What am I going to read at the dentist office now????
I've said it before, I do miss the excitement of getting my monthly car magazines. Now, I barely read them as I've already gotten my fill from the internet. I miss that feeling of excitement.

I got cancellation notices in the mail saying you must pay us, this started in December or January. I explained to the monkey what the situation was, that did no good they stopped mailing CD so screw the *******s. They all use ******* billing agencies now, whether it's my dentist or my doc or my magazine scrip. Bye bye CD it was nice knowing you.
I still get MT but it's pretty much a snooze.

I did not renew my long-time print subscription to Autoweek when they stopped being a weekly publication.
I used to subscribe to Autoweek for years, and would eagerly wait for Thursdays.
I stopped the subscription around 2005 (along with a host of other magazines) when I realized that most of information and news I was looking for was online, and much earlier.
Progress does have casualties.
*And I was part of this one.
I didn't renew probably a year ago or so. It had become 80% ads, 15% motorsport (which I don't care about), and 5% articles I was interested in. Of the 60 pages or whatever it had become, there was about 5 pages of stories/reviews I wanted to read. And it came bi-weekly, meaning there was even less content overall. It just became not worth even the few dollars a year or whatever it was at the end.
I don't even browse Autoweek online either.
I haven't been a car rag subscriber for 10 years, although I do catch them through Apple News+, but the magazine format is still obsolete even in digital form. If there is one subject that isn't served well by print, its automotive reviews, it really belongs on video which is where I go for reviews now. And the quality of auto journalism was always terrible, the digital age finally let real expertise surface.
I was a subscriber up until this year but they never offered me a print renewal, only electronic - now I know why.
Probably one of the best auto magazines around. Will miss it.
I just subscribed to Car & Driver now - better help these guys keep going!
