    I have been looking around for some good IT publications (magazines, newsletters, blogs, websites etc). I just wondered what you guys are reading?

    quite like the pc pro magazine. otherwise i dont really buy computer mags much as they are all aimed at hobbyists or gamers.

    Blogs again is a personal thing, you occasionally get a useful tidbit from asktheadmin and techhead is also pretty good.

    Once your an MCP the technet magazine is also a good read (and free too)

    I find the Micro Mart is quite good. Really cheap too, about £2 I think. Also, good expert sections, lots of nice reviews on hardware and software. And, the best bit - not too much space wasted on gamers and their graphics cards.

    Same as matt. I really like micromart, it's the only proper IT mag I buy.

    Other than that I usually just read through random internet articles, MS articles and browse general Techy news on google.

    BCS members get a free digital version of Computing emailed each week.

    Frequent here and some LinkedIn groups but don't bother buying mags anymore. reviews are inconsistent unles all done by same reviewer. One or two MS teccy sites I pop into. That's about it really

    Plus if you're a member/charter member of the BCS you can get CBR for free also. Microsoft Technet Magazine is a very good resource, we get it for free :)

    Can't remember how, I think I signed up for it thru one of the MS e-mails (see here *free to qualified IT Pro's), yup free and I believe there's an online version also - but I don't use that...
