Nearly the same thing happens to 'Happy-Computer', but there it's a bit different: "Happy" always was a publication for people with not too much experience on computers. But since some time, they start talking about stuff that hasn't got to do anything with computers! Some examples are a list of the redactor's favourite books or hints for cheating in the tests at school! But because "Happy Computer" is a magazine for all the computers, it's not necessary for the Amiga-user and can be thrown in the dustbin without any tears in the eye.
The problem with the "Amiga Magazin" is, unlike the "Happy", that every freak needs some information about his computer and because he got used to buy that magazine a long time ago (When Amiga-Special didn't exist) and he can't stop buying this bullshit. So he spends 7.- too much a month and gets upset about the stuff he has to read. I think that's a shame !
Concluding this article, I'd like to say that if you are interrested in some good stuff to read you'd better save your money you wanted to spend for all the crap available (Most of all "Amiga" and "Happy") and you'd better get some copies of the newest disk-magazines like CJ or SN or ... ofcourse ... ZINE!
PS: What I wrote is just my personal opinion and if someone feels insulted by this text, he can write a letter to the editor with his statement and it will be published.
