Back to the mag
I’ve not been a big reader of computer magazines for a number of years now (not since I used to write freelance for several of them back in the ’80s and ’90s), but while browsing WHSmiths this past week, I decided to check out what was happening in the world of Mac mags. And what should leap off the shelf at me, but the September issue of MacFormat!
What particularly got my attention – apart from the friendly, accessible but still bleeding-edge nature of your magazine – was the “30 creative fun projects” theme of this issue, so much of which happened to chime with my own interests as a professional photographer, writer and retro computer geek.
I love the Apple Classics bit at the end of the magazine, too – apart from my main machine today (an eight-core early 2008 Mac Pro with triple screens), I’m still running (just for fun, of course) my Power Macintosh G3 beige mini-tower (1998) and Power Mac G4 MDD (2002). I’ve even got a Macintosh SE/30 lurking in a cupboard waiting for me to bring it back to the future...
So much fun stuff in one magazine, and such a great read – well, I had no choice but to subscribe – and now I can’t wait for the next issue! Stuart Williams Paul Blachford says: We’re really glad you enjoyed the magazine, Stuart, and especially the creative feature. We had a huge amount of fun coming up ideas to include and trying them out – it was a real team effort from our writers. Quite a few of us actually ended up trying the entries other people had suggested – we all found a bit of inspiration!
