All the news that's fit to print?

Possibly not! InfoWorld Magazine publishes their last print issue and goes web only.

Sad to see InfoWorld give up the print medium, it was the only thing I had to read in the john.

I guess they saw greener pastures in the online world. Sort of makes sense really. When was the last time that you flipped through a print periodical and found news that you hadn't already heard on the net? Going the Internet route gives them quicker access to their readers -- and at a reduced cost.

Just like I now see greener pastures, I suppose. Cut your losses, maximize your output, and reap the rewards. Goodbye to the old... In with the renewed. :lol:

That's true, I mostly read the opinion columns though.

There was a time when I received about 25 magazines at home, all were free due to my years in the IT business. InfoWorld was the last one I was receiving, so it's house and garden for me now.
