I love MPC. However, I received the latest issue yesterday in the mail, eagerly flipped through it, to find out all of the reviews and articles I would be interested in had already been on the website before I received the magazine.

I know there's a fine balance between providing content for free, and selling a magazine, but I think the balance is a bit off. If I can get everything I want from the website for free, sooner, why would ever subscribe? Where is my added value for buying the magazine? (Ok, sure, I'm helping supply the staff with donuts and Mt. Dew, but beside that.)

I know! I just finished reading the build on the website. That's a few more pages I can skip in the next issue.

Only Cowboys can afford a Cow,But you still pay for the Milk at the Grocery store right? Unless you have good family that feeds you [then](and i know you do chores) You Don't need to buy the Cow. Besides Free-Grazing is still legal in some States out West.

It's just an expression.

If you translate your explanation into magazine terms... it doesn't really work :)

Basically, all I was saying is why pay for the magazine when all of the good content is provided free on the web, and the content is available sooner.

Or, in cow terms: Why buy a cow, when your neighbor gives you their extra milk for free?
