I agree with all that HP and the original TAS reviewers did for the industry. I subscribed from issue #1.

But,I sure hope HP doesn't do the same "I'll have more to say in the next issue" routine and then there is nothing, like forever in a follow-up. That strategy to get you to buy more, keep subscribing,etc. is an insult to his readers.

Also as an aside. Do you all consider a reviewer's age when reading their articles? A person at 65 is lucky to hear to 12kz. Something I definitely consider.

I just signed up for AS subscription during their latest promo ($14.95 for 10 issues). Just received the bill the other day.

Should I continue w/the subscription? $14.95 isn't going to break the bank -- but....

Best

Bob

just saw it. It'll be good to read Harry - there's no one quite like him.
