As a loyal subscriber I look forward to the SPECIAL issues. I greedily grabbed the Winter 2009 issue and dove in with a gusto. The first article on Windows 7 was great, but then things went off a cliff. Starting at page 14 there were a series of republications of old articles. "Make your PC Better, faster, stronger" from the July 2009 issue. Page 28 "Fear not the BIOS" from the October issue. Even the first review of the "Polywell X5800A-Extreme" was also in the July issue.
None of this was declared on the cover to warn us. I've never seen a worse SPECIAL ISSUE in my life. Couldn't they find any new content? At least put in a hardware review that isn't 6 months old (considering the review was probably written 2 months before publication).
How do they justify the $9.95 price? That's a dollar more than a normal issue. I REALLY FEEL RIPPED OFF !!
