It appears that IDG have been quietly amalgamating the Staff of the four magazines.

S, our new Game.

From style alone: Guess which magazine the Author, of each Article, has previously been writing for?

Some are obvious, others more difficult, but as each magazine has a dominant style it should not be impossible!

Is that why morddwyd became so incensed recently, The Beano editor has been recruited by IDG!

"It appears that IDG have been quietly amalgamating the Staff of the four magazines."

Perhaps off tangent slightly, but I gave up subscribing to a number of computer related magazines quite a long time ago, when the contents of some of those 'different' magazines seemed in the same or similar context, as if the same person might have been using someone else's material.

Wot I would like to know is - what they do with all of them unsold computer magazines that are left on the shelves, now that it's mostly all online and digital?

Does anybody remember this old game that was around about half-acentury ago?

Kicking the bucket is rarely a game of choice.

We have a person who sell all types of fairly late dated monthly magazines at £1.00 each at the local town market, this includes some computer magazines, but not including PCA.

Syndication dear reader, syndication. All media publishers do it, for obvious reasons.

The Telegraph seems to have been doing a lot of it just lately, although they are using Interns rather than Staffers from other Titles
