Please add digital as a free option for print subscribers!

Many other print magazines (Bon Appétit and Wired, for instance) include digital for loyal print subscribers, when the digital magazine often includes extra interactive content. Come on, *Future*, get with the times! You guys have always been great about rewarding your fans, let us at least keep a copy on the back of the toilet and the digital copy on our tablet.

If you do this, many of your print subscribers may eventually go digital-only when our houses are full of e-readers and tablets, thereby saving you money on dead trees. Plus, you know us old-hat fans will give you constructive criticism for improving the digital copy so you don't miss the boat on the future of digital print. But we're old and cheap, so we won't buy both!

It pains me to say it but give me Adobe Reader and a PDF, or a Kindle version - trying to read a magazine when your constantly having to zoom in/out (on a Nexus 10) is utterly pointless. Newsstand etc now completely uninstalled and previous app disabled. Ugh.

Just had an experience with Google (going to YouTube) where they forced me into Google+. Took a while to get out of that.

I'm leery about using any Google service now. I appreciate the gesture here, but I'll stick with my physical copy. Besides, resolution of printed material>>>>>>>>>qHD phone screen!

Bought it for 0.00 but can I access it on my Nexus 10? Can I feck! And now I come back to Max PC, on the tablet, I'm bombarded with Ads that overlay the browser - not just old school popups. My distinct impression of all this is to stay using a PC and to continue to avoid both paper and PDF mags, a waste of 25-30 mins of my life I'll not get back-so much for technology. WTF!? Another ad for some console game (killzone) has just popped up.

Lol guess who's website can't filter out the random stabbings of the save/
submit button of an incensed tablet user?!

I don't understand why it's 7.99$ ? I mean why paper copy equal digital ? Greedy publishers don't get it they need to change mentality.

This greedy publisher gives away the magazine after a few months. The PC world changes fast. But not that fast. Enjoy.

I went and got a Play Card. They never ask for my CC number since I use the card. I like it that way.
