Customer Reviews

Bargain price issues.

At $2/pop, who can complain? Furthermore, with constraints on time, missing the odd issue no longer leads to a pile of unread mags littering up the office. Finally, having quasi-permanent digital access to stuff which would otherwise be hopelessly lost inside a wobbling stack of paper has to be a useful example of entropy decay.


When I don't feel like reading a jargon-heavy scholarly journal articles on topics I am not an expert in, magazines like this fill the void. I LOVE the digital format of NS, which is more like an e-book than a PDF which is difficult to read on an iPhone. I can catch up at any time, anywhere.

New Scientist rocks

As a long time reader who has saved decades of issues, I'm finding the delta reduction mass/volume (bits/picometer^3 vs paper+ink+carbon footprint/m^3) to be proportionally accretive to key quality of life indicators. (i.e. Reduced tripping hazards in the less cluttered home, improved co-habitant relations, etc.) Thank you.
