I stopped subscription years ago when I got a laptop and was able to get all content on line.

I did the same with my newspapers which the only thing worthy reading was the comics which now I view on line.

I find the magazines good but narrow in content.I like to read more to learn more diverse information.

My stepdad reads Money, Forbes, Kiplingers and one or two others. I don't think he reads Smart Money. He's into following the economy and investing.

I don't subscribe to many mags, since the back issues at the library are recent enough, and we are saving big-time to be able to live our dreams.

I stopped subscribing to Kiplinger's when it became painfully obvious that they were hiring "industry" writers who seemed more concerned with pushing their own positions in companies rather helping the readership (e.g., those hedge fund guys who write their value investing column and seemed to push Borders month after month.) I generally find the information online to be as reputable -- and it's free!

I have found that since I got a blackberry that I am reading more online and do not purchase a physical hard copy of a magazine anymore. I have been more partial to and fox business to get my reading material. They have had good articles from all of the magazines that you mentioned above.

I always kind of liked Money magazine too as it seems to have a broader range of topics. Also, I think just about anyone could pick it up and learn something, not just 'finance' people.

Not a fan of Kiplinger's or Smart Money. Used to like Kiplinger's more a few years ago. I have to admit though that I have not read the actual magazine in some time, it is the online material I have not been overly impressed with.

I've got subscriptions to Businessweek and Money right now. I like Money. They have generally good information it seems and they cover a lot of good personal finance topics. Businessweek is more business/economy related which is interesting but different focus. Businessweek is OK but I'm starting to not like it so much.

The only time I occasionally read one of them that's out of date is when I am in the waiting room at a Doctor or Dentist.
The Internet provides access to almost everything I need but I also read a few free newsletters e-mailed to me on the economy and the market from old customers that are in the investment business.

Some of these newsletter writers spend their market days in front of half a dozen TV screens or watching data feeds from market data providers, but then they're making money off the customers that invest with them so they have to stay on top of what's going on.
