (the hacker quarterly), Maximum PC and Scientific American, roll them all into one and you have Make (but without the attitude of Maximum PC and the leetspeak of 2600). I'm gonna subscribe!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A geeky winner!
    Make: Technology on Your Own Time is not a book... exactly. It's a mook, which is a hybrid of a magazine and a book. It's a magazine, but not a typical one. In my initial perusal, I think I wasn't high on it because I'm not into home projects because I don't have time.

    I read it closely. Shortly, I became engaged and enjoyed reading the articles. Though I don't plan to make anything (like I'm going to put a monorail in my backyard-yes, this is a real project), the stories and the writing drew me in.

    I like geeky things, but I'm not a geek in terms of building computers from scratch and hacking gadgets. These are the kinds of projects covered in the mook. The premiere issue includes the following projects: magnetic stripe card reader, camera on a kite, $14 video camera stabilizer or buy one, and a 5-in-1 network cable.

    The quarterly mook has a Web site with things not covered in the print edition as well as a blog. Its design is clever with color codes on the cover and side for the major projects. The initial issue has 192 pages of quality paper and color printing to justify $8.74 an issue.

    The mook has a homemade yet professional feel and has "home improvement" style fonts to add to its DIY (do-it-yourself) theme. The photos give the impression they're taken by average people and not photographers. They're good quality and complement the articles.

    People who don't have time to build and like technology will find it an engrossing read thanks to the personable writing and instructions that don't make eyes glaze. Few new magazines make it past the first year or so. Make should thrive for years to come.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic guide to cool projects
    I've been waiting for this magazine all my life. Finally, it's here. There are enough ideas in here to keep me busy for the next several months, and even if I don't plan on building everything in it, it's a lot of fun just reading about how other people are making stuff.

    It's more like a paperback book than a magazine, and there are very few ads in it, which means there's lot of room for plenty of do it yourself projects. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Magazine For ALL Animal Lovers!!
    This magazine is great for the animal lover; fantastic photography, amazing facts, and fun activities! This magazine has absolutely no advertisements and is handy to have around if you have an animal report or project (it has facts that I have never ever known before!)to look up in for information. This magazine has beautifully illustrated diagrams and full color photographs! A DEFINATE MUST-HAVE FOR THE ANIMAL LOVER!!!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed
    We never receive the zoo books, so I am not sure how they are illustrated. My son is very disappointed. I hope no one else orders from Zoo books, and if you have I hope you have not had the same problems as us. I have never had any problems with any of the merchants from Amazon.com. Hopefully since I never receive the Magazine as promise after emails and phone calls to them, they can at least reimburse us for the purchase amount.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine!
    This is a wonderful magazine for a number of reasons: there's no advertising, it has wonderful photography, and in-depth information on the animals profiled in each issue. The language is simple enough for younger readers to enjoy, and colorful enough to keep older readers interested. Anyone with a love of animals would be delighted with this magazine. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The only magazine that I keep back copies of!
    As a professional graphic designer and illustrator, I read a lot of the trade magazines, but Communication Arts is the only one I keep back copies of. I have had a subscription to this magazine since my art school days and I still look forward to receiving it in the mail. The magazine is beautifully designed with clean type and the feature articles are always interesting. It is well worth the cost of subscription. Just get it! You won't be sorry.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Important to know what you want
    If you are looking for a design mag with flip-through layouts or edgy underground images, this is probably not the publication for you. If you're on the search for pretty pictures and design inspiration, you'd probably like one or two of the annuals (i.e., Design, Illustration, Photography or Interactive), but not a whole subscription.

    Now then, if you don't mind reading and are looking for contemporary and practical insights into the world of commercial print design, CA comes highly recommended. Its value very nearly overshadows its cost, and if you can't afford it, it's well worth harassing family members for a gift subscription.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The essential tool for working commercial artists
    As a working illustrator and designer, I have been a subscriber to CA since 1983, and own copies that date back to my art school days in the late 70's. I consider this magazine an invaluable tool for maintaining an edge in the ever-changing commercial art market. Not only does CA provide in depth interviews with the top design agencies, illustrators, designers and photographers working today, but it helps me keep up to date with current trends in design.

    The five regular issues are great, but the three annuals that present a comprehensive gallery of the very best in photography, illustration, design and media for each year have provided me with untold inspiration, practical ideas for problem solving, and have helped me to strive for greater creativity. As a reference tool for style and trends, CA is always featuring the absolute best the market has to offer.

    Printed on heavy, gloss stock of near archival quality, every issue is a treasure that more than justifies the price. While each new issues serves as a benchmark for what is happening in the commercial art world, the old issues become time capsules that never seem to loose their appeal. I still delight in reviewing articles and images from 20+ years ago.

    CA is a good, but slightly pricey diversion for anybody casually interested in art, photography and advertising. It is a GREAT and invaluable tool for every working professional commercial artist, and worth every penny spent tenfold.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Expensive Eye-Candy
    Visually stunning mag, frequently used for inspiration by graphic designers. Fixated on "new" and "award-winning", at the expensive of "good" design or socially-relevant design. The articles on professional practice are sometimes shallow, sometimes obvious. The style guide for people who manufacture desire.

    Fantastic collection of all areas of graphic design. A must for the reference library. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best for Linux
    This is the absolute best Linux mag out there, and can be read by new users and professionals both. Linux is a powerful and versatile OS and this magazine highlights its applications, inner workings, and any other information the average Linux user would want. Overall, a well written periodical with valuable information in every issue.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best
    I have been a Linux Journal subscriber since 1996. I look forward to its arrival in my snail mail box every month. It contains articles for varing levels of understanding, and is very informative. Some just right for me, and some of it is over my head. It introduces programs that I didn't know existed, new products, and instructions on how to do things. Don't listen to those who say that this is a lousy publication. The Linux Journal is after all an engineering style journal. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Like reading Dr Dobbs Journal
    Only its about Linux..

    For the same reasons I hate reading Dr. Dobbs the text format is
    hard to read, lots of ads about vendors nobody really cares to hear about, and lots of yet another vendor leveraging something on the community.

    I prefer Linux Format to this magazine.. Its chocked full of more stuff and sometimes comes with a CD full of slackware 8.1 and other utilities.. Its what I'm getting myself for Christmas..

    3-0 out of 5 stars Shares the strengths and weaknesses of Linux
    Linux is a very versatile OS, but it requires more technical know-how than Windows to use it well. The same could be said of this magazine. It covers a wide variety of Linux related topics, from kernel programming to user applications. This breadth is a double-edged sword: I usually find about half the articles useful and half I have little interest in. The instructions almost always require some relatively sophisticated knowledge of Linux system administration, and sometimes assume one already has that knowledge.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff
    This is a great magazine with information for every linux user, newbie's will learn, and guru's will delight. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Technology Review: MIT's Magazine of Innovation covers the world of practical technology, with special emphasis on biotechnology, nanotechnology, communications, and information. The coverage is geared toward professional scientists, technology executives, and educators as well as readers with a general interest, if not a background, in science. This broad approach makes it an excellent source of information for lay readers, while professionals will find the magazine particularly helpful for spotting marketing trends and providing ideas for further research. Features are consistently well-written, relatively brief, and reinforced by an abundance of data presented in useful graphics and diagrams. Regular departments include reports on prototypes from research labs, the latest news from the business sector, the implications of technology on everyday life, explanations of how technology works, and an index of people and organizations mentioned in the magazine. Other features include interviews with leading scientists, researchers, and educators, profiles of cutting-edge companies, and regular columnists scanning the horizon for the next breakthrough. --Shawn Carkonen ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars An Executive Summary of New Technology
    I've picked up a few issues of Technology Review, but like other reviewers here I found it somewhat lightweight and unstatisfying- specially givern the stiff cover price.

    The real audience for this magazine, I think, is the company CEO or investor looksing of a quick summary and review of emerging technologies. There's not enough here to really bring you up to speed, but there is enough to get you pointed in a direction where you might want to investigate something further. So for that audience, four stars. For everyone else... two.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You think you hate science? Nonsense!
    I really enjoy this magazine. I am college-educated and although I do not have a background in science and technology, I appreciate a magazine that is written so intelligently, being neither so simplistic, nor so erudite so as to be unintelligible for those not in science or technology. MIT Tech is geared towards those in the field, but takes into account that it may have other readers. For those of you who think that science and medicine and technology are boring - wake up! it is everywhere, every day, in everything that you do. Maybe you just don't realize to what extent - I know I didn't. You will enjoy the short, concise articles. There are lots of pictures, diagrams, charts and small articles, easy to browse and easy to pick up and read a quick article five minutes here, five minutes there. Check it out!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lightweight and unfufilling.
    MIT Technology Review initially seemed to have potential, but the articles lack background, depth, and an opportunity for additional study. It's very unfufilling and not worth subscribing to. I would suggest Discover or Scientific American as much better option.

    For example, a recent issue featured the "40MPG SUV," and discussed various ways automobiles could increase fuel efficiency using (more or less) existing technologies. The article lacked background: What is the impetus for a crankshaft-based engine and why is this design so dominant? (Versus, say, a rotary engine?) The article lacked depth: If abandoning the use of a crankshaft would result in 30% increase of fuel efficiency *why* aren't manufacturers actively exploring this? (Maybe interview a research engineer at the big 4?) And there was no bibliography for other reading. Links to researchers' web sites? Further explanation on engine physics? Teasers on experimental models?

    Finally, their subscription fulfillment sends you back issues to accelerate your subscription expiration. For example, I subscribed in late November, but received four back issues.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Cutting Edge Tech- the next generation
    This is a very informative overview (most of the intriguing items are the short bulletins on developing technologies.) I'm interested in technology, but not a scientist or engineer myself. So being able to follow the writing about concepts that are quite removed from my experience makes this a mag I'll definitely be renewing.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ahead of the curve
    I don't read this magazine nearly as much as I should. The thing that impresses me is that it covers diferent technologies BEFORE they hit the market. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty pictures but lightweight information
    You'll love the bright glossy photos of N. American garden birds and plants (I do) but don't expect to find in-depth birding or gardening information in Birds and Blooms. Like all of the magazines from Reiman Publications, it targets the down-home and down-to-earth crowd and lacks conspicuous advertising (except for other Reiman products or tours, and the goods in its "country store"). For those who wish to indulge their interest in their gardens' creatures, but not get very in-depth, it is a relaxing magazine as it doesn't require a higher reading level or familiarity with species' scientific names. But if you want advanced information or advice on gardening or birding, you should look to other periodicals. I find this to be a great gift for loved ones who, because of age or physical condition, are not able to be as active in the garden as they once were. The colorful photos (many are stock, some are sent in by readers) make it an enjoyable magazine for all ages.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun for the Backyard Birder or Gardener!
    Birds and Blooms is a bi-monthly magazine (6 issues per year) for backyard birders and gardeners. It has a standard 8x10 1/2 inch format. Each issue has about 65 pages. For birders, there are articles on species of birds that you might find in your back yard, what to feed birds, how to house them, simple projects you can make for the birds in your yard, a question and answer column, and lots of pictures. For gardeners, there are articles on what plants to get, how to care for them, gardening projects, and ideas for landscaping. (Birds and Blooms addresses decorative gardening, not vegetable gardening.) And there are lots of big colorful pictures of both plants and birds. I am more of a bird-lover than a gardener myself. I especially like the "Bird Tales" feature in which readers recount funny and fascinating behavior that they have observed in their avian neighbors. That alone would be worth the price of the subscription to me. If you are into birdhouses or elaborate bird feeders, Birds and Blooms seems to always have some articles showcasing unusual birdhouses and feeders, as well as an annual competition for both. For those who like puzzles, there is a word find in every issue, as well as a find-the-hidden-acorn for which you can win prizes. There is no advertising in Birds and Blooms.

    Fun and facts for those who like to watch or feed birds in their own yard (or apartment balcony) and for people who enjoy flower gardening!

    4-0 out of 5 stars great pictures
    I love this magazine for it's beautiful pictures. It has wonderful tips for attracting birds to your yard, what to feed them, how to repel the pest species, etc. The gardening pictures and information are fantastic too. There is a lot of input showcasing prizewinning flowers,backyard bird sightings, bird house building and other outdoor projects from the subscribers. I decided to have it delivered so my 4yr old and I could enjoy the pictures over and over. ... Read more

    A great magazine for self-reliant living.Neither preachy nor superficial, this gives you a good grounding in how to be self-reliant.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Getting better
    When I first subscribed to Mother (as fans refer to it) it was an excellent back-to-the-earth journal inspired by the flight of so many 1960s people back to the earth, to rural communities, and to a kind of self-sufficiency. It was pretty much a handbook foir the beginning farmer, homesteader (rural or urban) or communitarian. But during the 1980s and 90s Mother took a very different turn.

    Gardening and self-sufficiency became, well, fashionable, for want of a better word and Mother was transformed into a sort coffee table book for yuppie wannabe farmers. Gone were practical articles on recycling animal waste, replaced by colorful spreads with little practical information of any kind. I dropped my subscription as did many other old-timers.

    A few years ago Mother rediscovered its original roots. It's still a thin, glossy mag rather than the thick, plain paper handbook of self-sufficiency it once was, but it's getting better. I haven't resubscribed but at least I buy the occasional issue now.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as it used to be
    TMEN used to be fabulous, full of articles on self-sufficiency. Then it turned into a yuppie rag, full of ads for credit cards and expensive vehicles. Now, slowly, it is returning to its former, true self. Continue on the path, Mother; you are heading in the right direction.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I want more
    Dear Mother, I have been a loyal subscriber for the last 3 or 4 years and have enjoyed your magazine but.....
    I have purchased some of your older magazines from used book stores and found a lot more info in them. I realize the price of the magazine is low to attract more subscribers but I'd rather pay more and get more. I'd like to see you charge twice as much and do twice as many articles on do it yourself farm projects etc. A major problem some companies encounter regarding cashflow is that they often try to get involved with too many external projects. I don't believe the magazine has any obligation to fund anything other than producing a well researched and well written rural living magazine. Which you do. I'm only hoping that you are not wasting valuable funds (funds you could be putting into fantastic articles) championing green causes. Please leave that to those who don't have better things to do with their time and money. I'm looking at an issue from July/Aug 1982 and WOW, is it packed with great how to articles, country recipes etc. I love this style of magazine but please, please, please, cut out any waste, charge more and provide more.

    One of the few excellent Java magazines widely available. Recommended for all levels, but like with other magazines, the more advanced levels do not get as much coverage. If there is only one Java magazine to get, this one is probably it.

    ...since its obvious that there are other avenues these days such as .NET (sorry, Mr McNealy). But Java Dvelopr's Juornal somehow inspires me each month to Keep The Faith. It's the best of breed that's unquestionable.

    The only objection I have is the price; but I guess we have to pay for quality. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars After 14 years, he STILL wants to read this......
    We first got this magazine when our son was 5 years old. He could not read, so we would read it together, and it delighted him. With lots to do from the object search (find the objects hidden in pictures), to the questions, quizzes, to the "how-to-draw" lesson featured in each issue, there was plenty to attract all ages of readers from K to , well, my son is now 19 and still reads it!

    It all started with our youngest daughter becoming 5 this past winter. Our 19 year old son found her pawing around in his hidden stash of NATURE FRIEND MAGAZINES which we had stopped getting over a decade ago. He kept carrying on about how he wished we could get it again "for her sake".

    I looked all over the internet, through every directory and in old editions of the magazine, but NATURE FRIEND seemed to have disappeared.

    Then we found it here on AMAZON.COM a couple of months ago. We got our first issue a few weeks ago and there is always someone reading it somewhere in the house- ME INCLUDED!

    The quality of the magazine is greatly improved. There is plenty to do for all ages, recipes, studies of interesting things (like where do dandelions come from and how did they get here and what do you do with them....) and interactive projects for all ages.

    One of our favorite features is the HOW TO DRAW series that they still have. Very nice lessons on drawing some kind of animal or natural thing are given. Readers send in their best shot at it and many photos of their contributions are featured in future issues. There is a lot packed in to this 25 page magazine- and NO ADS!

    I can not rate this magazine highly enough. We stopped getting BIG BACKYARD because this magazine offers so much more and we could only get one magazine for this year. We are so glad to have found it again- and it has even improved! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just say Yes to Odyssey!
    This magazine is sooooo much better than some of the other commercial publications. The writing is solid, the subject matter is solid. It's amazing how well written it is. There are no ads! They don't plug anything. I was sick of getting worthless ad filled kids magazines like National Geographic Kids. Odyssey is a must subscribe for every kid who likes science. Actually, it's just a must subscribe. Encourage your libraries to subscribe. This must be had in every school library. It contains relevant and important information delivered with a high level of writing. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Best Mag out for Reefkeeping Hobby
    This is by far the best magazine available to reefkeeping hobbyists. I have read every issue released so far. The magazine explains techniques promoted by modern reef aquarists around the world, and especially from Europe.

    Some of the techniques are very new and the methods are not always viable by many hobbyists who enter and exit out of frustration, but the magazine has a basic section for new aquarists.

    The reason for 4/5 stars is that some of the claims made by paid advertisers are insulting to the readers intelligence.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate magazine
    This is a wonderful magazine for anyone interested in reefkeeping.The topics are discussed in depth and the photography is awesome.This magazine is worth every penny. ... Read more

    Ceramics Monthly offers articles featuring influential international ceramic artists, sumptuous photographs, and current information on residencies, fellowships and grants. There is a good representational mix of abstract and functional, pottery and sculpture.
    Every issue I have had the delight of thumbing through has both pleased the senses and pushed the envelope of what ceramic arts can offer. I find even the advertisements have something to offer, great products, workshops etc. This Magazine is a very good buy! ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Fur in this day and age?
    Wearing fur in this day and age is sad and selfish.
    Little more is needed to be said than that.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate trapping, fishing, hunting, shooting magazine
    Most people think that this magazine limits itself to the wild fur trapping industry but they are wrong. Although a good portion of the stories and departments focus on trapping, the excellent fishing, hunting and shooting articles should NOT be overlooked. I find this magazine to be much more appropriate for the average American and Canadian outdoors person. Several do-it-yourself features and inexpensive alternatives give this magazine a realistic touch. Most other magazines seem to cater to whoever advertises on their pages but FFG seems to care about the readers success. If I had to choose only one outdoor sporting magazine this would be it! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars great tutorials, and a great read every month
    This is one of my favorite reads as far as digital arts from the UK, well written the tutorials are the off the hook and they always give you a cd with software to use. And as a graphic artist this is a book you learn by doing which i think is the best way to learn.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ideas, software, and lessons, oh my!
    I just discovered this magazine recently and it has changed my my perspective on using the computer. This magazine has allowed me to explore different software and gives me cool projects and tutorials as an environment to understand how proficient users take advantage of the software. This gives you an idea on how to make the most of the software. New ideas and type are also introduced. New releases of software and other resources (i.e. books) are reviewed. What more can a budding computer artist ask for?

    5-0 out of 5 stars ,,,
    Thia is a great magazine. It tells you the latest products and softwear, has readers art profiles. But it dosn't stop there. They give you a demo cd and the totorials to go with it. Also the art fearoured is amasing. There isn't anything missing in it wich anyone would want.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST magazine for digital illustrators and artists.
    Computer Arts has been around since 1995. Ever since its debut, as a bi-monthly magazine during the first few years, it has been THE authority for illustrators, digital artists, and web designers, both professional and amateurs. Its reviews, tutorials, profiles of up and coming names in the field, and the many samples of excellent software make this magazine not only unique within its field, but also a must-have for those who make a living out of the two and three dimensional arts.

    Among the goodies that CA has included in recent years are full versions of programs such as 'Freehand 8,' 'Canvas,' 'Amapi 3,' 'Poser 3,' and the learning editions of 'Maya' and 'Softimage XSI,' all of them with accompanying tutorials and valid registration keys. Likewise, with each issue the reader gets to sample the latest releases from big names like Macromedia, Adobe, and Procreate, allowing you to try and design before you decide whether to purchase or not. Many times they include special upgrade rebates, Photoshop plug-ins, and free (very expensive otherwise) images from important photography sources. Suddenly, the price of the magazine doesn't seem as high when you consider all these freebies.

    But the free goodies are not the only good thing about CA (and its sister magazine Computer Arts Special). The in depth tutorials have covered all aspects of print, web design, font creation, animation, movie-making, and every imaginable area in the artistic field. They always include the necessary files and keep a good number of old tutorials and resources at their own site, computerarts.co.uk. Moreover, the beautiful images and creations that adorn each issue make it a great purchase, even if it is only to keep as coffe-table decoration (for those who enjoy art but can't create it).

    All in all, Computer Arts is the BEST publication in a market full of tepid, irrelevant, and boring computer magazines. Oh, and the moderate amount of advertisement allows the reader to enjoy the images and witty columns without unnecessary distractions. The popularity of CA has proven to be such that some of its old issues have gone on e-bay at prices that exceed one hundred or more dollars. Furthermore, the local bookstores here in Miami always seem to run out of their many copies before the next issue's arrival. It is quite a shame that there isn't any magazine in the U.S. that comes even close to CA's greatness. Still, even at a relatively high price, this is a worthy buy and subscription. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Game business best practice magazine
    This is the only magazine to my knowledge that deals with business practices as well as technical topics of game creation. GDM has postmortem on recent successful games, summarizing how these games were made, what the creators did right and what they could have done better. They also has columns devoted to Project Management, Game design, Graphics technique, Product reviews and trend analysis.

    All in all this is a must have if you're in the game industry or, like myself, dream of being in the game creation business. Most of the time these articles do not go into a lot of details because of length constrain. That might be the only drawback. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent information about embedded systems
    I've been reading this magazine off and on since Electronics Now and Popular Electronics went down hill, and have been pleasantly suprised by the depth and quality of information provided. Design and implementation of topical projects are laid out and explained clearly along with the underlying theory. Don Lancaster always has an interesting spin on new products and ideas. If you're looking for insights into embedded systems development, look no further. ... Read more
