Computer Shopper Ceases Print Magazine

Itís the end of an era. Computer Shopper, the venerable computer sales magazine, will no longer have a print edition as of the April 2009 issue. Sure, it was inevitable and I was actually surprised to see it still in print in this age of instant notification, but itís still noteworthy, especially for us old school tech guys who read the mag in the 80ís and 90ís.

To say that Computer Shopper evolved over 30 years' time is to say human civilization is susceptible to change, or that oceans are prone to undulation. It never sounded like it could be the driving force in information technology publishing, with a name that never changed from the days it was printed on cheap, yellow recycled newsprint and handed out for next-to-nothing in Florida's convenience stores.
