This magazine really has gone downhill and it's a shame. I first subscribed about 20 years ago, and there was decent info in there and some fun things to build. I subscribed again this past year, redeeming some airline miles for a year subscription, and it's not even worth e first problem I received had very short, maybe 1/4 page articles that touched on some of the basics of what they were talking about, but not much more than the bullet points of the topic. Gone are the in-depth analysis of yesteryear's problems and the magazine gone to the mainstream, dumbed down 'analysis,' if you could call it e main article of that first problem was something like 'how to drive without GPS.' It was about a 4-5 page article about not using the GPS in your vehicle and actually using a map. Really, this is a put where readers of famous mechanics need help? If it is, then the magazine is probably lost forever.Gone are the days of fixing engines, building gadgets, and learning actually how things work. I'm sad to see that in an era of almost unlimited learning through the internet, Famous Mechanics has decided instead to write very primary articles that are probably also covered in Amazing Housekeeping.....Edit: Case in point, recent problem talked about how to chop your own hair, 3 various types of barbecue sauces you can make, and a holiday bonus tutorial that's more apt for GQ as they recommended buying a $125 name brand flannel shirt. If you can obtain the subscription for free, there are usually 1-2 decent articles that may spark your curiosity to look up the subjects online to search actual analysis. If you can't obtain it for free, save your and just visit their www service and avoid all the Amazing Housekeeping and GQ topics.
Famous Photography is for a lot of of us an institution. In its print form it is said to have the biggest circulation of any imaging magazine today. Its first problem appeared in 1937, and despite several ownership changes, we can call it venerable, as it's still around. At one time, its main rival in print was was Modern Photography, which had been around for 52 years before it ceased publication in 1989, at which time its subscriber list was taken over Famous Photography, which had grown to be its larger t those familiar with the print edition, this Kindle Fire ver is also a monthly, and within it you'll search the editorials, features, photos, product announcements and reviews, along with the how-to the problem that I'm looking at right now, the "Time Exposure" column is featuring the September 1952 cover. There's a retro part with images featuring the Polaroid Model 110 Pathfinder, a model geared for pros that became an instant success (and pardon the pun). It cost $250 in its day, but is a real collectable ere's a section with the Top Deals for 2012, which is loaded with fresh and latest lenses, and it features the Vanguard SBH-100 Magnesium Ballhead, a private favorite. There's an in-depth lab review of the new Pentax K-30 Weather-Sealed DSLR, along with one on the Pro Optic 14mm f/2.8 ED wide angle lens created by Samyang. You'll search equipment sections along with product reviews, and the columns that we're used to in the printed-paper editions, and there are how-to articles throughout.And of course there are the inevitable ads, and they do proliferate. Yet in the Kindle Fire format one can just flip past them easily, or pause to read when an interesting one goes by. At this point I'll give this a 4-star rating. Its layout and editorial content are at a 5-star level, but without doing a page count, it appears that perhaps close to half of the content is ere is a solution: if you search the massive use of ads to be a distraction, look for the Menu icon on the bottom middle of the Kindle Fire's screen. By tapping on this icon, you'll see the choice between Page View (the default) and Text View. Tapping on Text View allows you to read all of the articles without the proliferation of advertising... yet all of the images are still there, and in full color as they appear in the magazine. Just imagine if you had an editorial assistant who took scissors to the advertisements and just chop them all out, leaving you with all of the text and aware that this publication is available only for the Kindle Fire and the Kindle for iPad (Version 2.9 or later) at this time.I can easily say that this Kindle edition of Popular Photography is worth a solid 4-star recommendation... and I'm enjoying all of the editorials, images and product reviews found in the print editions. A subscription to the Kindle Fire edition comes with a two-week trial, so you have a possibility to review it and see if it works for you.8/19/2012
Amazing to obtain back to reading an old friend. I subscribed to famous photography first method back in the 1950s. I did search it had numerous articles and found it simple to move beyond the ads. The magazine has to hold publishing some method and ads keeps famous photography going even after all these years.
Maybe it was just me but I felt like this application lacked dozens in some areas. And I honestly just wasnt happy with it just because I believe the application has method more potential than what I got out of it. Again, it may just be me. I just know what I am looking for is all.
The album grew on me. I'm a fan of 80's and 90's Cohen in particular, and I loved Ten Fresh Songs as well. But Dear Heather was a disappointment, and I didn't love Old Songs as much as I wanted to. I dismissed this album initially, but upon later listening and reflection, it's a stronger collection of songs than either of his latest two studio albums. I search myself putting it on when I don't know what to listen to, and it delivers. Not necessarily for newcomers (first albums are still I'm your Man and Songs), but a worthwhile addition to his canon. Create it your fourth purchase, after Latest Songs or Ten Fresh Songs.
I was really excited to obtain this, and bought it on a "lightening deal" so I bought it at a amazing price. But, there are so more ads than there use to be. I know that with the rise of online media, magazines need to use ads to stay competitive, but I feel like there are more ads than content.I do love the articles though. I am not a scientist, but have always loved science and technology. These articles are well written, with the info being accessible, but not "dumbed down".
I think that this application is really funny I love that they have comedy and so much more I would tell my bff to this and they told me about and they said that they fell in LOVE with this application and that they would change their ringtone with this application
