PC Adviser

Why is the tiscali disc stuck to the other side of the page which has usefull information on it? The page always tears when removeing the disc.Why can't it be stuck to the backside
(no pun intended)of a page with adverts on?

I want to know the same thing!

Is really annoying.

They could just drop the sticker in the packaging instead of sticking it into the magazine. This would be SO much better!

Doesn't make sense. Why should we have to wreck our precious PC Advisor magazine for the sake of having to get a cd out of it?

Have a look at

it seems Tiscali specify the glue used. Must be a superglue derivative judging by how differcult it is to get it off!

"They had this discussion on the letters page of the somewhat overpriced PC Answers some months ago and the readers were told that Tiscali insists on the CD being glued in rather than just inserted. i.e. no glue = no advertising revenue. I have noticed the glue does seem to be getting harder of late though. So far I have found that the best way of minimising damage is if you can remove the CD while leaving the glue on the page. Once separated the glue can usually be removed by rolling it."

Since when did any commercial organisation REALLY put the customers FIRST?!

"Since when did any commercial organisation REALLY put the customers FIRST?!" - sorry I take this statement back. For something so trivial I suppose it's a bit harsh & OTT : )))

All commercial organisations put their own survival first.
