For the feeble-minded. I can’t believe how little is in the magazines and how dumb it is. For instance – I got a survival issue. It said “make your own power, shelter, and grow your own food”. Sounded interesting. So, “make your own power” … it said to buy a generator. For “shelter”, it said to buy a modular house. For “grow your own food”, it said to make a garden (and buy a $1000 wheat mill). The rest of the article, supposedly about survival, is a story of how the author doesn’t have any survival skills and how his father put sprinklers on top of the house he built to help save it from a wildfire. A project in the magazine consisted of a “candy dispenser” that drops candy downward and through some pegs to land at the bottom. I remember when this magazine was good and had actual projects, like making radios.

No longer a magazine about mechanics Too much technology. This magazine needs to get back to basics. I’ve got the complete set of Popular Mechanics from the early 1900’s through at least 1940. It was a great magazine about mechanical methods & concepts. It’s turned into a 6th grade level Popular Science.

Sad to see Popular Mechanics like this Popular Mechanics was one of the first magazines I subscribed to when I was in my early teens, early 1970’s. It was a well written magazine with interesting articles targeted at average reading abilities. I loved it then, and it has helped keep me lightly informed on most of the innovative technological advances of the last 40 years. Unfortunately, this magazine, along with others like Popular Science, were bought out by large companies, who did not maintain the same standards, but are maxamizing their profit at the expense of quality. Among the many cost cutting initiatives, they have shrunk the font size to the point I can barely read the print. Yes I know they print denials of this regularly, but I have a few old magazines I can compare the new ones with, and the font is undeniably much smaller now. Also, the content is about 1/3 that of the older magazines. The paper is thinner and cheaper, and this accounts for some of the thinning of the magazine, but not this much…
