Web User is a new internet magazine that I picked up recently because of two main reasons. They were the fact that it was only 99p and also that it was exactly what I was looking for from an internet based magazine. This price has been announced by the magazine as an introductory price and it will be a cost of £1.20 once the magazine has been established.

I have brought this magazine on four occasions and I think they are now producing about there 9th or 10th edition. The magazine caught my eye on the shelf because it appeared to be very informative, laid back and featured many opinions from people.

The magazine is quite thin so it would mean that you don’t have two thirds of the magazine devoted to adverts fro companies like Dell although they do appear. The magazine is glossy, well presented and is very informative about the main issues that regular internet users in this country care about.

The magazine looks at software that is available on the internet and generally looks at the best sites that are available for people on the internet. The main topics included in the magazine are reviews on sites as well as offering some very good tips about what can be done to enhance your web experiences. They give you the best sites that are on the internet such as Ciao.com and talk about some new sites that you would have never thought existed.

One part of the magazine I liked was a section where they offered advice through a workshop. I know many magazines that are around at the moment offer this feature but they often involve using the most expensive task solving methods. In the magazine, it briefly tells you a common problem and a quick and easy way to solve it.

The magazine is available fortnightly in nearly any shop that sells magazines. It will almost certainly be under the computer section providing the newsagent doesn’t know what a computer looks like. As I said, the cost now is £1.20 although you can subscribe to the magazine on an annual basis.

I believe that this is by far the best computer magazine around at the moment that specialises in the internet. I defiantly recommend getting it. If you want more information about this magazine, you can go to its site which is www.web-user.co.uk and it will briefly explain to you why this magazine is the best.

I'm afraid that the economics are that if the magazine stays thin and low on advertising content it will either fold or have to increase the cover price. Most of the cost of production of magazines is borne by the advertisers. Enjoy it while you can. Paul.
